Turtle Tales

Ok, so last year I made a Happypotomus using Heidi Bears' fab pattern
 and have been badgered by my girls to make one for them ever since.






Last September I  raffled him off at our Macmillan Cancer Coffee morning...




 he raised over £60 but  it was goodbye Happy...



WELL, whilst I did enjoy hooking up Happy it was a LOT of work and I have to admit I wasn't exactly relishing the thought of repeating the job for a second let alone a third time....so imagine my glee when a friend pointed me towards this cute Hex-Turtle Pattern, especially since number 1 daughter has a 'thing' for all things 'tortle'...

'Jack Union'
So the Easter Holidays began in beautiful sunshine and I found myself looking after the kids whilst sitting in the garden with my hook...doesn't get much better! This little critter was surprisingly quick to hook up and he was finished within a few days.  I've now started on the Owl so let's hope the sun stays out...
