Turkey On a Stick

At the November quilt guild meeting, a flock of turkeys huddled on the table reserved for snacks. We'd all seen similar treats in magazines, but their appearance was as much of a sensation as if we'd sited a mythical golden tailed phoenix in the wild. Determined to capture this special event, I lined up a few turkeys but had to fend off hungry people who kept grabbing one from my line of posing turkeys instead of choosing one from the remaining flock. A guild member made these. It was a fine activity to share with her children and her sister. Creative pursuits come in endless forms. I admire and applaud a well-crafted donut turkey. Those kids will remember the fun and satisfaction of making them. If you can make a donut turkey, the whole world of art lies ahead.
