today, i started on miss b’s turkey. i got to use my new, fabulous bee line townsend hooking frame. I’ve been reluctant to get back to hooking (you can click here to see why). and, while it wasn’t entirely paw-free, i enjoyed it thoroughly!

i finally got a photo of my progress…
miss b’s turkey
as you can see, if you look past the actual hooking, my drawing skills leave lots to be desired. i must have drawn the turkey’s head four times, with a sharpie no less, however, since i draw my patterns on my backing freehand, there are always lots of extra lines and blobs and various marks. that’s simply the way i do things. i know there are far more efficient methods, but i like to be comfortable.
what do you think, lilly?
“it’s a snake!” ~the lilly-lou-hoo
lilly likes to steal the wool strip that i am about to use and pretend that it’s an enemy. once she reduces it to a pulp, she carries it around and mourns over it.
we have many turkeys in our neighborhood and woods. some people think turkeys are ugly and awkward, but i think they’re extraordinary. the females are amazing mothers, and the males are so graceful when they’re courting. i’m proud of my niece for seeing the artistic side of our natural world!
until i can get to my hooking under all these cats…
