Thanksgiving Week

Design - "Thanksgiving Sampler" (kit)
Designer - Heart in Hand
Fabric - 32 count Clay Belfast linen
Fibers - GAST & WDW - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - November 2011
Completed - 20 November 2011

I liked the whimsical turkey with his multicolored tail feathers.
I'm making good progress on "Pumpkin Pie", and I have a new start ready to go that I'll post about tomorrow.

Our rain gauge was full to the brim when I emptied it Saturday morning.  Two inches or more of rain.  Now we have a couple of more storms coming ashore - the first early this morning, the 2nd and stronger storm is to arrive Tuesday morning.  

This kind of weather makes for lots of mushrooms.
These are Shaggy Mains.

I like the striped effect on this little charmer.

Here's one that has 'over opened' for lack of a better term. 

I found this cluster of small mushrooms growing on the side of a stump.

Such a cute finish!!

I love hunting for mushrooms. Just to look for them, mind you, not eat. They are just so odd looking, some of them. :)
