Just saw this! Adorable! I love turtles. :turtle I started a turtle collection for my youngest son when he was a toddler as he was facinated with them -- it all started with the Teenage Ninja Turtles and went from there. I have to make an afghan from these for him, even though he is now 18! :D There is still a little boy in him and I hope there always will be!

Thank You
so much for generously sharing your creativeness with us!
