Tiny Turtle

gathering

tickle me turtles

circle the shells

marching, marching, marching

king of the mountain

We come in peace...

Where have all the daffodils gone?

    1. Not too bad. Sewing the legs on is the hardest part. Thanks, Catsynth!

    1. Are they going to chase away the chocolate so it doesn't tempt me anymore?!? :) Gotta put those girl scout cookies out of sight! Or maybe the turtles will eat them so I won't be tempted!

  6. I especially like the turtle totem with Mama Stone at the base. Also the long-necked green guy who seems to be the lookout turtle.

    P.S. If I didn't know how busy you are, I'd think you sat around playing with yarn and cameras all day! :)

    1. Almost all day, Sue... :) Or, well, all night. Ha ha!

      My favorite shot is all the turtles on the rocks before I got to put them outside because the snow finally melted!

    1. I don't know if I can shape a crocheted rock into a goat, Marigold, but I guess it's worth a try, with short legs, maybe... :)

    1. Thank you, Princessquiltsalot! Yes, there is a pattern, and it will be available next Monday. It will be in this year's snowflake pattern booklet to raise money for the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

    1. Me, too, Sam! Even in real life. I see them sometimes on the bike path, and I always have to stop and take a picture. Or 20...

  13. Is there a link where we can purchase these annual booklets with these otherwise unpublished patterns? My grand-daughter would absolutely slip out for the turtles, and I am on a mission to recreate every single snowflake pattern you've designed for myself and my 5 girls! And likely a set for my grand-daughter too (albeit, at 4, we have some time before we're too too worried about setting her up with Christmas decorations!). Thanks!

    1. Hello, Unknown. Yes, typically there is a link to donate to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, but they've closed out their books for the year. I have emailed them to ask if there is any way I can register so we can set up a new fundraising page before January, and I will update each of the actual booklet posts once I have an answer.

      That sounds like quite the goal... to make seven of each snowflake! I have tried twice to make one of each for special projects, and I didn't make it all the way through the list either time! So good luck to you, and I hope you will post photos! I can't wait to see!
