My Little Plaid Turkey

We got more snow this weekend in Colorado! It was the perfect weather to sit and work on this little pillow that's been in my head for a while. (Actually, to be honest, I have had the little turkey cut out since last Thanksgiving. But never the motivation to finish the job!)

I thought it was a cute addition to the Thanksgiving decor around here. I am debating if this guy can hang around all year, or does he have to go into hiding after the fall? I just love the colors in the plaid.

What do you think?

I *love* that plaid too... beautiful colors! Who says he has to hide after Thanksgiving? I say if you like it... keep it out!! :)

I think he looks great & should definitely hang around for a while.

Since it looks like you've got more fabric...make other pillows for other seasons. Make a scarecrow for fall, a santa for Christmas (fabric as his pack?), a bunny for spring and summer... Attach the designs with velcro so you don't have to make too many actual pillows.

I say it's your house, so its your call. I have some bunnies I leave out all year because they just make me happy! I think Mr.Turkey may do the same for you. It's adorable!

We had snow in Spokane Washington this week too! The kids loved it. . . and I had a perfectly justifiable excuse to listen to my Elvis Presley Christmas CD- not that I needed one ( :

Very cute pillow. I tried my hand at maple leaf rose centerpiece for our thanksgiving table- but couldn't find enough large leaves ( I waited too long). So I'll have to think of something else homemade to spruce the table up with this year.

LOVE IT>..I don't know that I could put him away either......

Lisa & Gerald said...

Awwww too cute... looks great..Oh keep him out year round..I would...

allthingsjuice said...

Call me traditional, but I'd put him away after Thanksgiving. He'd lose his specialness if he were hanging around all the time.
