Dressed for DinnerFebruary 3, 2008
I have made more progress on Mr. Turkey.
His head and neck tie are done. I picked out buttons for his vest and one for his eye but I’m not going to put them on until after it is quilted. Hopefully I won’t lose them by then. I also redid part of his comb.
I don’t know if you can see on top of his head here in this old photo; the large loop has some pointed areas that did not make a smooth curve. That is where I clipped the curves in order to make smooth curves. It didn’t work. On the small part I did not clip the curves and it came out smoother. So I removed the large part and did it again. Much better! No more curve clipping for me!
I’ve been debating whether this really is a turkey, or what. In the pattern it is called a turkey. But I thought only roosters had combs. But if it was a rooster it would need a wattle under its chin, right? I don’t know- I’ll just call him a turkey.
Next comes his tail!!
