Not too much stitching in the last few weeks. Seem to have spent way too much time fighting off one kind of minor health problem after another. I was scheduled for jury duty too, but luckily my number was high enough that they didn't need me on the actual day so I was excused.
One piece of good news during my downtime.... a big, beautiful, new Joann's fabric and crafts store opened in a mall nearby! Usually, I just hear about these things closing. What a pleasant surprise!
When I finally felt a bit better, I just wanted to stitch something cute. So out came "Bok Bok", a freebie from Plum Street Samplers that came out in 2009. You can still get the pattern here. He's such a an elegant little turkey, stitched on a piece of lavender hand-dyed Aida. I turned him into a coaster/mat to use for the season. I'm afraid the guy got all dressed-up without knowing his Thanksgiving fate!
I also managed to finish a square for a WOCS quilt. They are doing a couple of quilts for wounded warriers and vets. I thought this sweet piece, "Pride and Glory", from Threadworks Primitive would work well for the theme. The rules required white, 14 count fabric, and I had one lone piece of Aida in my stash that filled the bill.
