Turkey Time and Flurry & Flakes SAL BLOCK 4 A Blustery Day

Good morning, ya'll and to all of those in the U.S. a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones. Wishing you a day of blessings, happiness and warm memories of those who are no longer with us.   

I am so grateful  for so much in my life  including you. Thank you for the sweet visits, kind words and for  being so supportive. Mere words can not express how grateful I am . 🤗

Today , we will be  celebrating Thanksgiving at home.This is the 1st year that I am hosting so most of the family will arrive in a few short hours.  Two  turkeys will be going into the  oven . Fingers crossed I can replicate Mom's dressing . 

A large  folding table will be set up in the living room to make room for all of those attending.  There may be anywhere from 12 to 20 family members. This will be our 2nd Thanksgiving without my sister. It is so heartbreaking , but I feel her with me everyday. And I know she is here with us in spirit. I will have photos of her displayed on the tables nearby as we have been doing this for all get togethers nowadays. 

But I must not forget that today is Embroidery Thursday . Block 4 in the Flurry and Flakes SAL is all stitched up. It is called A Blustery Day.  

Papa Flake is being blown about . "Hold onto that hat, Papa  Flake! It's a wild and woolly day!  "

If you would like to embroider A BLUSTERY DAY , grab the image below. 

Many of you know that I am no longer able to create clickable links to jpg downloads.  Here is a little note about that situation. . This explains about getting the charts or doodles as well. 

NOTE: Normally I have been able to create links to the charts and instructions which were in JPG form. For some reason, recent updates on Google Docs. has prevented me from doing that and I am not able to create a pdf without having to deal with storage issues. . Many dear stitchers say they right click, save the image and then print.  I think some have copied and pasted it to a Word document that they can print off as well. I hope you are able to find a way to enjoy this chart. You will have to click each page to save .  . Thank you so much for your patience and understanding and for all of the helpful tips and ideas.  


If you have missed BLOCK 1  WINTER WELCOME"   , BLOCK 2- Snow Day  and  SNOW RACE , click the colored text, and you will whisped back to the previous posts .You will also find information on what size I cut my fabric and the particulars in the Winter Welcome post .   


Before you leave, I  have another quick stitch for you . It is called Winter Haul

 Lookie!!! It is  Papa Flake fixing to pull Baby Flake in a wagon.  I have not fully finished mine, but I hope to soon, and then I will post another photo. 

If you would like to stitch Winter Haul, grab the images below.  





Well, ya'll I am off to enjoy the festivities.  I have a date with a big plate of turkey , dressing and all of the sides.  Have a wonderful day. 

As always...

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, ya'll
