Tony the Turtle


 Happy Saturday everyone. I have had a great day. For the first time since we moved I haven't had to get up and go somewhere or do something. I did get up and go somewhere, but I didn't have to. Lol. I had no plans today. I went shopping :) then I got to stay home and work on projects while watching the Olympics. I love the Olympics and am shamelessly addicted to them. I watch whatever sport is on and get really in to the excitement of the whole thing. I also love England and spent time there when I was 18, 19 and 20. One of my favorite places. We are also having a much needed break in the heatwave that has plagued most of the country. It is rainy and about 75F right now. I am loving today.
  I work in a daycare, I spend my days with eight babies and (thankfully) another adult. I love those crazy little babies and have been spending the last couple of weeks trying to make the nursery over a bit. I will have to take photos at work sometime in the next few weeks. I have been working on this guy all week. I didn't have a pattern and was kind of winging it the whole way. I didn't  get the pillow for the middle of it until Thursday. Here is Tony the Turtle.
Here he is underneath.
Here is his face.
I think my little babies will like him, do you?
 I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. I will talk to everyone tomorrow for my Year Of Projects post. :)

P.S. I wanted to mention this giveaway. Amanda seems like a lot of fun. I just popped over to her blog and joined right away.


  1. Hello Kashi,
    I am your newest follower
    I've just left a reply to your comment on my latest post but I didn't realise you had also mentioned my giveaway here on your blog so that have another entry to the giveaway :-)
    I absolutely love TONY THE TURTLE and his sleepy grin. What sort of yarn did you use....looks like DK?

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

    1. Thanks Amanda,
      I used worsted wt. cotton. It is Peaches & Creme. The bottom and feet, tail and head are called Sunshine and the top is from a huge cone called Kaleidescope. Are you able to get the same kinds of yarn in Spain that we get here. I know there is some gorgeous stuff made there. I love to see what is available in other countries. If you ever need any yarn from here I would be happy to send it to you.

  2. I'm having the same kind of day.. no appointments or meetings or even having to go swimming. I'm just hanging out catching up on blog stuff. I just know your babies will *LOVE* the turtle!! Nice of you to make something for them. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
