November Finish

 Here it is all finished up and I really love how it came out. I hemmed and hawed about what threads to use, in the end I used Carrie's Fall Splendor for the leaves in each corner, and the lovely Knitty Gritty hand dyed thread from yarnplayer on Etsy. I used Poblano Pepper by Crescent Colors for the house, Indian Summer by Weeks Dye Works for the month and the shutters, Crescent Colors Dark Chocolate for the border, roof, windowpanes, trees and turkey as well as the acorns in between the leaves where I omitted the flowers. I did the acorns in satin stitch and the remaining leaves in Knitty Gritty.  I debated about the turkey for a while, finally found a freebie online and did it in one over and changed the tail a bit to fit it in. I think this is my favorite block of the whole year, (my birthday's in November so maybe I'm On to December!
