Gobble, gobble, don't spill on me!

If our Thanksgiving turkey looks like this, I may have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!  I'm sure Colton wearing this bib will improve the turkey's image at least 100%.
What is more rare than this brightly colored bird? I didn't buy ANY fabric or thread to make this! Everything but the ribbon was already in the house. I wasn't convinced the neck opening was large enough to fit around Colton's neck and close with Velcro so I decided to add ribbon ties. The only narrow grosgrain  I had was stark white so I made a trip to Joann's for a spool of tan ribbon. The fabrics used for the turkey were coordinating prints left over from a baby quilt made earlier this year. I tried traditional turkey colors first but it looked drab. I don't like drab!

Speaking of drab, we have heavy fog AGAIN here in SE Michigan. This has been with us off and on since Tuesday. Please someone, take it away, but don't replace it with the snow that I am hearing about in Minnesota. I'm not asking for all that much....just warm weather and a body that looks and moves like this...

We are raining leaves today! Hope you are having a good weekend in spite of the fog!
