I'm a girl on a mission...

... a turkey mission! :D

Hi guys,

A while ago some of you may remember me posting about making Alan Darts Tipsy Turkey for me and my families Christmas dinner table as we are vegetarians so don't have a real one. Long story short I didn't manage to finish him as all my time was taken up by making Christmas presents for people, but this year I am determined to finish Quirky (that is what I am going to call him! :-)

I did manage to finish quite a lot last year, I pretty much just have the tail and all the sewing together and extra details left (which take all the time really!)

Well, i'm off to knit a few more rows to get me closer to having my finished turkey :0)

See you all soon,

Bye! xxxx
