I cannot remember when I first actually started this.  I know it was in February when I got the request to make our granddaughter a 'turtle.'  It had to sit and simmer in my mind...and then I had to sketch it out and decide how to make it.  Lorelei is happy with it.  I have mixed feelings about it...I think that is why it took me so long to finish it.

Edited to add:  This is not full sized quilt.  I did not think to tell but it is a wall hanging.  I am not even sure of the size...around 16 inches wide and maybe 18 inches up long.

We had a lot of rain/overcast days this past week.  The coming week is supposed to be sunny and bright every day, with temps near 90°F some days.  I look forward to the warm days and sitting on the porch to read a few minutes sometimes.

I saw that my hibisus are both coming up.  I am very relieved.  My red one is much farther along than the pink one.  I really was afraid the pink one was not going to pop up.   I need to pull more weeds, and need to get some tomato plants to go in my pots.  I look forward to have a fresh, home-grown tomato to eat one more time.  


I have to include a pic of Delta and Copper...they are taking care of Lorelei when she is spending time with her Aunt.  

I tried to leave a youtube short, but I cannot find a way to link to only mine.  And depending on when I click on the link they provide there are things I just don't like to see at all.  It is a video of the squirrel coming to me.  If I figure it out, I will post it later.


  1. Happy Mother's day.
    Your turtle is lovely. I like the fabric you chose.

    I enjoyed those shot video clips, especially the lady gave her life to God and who bought the shirt for a perfect stranger. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I'm envious of your warm weather. Sitting out on the porch is one of my favourite thing to do too. I haven't got my tomato plants yet but soon I will. Like you I'm looking forward to those delicious vine ripened tomatoes.

  3. I forgot to say that I hope you had a good Mother's Day.

  4. I have never seen a quilt like this. It is stunning. You even got the proportions right!

  5. With a the changes with Google/YouTube/blogger...I'm not surprised. Love the turtle wall hanging.
    Sweet companions too!!

  6. Hello,
    I love the turtle, a pretty wall hanging. The dogs are my favorite, very cute. Have a great day and a happy new week!

  7. I love Lorelie and the dogs OF COURSE and the turtle is adorable. I can't even draw one, much less created one from material. save the video to your computer drive. I email mine to myself from my phone, download to drive in computer, them upload video in blog post, not as a photo but using video up load.

  8. I like the wall hanging. It looks like it would have been very complicated to do.
    How sweet that Delta and Copper are taking care of Lorelei.

  9. What a cute wall hanging. I bet she loved it.
    Everyone is getting so big!!! Such a sweet pic.
    Been weeding and pulling a lot around here. SO much to do.

  10. I love the wall hanging. Great colour choices!

  11. I love the turtle wall hanging! It's fun to make wall hangings and they make great gifts. Your weather is similar to ours. It was cold and rainy all last week and now hot and in the 90s this week. We've missed out on spring once again!

  12. I think the turtle quilt hanging turned out great. NICE job.

  13. It's a lovely looking quilt Rose, and the photo of Lorelei with the pups is very cute. We have had some rainy days here too but I'm glad that the sun is shining today.

  14. Love the turtle! Not sure why you have mixed feelings, the design and fabrics are great.

  15. Well, I think you did great on the quilt! I love it.

  16. love the turtle - you done good on nutting that out - and the recipient is happy...

  17. home-grown tomatoes taste much better than what we get from the stores.
