My turkey

Here's my turkey! He's just a placemat size and he took me so long to make back then (probably 10 years ago!), that I only made one. I haul him out every Thanksgiving, though and put him on the buffet or any available tabletop.

You're all welcome to come over on Sunday afternoon and share the turkey (the fresh one). Bill always fixes it in the Weber kettle (he refuses to have a gas grill and even when his last kettle finally wore out, he specifically requested a new one just like the old one!) We do like leftover turkey though -- I think cold turkey sandwiches can't be beat -- usually better than the hot turkey the first day.

Tomorrow I have to clean house, but I think I can squeeze in some time to get another leg on the tree skirt -- I actually woke up this morning thinking about that skirt. I've never done a quilt-as-you-go before and couldn't picture how you fold the fabric over in the back and hand stitch down, so I worked it out in my head while I was laying in bed this morning. It was a good way to stay in a warm flannel-sheeted bed instead of having to get up and face the rain-soaked day.

Oh the turkey is ADORABLE! And we still cook using a charcoal kettle grill too! It tastes way better!
