Stitching and stamping



I have been stitching turkeys lately!!!  I found these two charts and could not wait to stitch either of them.  They are both just super fabulous!!!!

The top chart is from Jenny at Country Rustic Primitives.  I cannot say enough about how great her designs are!!!!!!  Click HERE to go check out her charts.  They are without a doubt impossible to resist!!!





This turkey sampler is from an older chart....but it is so right up my alley.  Love the whole look and the threads for it.  I am hoping to frame it exactly as the chart shows.  

 I have stuck with my card making mojo too.  I am using up vintage images from books and magazines that I have been hoarding for years (and I mean years!) to make cards.  They look so great with patterned paper.


I also reordered some Gamsol.  This is a liquid that you can use with colored pencils to make any image look like an artist did it.  Love!!!!

It sure makes me happy to spend time with my hobbies and the friends I have that love them too!!!

I love your turkeys! They are great. Also, what a great idea for using your vintage pictures on cards. I haven't made cards in ages.
