Sewing: Turkle the Turtle

Deep in the wilds of my backyard lives the ferocious Quiltus Turtleus, called Turkle by his friends.

His markings are wholly unique and set him apart from all other Quiltus Turtleus.

A canny camera person can get quite close to Turkle, just watch out for the super massively strong jaws!

Quiltus Turtleus are known for their pointy and exceptionally cute tails.

When forced to show his belly, Turkle will display a fierce purple leopard print, frighting off predators for fear of a badly dressed…oops, this a “G” rated blog!

Ancestry of the Quiltus Turtleus, decended from the Quiltus Buttericktus Family.

Happy crafting!

Paper Piecing: A little more Christmas

Lil’ St. Nick was such a hit that I had to give him some friends!  I hope you like Mrs. Claus and Santa’s Elf just as much.

While I’m here, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I rarely design a pattern with a final project in mind.   I draw whatever makes me happy and it ends up being wherever it needs to be.

Today, it’s Christmas!
