Weekend Work

My thoughts are with everyone who experienced the devastation and disruption of Super Storm Sandy. Our church took up a donation for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) to help with disaster response yesterday. It's such a small thing but I hope those affected know how much support there is for them throughout the country.
October was just a mess for me. I got behind early in the month and could never catch up.  My craft room was a mess; I couldn't find all the right threads for a project I'm working on; I never had the right food in the house to make dinner, whine, whine, whine. So I finally used this past weekend to get caught up and reorganized. I cleaned up my craft room and assembled a sewing project, found the threads I needed for my projects and kitted them up so they're all ready to go and made a big pot of kale and bean soup so I have dinner ready to go for at least the next few nights. I'm so proud of myself to finally be starting a week without feeling behind. LOL!
I also put my Halloween decorations away and pulled out my turkeys. I have a "thing" for turkeys. It started innocently enough with the purchase of an old chalkware turkey and has grown from there. I still love the old turkeys...
But I also love the ceramic ones from Japan which probably date back to the 50's.  Some of them have very faniciful colors.
 

Some are more realistic.
And then there also a few from my artisan friends like this ceramic one from Chris Farr.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Happy November!
