Turkey-schmurkey and a Little Elf

I think that if I never see another bite of turkey again, it will be too soon. Although, my family is doing a splendid job of comsuming what appeared to be a mountain of it in the refrigerator. We've made turkey sandwiches, creamed it and put it on toast, cooked it up with eggs for breakfast and it will be going into soup tomorrow. Yikes! I know they are the little bird of thriftiness but, really, you can have too much. I think I'll freeze the soup.
To work off all that turkey, my sister, niece and I have been creating. This is what I've been working on:

Oh, dear. This is a terrible picture! But, it will have to do as this little elf is packed up and will be traveling home with my sister today. My niece's school has a silent auction on Friday and this little bit of impishness will be on the table. Gee, I hope she does well!
I will be making one more this week, for a gift. They are a little labor-intensive but I love making them. It's funny how all of my elves and fairies have that same wide smile. They all look like my grandmother!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and have recovered from your Thanksgiving feasts! Please don't send me turkey recipes. I don' t think I could take it. :)
