I tried to post these last night, my browser had a hissy fit, so I had one too and went too bed.

I discovered Josie’s blog Dilly Dimple, after she discovered mine, and whilst reading I spotted a little turtle friend.  I knew she was a Henrietta Turtle from the pattern by Heather Bailey, and I was well, turning all shades of blue mixed with yellow.  So last night, after my mediocre attempts at quilting (see previous post), I decided I needed to add it to it with some mediocre attempts at softies.

Here are my two new friends.

Henrietta is not as neat and tidy as she could be and I will make another one (or maybe 7) but this is such a lovely design, that even my attempt is cool and I quite adore her.

She is donning the latest handmade felt corsage by Qski’s Emporium and a grandmother’s flower garden Shell from the fabulous fabric by Rosalie Quinlan. She was not sure if her shell looked too big in the first photo, so we took another one, to find her best angle.
