Happy Turkey Day


This is not one of our turkeys - our turkeys are bigger and uglier.......and there are tons of them on the property, and most choose to scratch and make a mess out in my small flower bed area when they've got 5 acres to play on. I tell them to watch out or they'll end up in the oven.......they must know it's a hollow threat since neither one of us would be willing to kill and then butcher a turkey. So, back to where this turkey pic came from. It's from Sandra & Monte's front yard in Bigfork, MT - she sent it this morning and I loved it so much I wanted to share it. Our turkey is in the oven and came from the grocery store - it's being basted every 30 minutes with wine & butter, it's Martha Stewart's Turkey 101 recipe and is the best we've ever made.

I haven't had time to post any pictures of what I'm up to fiber wise in a bit, I have been busy though. Some of what I'm working on can't be posted since they're holiday gifts. I did finish weaving the towel warp, stack is waiting to be hemmed. I decided to weave off a long warp for mug rugs that's been on the small loom longer than I want to even think about - they just didn't interest me. I will get a picture of those up on the blog soon - an 8H twill pattern.

December 5th is Pacifica's 11th Annual Winter Fine Arts & Crafts Festival in Williams, OR. I'm busy finishing up items for my booth. Mostly what I showcase and sell the most of are my woven scarves & shawls but I also have knitted and felted items, felted soaps, jewelry, shibori silk scarves, spinning/felting fibers for sale. It's really a wonderful festival - in addition to art booths there is food, this year wine tasting, different musical entertainment each hour and free kids activities. Even if I didn't sell a thing it would be a fun day.


  1. gobble gobble gobble.....snort!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you too! That is a cool turkey picture!

    Sounds like you've been busy and will have some cool things to show us soon!

    Any time I see that you say "felted soaps" I wonder what that means. Soap encased in felt?

    Good luck prepping for the show! I hope the show goes well for you!


  3. Yes, it's soap encased in felt, it's great, like a washcloth and soap all in one. I'll have to get some pictures of the latest and post them soon.

  4. LOL, I think all wild turkeys are rather ugly but that is a great picture!

    I'll have to check out the Martha's recipe. I use one out of Bon Appetite from like 1993 or my mother's.

    It sounds like you have a wonderful array of beautiful items to go to the festival. Here's hoping for nice weather!


I love your comments - thank you!
