Miss Turkey Lurkey and Children

Hi friends! I found a fun, small freebie I have had printed out for 3 1/2 years. I decided I needed to stitch this up now. I am glad I did. I think it is very cute. Meet Miss Turkey Lurkey and her children. And yes, this is the name I gave them! ;) Did you know that some turkey hens strut and display their feathers? It is not common, but my turkey mama is doing it!

I tracked this freebie down again. The blog has changed a bit, but the pattern still appears HERE.
I stitched this one over two with DMC, on 40ct Meadow Rue linen. The linen was a gift from Barbara. Thank you Barbara! :) I used DMC 3045,869, a mystery dark brown, and 676. This now is up in the cubby shelf.
I am stitching the November 'A Year Of Celebrations' by Hands On Designs now.

I had the upper and lower scopes done on Wednesday. The GI doctor said I look good in there. He did take two biopsies from my small intestine. He tested for Celiac Disease. I do not have it. I heard back from him yesterday. He would next like to have me swallow a small pill camera in his office so he can check the 18 feet of intestine he could not get to with the scope. I am back on my iron pills and am hoping to get better every day.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friends. Thank you for stopping by today. I plan on having another giveaway next week.

Stitching and praying,

Oh my, is this a lovely freebie, Vickie. It must look so great in your November cubby shelf.
I always hope with you and keep my fingers crossed that the doctors find something to improve your health situation.

What a fun finish :-)

What a fun finish :-)

Hoping you you will feel better soon.x

Such a pretty finish Vickie. It's great addition for your November display.
Wonderful weekend for you as well.

Angela Tucker said...

Good morning, Vickie!! I'm glad the doctor is moving forward and checking other options. Have a wonderful weekend! And really? It's on November 4th and you've already finished one project? You go girl! LOL

Mii Stitch said...

What a fun pattern!
Love the fabric colour :)

I've heard about that camera pill. Amazing what they develop to help us be diagnosed. I can't swallow a tic-tac so that leaves me out! That's a nice looking turkey and she's over two which makes her even nicer.

Jenny said...

Hooray! So far so good! You are looking good my very dear friend! I couldn't ask for a better way to start my day! I am so glad for you!

Your turkey is just her! What a precious way to start November!

Hugs my friend! Enjoy your weekend! I'm still praying that you will feel better every day!

Oh Vickie, I am glad your scopes went well. That is good news. Miss Turkey Lurkey and kidlets are adorable. Thank you for providing the link! Have a peaceful and relaxing weekend.

Justine said...

Miss Turkey Lurkey and her chicks are adorable! I bet they look great in your cubby.

CalamityJr said...

Turkey Lurkey is a cutie! Thanks for re-finding the source. Glad you got your results quickly. Even though you don't yet have a diagnosis, letting you start the best treatment, having things ruled out is an important part of the journey. I pray you get answers soon.

The Knitting Cross Stitcher said...

I love this design!
Glad nothing has been found Vickie,but hoping that the source of all your problems does get found out.
Hope you have a good weeekend too.

Manuela said...

A lovely little design. I like it.
It will be wonderful in your shelf.
Have a nice weekend, Manuela

Linda said...

Congrats on the cute finish Vickie. I sure hope they can find the problem.


Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

The sky is falling in! Love turkey lurkey and her babies. What's a baby turkey called I wonder?
At least you've ruled out one thing. Coeliac comes with a special diet which would be another thing to worry about.

Margaret said...

Love the finish! Wow, swallow a small camera! That is pretty cool that one can do that now. I hope you're feeling better and the testing goes well too.

Von said...

Cute little turkey perfect for November!
Glad the results of the scopes looked good and celiac is a negative! Can't help but imagine a tiny little drone with a go-pro going through your intestine to check things out. :D Hope it all goes well!

gominam said...

Great you still have this and finally stitched, another nice addition to the cubby shelf. Hope you'll finally get good news soon and feel much better. Take care.

Barb said...

What a delightful little turkey stitch. I hope they soon find out what is causing your problems! So far,good news.

Bea said...

Terrific little design and beautifully stitched. I'm pleased your tests went well and possibilities are being ruled out. did you ever think you would write the phrase "swallow a camera" and have it relate to you?

CJ said...

I love Turkey Lurkey.

Wow, who ever thought of swallowing a camera to find an ailment. Sounds so Star Trekish.

Keep us updated. Praying for you.

the turkey is super cute. I hope your health improve.

Carol said...

What a cute finish, Vickie--and I like the colors you used!

Those mini-camera pills truly amaze me--I hope they can track down any problems and help the doctor make a diagnosis.

Enjoy your weekend!

Andrea said...

What a cute freebie design ... as is the October piece you put together. Wow , swallow a tiny camera. I have trouble with a headache tablet, I have to have ones that dissolve in the mouth.

Stitchy Mc Floss said...

What a cute finish! :) You did a great job, as always sweet friend. Blessings always.

KimM said...

Adorable finish, Vickie. You find the cutest patterns. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Ann at Beadlework. said...

I'm glad you got good news after the scopes Vickie and also that at least that part is now over and done with.
The camera sounds very cool - I hadn't heard of this actually being done. I hope it goes well too and that your iron levels start to rise. Take care.

Maggee said...

Cute finish there! I will be finished within the hour with #12 of the LHN Sheep Virtues! As planned!! Ahead even!! Glad you have received a good report on the scope test results! I have heard about the camera is amazing! Hugs!

Karyn said...

Great finish, Vickie, I love your floss and fabric choice...and thanks for the link :)
I'm glad to hear that you are "looking good," now if you could just feel good too, that would be wonderful. I'm so relieved that it's not Celiac, a few of Ian's friends have it and it is a tough life change. I will continue to pray for some relief and a conclusion...hugs, dear friend.
Thanks for keeping us posted, and good thoughts are always being sent your way.

diamondc said...

Vickie: I do hope you have a good Dr. appointment, I still include you in my daily prayers.
Love that Turkey and babies, so sweet, thank-you for sharing with us and for the link.

Hello dear Vickie,

I hope you have a good day today!
Your miss Lurkey Turkey can be very proud of her enormous bunch of feathers :) It's a lovely finish!

Take care, my friend & hugs across the ocean,
