I started a new project - cuz I really needed one, right? I couldn't resist it though. I've been going on about it being Fall and everything that feels fallish to me seems like I should be making it. One of the blogs I read is one of the two ladies of The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. Last week the first picture of her blog post was this adorable turkey pattern! And it looked small and manageable to try. I've been admiring their patterns for a long time but I'm not much of a cross stitcher so have not wanted to take on one of the bigger items. But they're SO CUTE!
Anyhow, I saw the picture and was like eeeeeee! And bought the pattern. I have tons of embroidery thread that I've acquired and also aida cloth. So, I went through my stash and picked out colors that are *close* to the pattern. So even though I did spend money on the pattern I'm still staying in my parameters I set for myself of not buying fabric/craft items until I've checked my stash first. It's a win.
I started it last night and this is how much I've gotten of the turkey body. I put on a knitting podcast and stitched.
