Two years ago I posted https://catherinewhallsmith.com/2010/11/23/is-it-big-enough/ – I contemplated if my 22 pound turkey would be “big enough”. My goal at that time was one of producing larger sized hand-quilted fiber art. A year later (https://catherinewhallsmith.com/2011/11/23/catherine-smith-wishes-you-a-happy-thanksgiving-and-wonders-does-size-matter/) I reflected on the fact that I had explored a larger format with triptych’s and diptych’s – and I had decided to cook two 14 pound turkeys that would certainly be “big enough” .
In 2012, my pieces have become larger. The picture above shows “Gold Hay #6” hung behind the pan that is my favorite way to cook a turkey. This roasting pan was given to me by my mother-in-law Marge many, many years ago when I suggested that I might “do Thanksgiving” that year. I immediately became the owner of “the Turkey Roaster” and continued to “do Thanksgiving” from that day forward. The turkey this year is a 16.9 pound Free Range Barrel Brined, No antibiotics ever, fed all vegetable diet, no growth hormones, complete traceability to farm TURKEY!
It fits the roaster – so it will be “Big Enough”.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING – may everything be “big enough”!
