Primitive HAND hooked Turkey!
Remember those days from grade school when you would trace around your hand and then pull out the crayon box and make it into a turkey to take home for Mom to put it on the refrigerator for the Holiday season. Well I've been drawing around Sloan's little hands and showing him how to make turkeys and yesterday while he was napping I thought it might be fun to draw up a silly little hand turkey and hook up a little mat and that's just what I did. I finished the binding this evening and I hope to offer him on eBay in a couple of weeks.
My Mom bought Sloan this great lil' stick horse and gave it to him today. He loves it! He keeps telling me he's a cowboy and that he needed a horse so his great~grandma really came through. You push on it's ear and it whinny's and makes a galloping sound. He keeps saying Giddy Up....I'm a cowboy! When Papa got home he made a dash for the door and was out running across the yard riding his horse....I was hollaring "Whoa Cowboy"....that lil' horse and cowpoke sure do travel fast!
