Thanksgiving, Down the Rabbit Hole
This is Strutter a design from Primitive Gatherings I stitched up and I did Gobble till I Wobbled, just noticed my spelling error!
I took a fresh turkey and all the trimmings over to cook at my mom's place. She lives on the 13th floor and looks to the south and west. Some of the trees are starting to turn in our area.
This is the same bridge that I show in my photos but being high up you can see that there is an island where the Fraser has two arms. I live just before the splitting to the North and South arms.
Mom also has a view to the North as she is on a northwest corner. A bit more colour to these trees.
I got my hexagon borders on Thanksgiving Day and brought it up and laid it out on her queen sized bed. There are still two more borders to come so it will cover the top and drape down the sides.
At this point I forgot to bring leaves I had intended on starting to applique while we waited for the turkey to cook.
But I got them finished this morning. This is the top left corner, notice the bunny on the sunflower. I orientated the blocks so on each corner they are facing the correct direction.
Top right with two different leaves. I did the stems all the same and used two of the other hexagon prints for the leaves and two more.
Bottom Left corner.
The next border has two large leaping bunnies centred with a tulip in the middle on the top and bottom. These four borders will be worked over the next three months with the pieced border don during the third month. On the sides will be two sitting bunnies centred with a heart. Other flowers and vines will be added. Off to cut my borders so I can start stitching. I'm caught up!
