Turkey, Turkey is ready for blocking and binding. He was just so much fun that I couldn't stop working on him.

Not wanting to sort the leftover worms from the turkey into the overflowing worm bags I recently organized, I decided to start this pattern. I had specifically set it aside with the intent of using up some of those worms.

The pattern is My Way by Hooked on George. I bought it years ago from the store at Caraway, and have always liked it. Did I need to start another rug?? Of course not.....but it will be fun to use up a few of those worms.  I know, they just multiply, right?  I am saving my Fancies rug to work on at an upcoming retreat....that is a "sort of" excuse for starting this rug. The real reason.....I just wanted to.
What can I say?

I have also been working on Comfort and Joy.  All of the pieced blocks are done except two paper pieced blocks.  Hoping I can get this one out of the way this week.

My busy weekend is done.  Family reunion for Blake's Adcock Family....check.  Can't Never Could Georgia Cup Sporting Clay Fundraiser at Big Red Oak.....check.  Deep breath.

Truett's Chik Fil A Luau furnished our lunch on Friday.  L-R: Christi, Rob, Mariah, Cyndi, Ryan (from Chik Fil A) and yours truly.  Many thanks to the all of the folks who worked together for the success of this event.

Big Red Oak is a gorgeous location.....acres and acres of beautiful, wooded land, wildflowers, streams and wildlife.  We got to see a pine grove where the new Hunger Games was filmed....

And, no, Jennifer Lawrence wasn't there.

Guess that catches me up for the moment.

And Max Lucado, who helps us to understand that we don't have to be eloquent. God simply wants to hear from us.

Take Care,


  1. LOVE the way your turkey rug came out. You hooked that quickly.
    Your new rug will be a wonderful way to get rid of some worms, but they do have a way of multiplying!
    Hugs :)

  2. Good colors in the turkey. Will be a good rug to display somehow during November. We see wild turkeys when we take the toll road between where we live in Melbourne going over to Orlando.

  3. The wool you used in the border of your turkey rug looks just like Indian Corn - perfect place for it! I love your new rug project - scrappy in quilts and rugs are always my favorites. Good luck using up your worms (but I bet you end up with even more of them when you're finished LOL!)

  4. Turkey turkey finished up beautifully! And, looks like comfort and joy just might make it for this Christmas! :-) Chick-fil-A is the best fast food in the industry!
