Freebie Finish

Years ago I was a cross-stitching fool like lots of people who are crafty. Unfortunately, all the designs I stitched were trendy, like geese & country hearts - so needless to say, none of it is displayed in my home anymore. I recently started doing a little more stitching when I discovered designers like Stacy Nash & Primitive Betty. Betty has a wonderful blog and often shares small simple designs with her fans. Earlier this week she had a Thanksgiving turkey posted that I liked, so I just finished stitching it up, putting my own slant on it by splitting the design into two projects.

Wow, I love it! Especially the way you slit the pattern apart and made two pillows. Thanks for sharing the design and the info about the freebie.

I haven't cross stitched in years. It used to be so therapudic. Looks like you are ready for Thanksgiving.
