Laura and I have been busy. I know how to sew and she is the artistic one. Several posts ago, I showed y'all the shirt that she made for Halloween (spider). She teaches pre-school and is working on her master's in education so she can wear fun and silly shirts to work on holidays. When I got home from work, she had all the pieces cut out. She free-handed the patterns and picked her fabric from the remnant bins at JoAnn's. One of her co-workers liked her spider shirt so much that she asked her to make a Christmas tree shirt for her little girl to wear in their family Christmas photo. I think she is going to wear a purple tutu with the shirt . . .that is why there is a purple bow on top of the tree.

Here is a close-up of Laura's turkey . . .yes, it is a girl and she has a hairbow :-) I have sewed and smocked and made hairbows over the years but I never appliqued. My mother-in-law always did that part for me. This has been a learning curve for me. I would love any tips you might have to share.

A middle-aged mom and a young adult daughter - we make a great team!!

When my kids were little, I was always making them holiday shirts and sweatshirts. Love the turkey!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving day.
