oscar’s stuffed hand turkey

phew! I’ve been trying to upload this photo all day. comcast SUCKS IT*

I’ve been dying to show off Oscar’s latest Thanksgiving project. Thanks Marigold for the link and thanks to Bella Dia for the cute idea! I traced Oscar’s hand on fabric and he sewed it up all by himself. His first sewing project! He had such fun stitching it up and has been begging me all day to do more sewing. Thanks for all the fun crafts suggestions. We’ve got a full project to-do list now. Thanksgiving is making a comeback.

* they’ve blown off our service calls 2 days in a row. I’ve had some insufferable conversations with customer service. “sure, one moment, I can do that”… 10 minutes later! and now they’ve got me hanging on “instant” chat for 10 minutes for heaven knows what.. oh wait. to try to sell me phone service. good grief. if you’re wondering why I am crabbing about it here, it’s because I’m testing a theory. thanks for bearing with me.

    We have the same problem with Bresnan, our internet will be running as slow as molasses for ever and when hubby calls to complain, it will miraculously speed up for a day or two, then slow back down. Really annoying as we are paying for the speed. Hope all of your issues resolve quickly.

    Oh, sorry, forgot to say what a great idea for the turkey, it’s gorgeous. My six year old did his first sewing project a couple of weeks ago, sewing a Christmas tree ornament based on one of his drawings, it was so great to see him work on it. It turned out brilliantly. Please tell your little guy that his turkey is fantastic.

    How cute is that turkey?
    Crab away — Comcast truly does suck. Two years ago we had serious Comcast trouble, and I ended up getting to know my Comcast guy quite well. We watched most of a Cubs game on TV together one afternoon while waiting for another worker to deliver some equipment.
    We ditched ’em and went with RCN in the end. Much better!!

    wow!!! that’s amazing that he did that! and he didn’t get hurt by the needle too many times? i’m wondering if levi can do something like this…i think he’s a few months younger than oscar.

    I once crabbed about Comcast on Twitter and got swift, cheerful resolution of my problem from a guy named @comcastbill. Maybe try twittering about the problem? If you search twitter for “comcast” it is almost entirely complaints, so I can see why they are trying to fix some things for the most vocal complainers.

    Oh, that’s the cutest dang turkey. Must do this with Rebecca and Jessica’s handprints, too.
    I totally sympathize with you on the Comcast thing, sorry. Don’t even get me started on Verizon.
    Oh, and can you (or Tim) help me with the sign in for comments thing? When I click sign in with TypePad, it just reloads your page and nothing else happens… do I have a pop-up blocker or something that needs to be disabled to allow me to sign in to comment on certain sites? On other sites it will bring me to the log in with TypePad page, but when I enter all my info and click Sign In the same thing happens, the page just reloads and then nothing happens. What the…?!

    Yeah, I made a mention of Comcast issues once on my blog and they commented on it right away. I dealt with a “Vice President” and got promises about having my issue escalated. I got all excited and started a whole blog post about how their blog and twitter team was so awesome. That post never got published…
    Unfortunately, after that team passed me off to my local group, service bottomed out. I actually ended up figuring out and fixing the problems myself because I gave up on them.
    Good luck!

    Ack! That turkey is adorable! Such a great idea, and Oscar did a beautiful job! I’m definitely doing that with my kiddos. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a little over a month now. Thank you for having this blog! Your are fantastic and I love this turkey idea–now, giving control to my six-year old to do a sewing project… that will take some patience and guts on my part! But really, a good idea.

    This is just about the cutest Thankgsiving project I’ve seen! I made up two for my youngest sons and they are so precious to me, thanks for this great idea. I posted about them on my blog and linked to your post in order to give credit to the original idea. I’d love it if you had time to check them out, please consider yourself invited!!!
