Turtle Tuesday

What a fun day we had making our little turtles, its an Anni Downs pattern....." Turtle Pincushion" ..... such a little cutie. Teresa, Sandi and me were joined by  Lynda  even though she was in NSW.  I've never made hexies before but I can now see why they are so popular, maybe I will have to make something bigger next time as it is so relaxing when you get going although this little guy was a bit fiddly.


He was checking out the pot plant.


Not sure what he is looking for here but he is tucked up inside now as its getting a bit chilly outside.


Oh goodie this is my first OPAM for August.

I have news on the "Earl Grey Moment" quilt, I started to quilt it and decided I couldn't do it justice after doing all that embroidery so I am having it custom quilted but there is a waiting list so I hope to have it by Christmas..... fingers crossed.

Love the turtle Helen. I am quilting my first quilt on my quilting frame. Very daunting. Only going to stipple at this stage. Can't wait to see your quilt finished. You always do such beautiful embroidery.
Hugs....
