Keni's teacher has a turtle, well actually a tortoise that lives in the classroom and goes home on weekends and holidays. The kids take turns taking care of her. So I made this little guy for Keni to take to her teacher tomorrow. It has a 3 liter soda bottle cap inside with some stuffing. Just got the idea last night and had to give it a try and I think it turned out pretty cute. I can see a lady bug coming soon!

We have had such nice weather, around 80 all week. Well things have changed today. It started out nice but now the wind is blowing and the sky is getting over cast. Suppose to rain again! They say today, tomorrow and Saturday. We really need the rain but I was getting pretty used to the nice weather.

Well I am off to work on some coasters. Hugs, Cindy


  1. Oh how cute!!! Cindy - you do come up with some great patterns. Love it!!
    This reminds me of the solar turtle that we have out by our pool. It was my brother's and when he passed away - I told my family that I wanted that turtle. Every evening, I look out there and see it all lite up and it just gives me a nice warm feeling.
    Smiles, Joanne

  2. Joanne, my sister bought me one of those solar turtles when we were in Calif. but I guess the cold weather does not go well with the glass covering it as it broke out. Really upset me. I loved seeing him lit up. hugs cindy
