Turtle finish

There is some unusual wildlife in my garden today. I have finished my turtle pincushion from The Simple Life. Unfortunately, I think he is too cute to stick pins in. Apart from turning and stuffing the small pieces it was quite a fun project, and excellent for using up small scraps of a favourite fabric.

I have almost finished positioning the border on the Hexagon Star quilt, so that might be tonight's job. Then it just needs to be appliquéd on, fingers crossed that it doesn't move too much.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

  1. He is just the cutest. Don't think I could put a pin in him either. Have you thought about ironing on some Visofix strips to the back of the strips then ironing them in place to help stop the movement when you sew them down? This top is going to look amazing when finished. hugs

  11. I must concur with the others, very cute. Of course you can stick pins into it. Think of it as acupuncture - you will actually be helping him!
    Lovely work Susan, and I am sure that the hexagons are finished by now?
