There is just something about Turkeys that make them fascinating. Ben Franklin wrote, after seeing a new national emblem depicting a poorly-rendered Bald Eagle,

“I am on this account, not displeas'd that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turk'y. For in Truth the Turk'y is in comparison a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America.... He is, (though a little vain and silly, it is true, but not the worse emblem for that,) a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a grenadier of the British Guards, who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.”

I wanted to add a little more to the design, by way of a natural element, so I did some searching and found that the Oak Leaf represents Bravery. Having spent a good portion of my young years in Southern Oregon where wild Turkeys and Oak trees abound, I thought it a very fitting combination.

I hope you enjoy stitching this design as much as I did!
