Cabochon Turtles


The weekend and this week have been busy. I've been beading cabochons for my friend Thearica's shop...and put 34 of them into the mail this morning. I forgot to get a photo before closing the box(...bad blogger, bad blogger) but, in my defense...it was before 6 a.m. and I was trying to get the inventory sheet and package ready to mail before Brady woke up. You'll have to keep a watch at her shop, crazyquiltsupplies to see when they show up on her site for sale.
Now, I'm working on beading up some turtles..aren't these cute?!
I had forgotten about doing some...but putting the other supplies away reminded me.
 
 
This little turtle was done a couple of years ago...and he was in one of the supply drawers. My muse decided she wanted to bead just a little more...so I'm working some up for a few friends.
Hope you are having a super day...and that the sun is shining!

Those turtles are beyond adorable!! I once had a really cute little turtle brooch (probably back in the early 70's)- it's long gone and seeing these makes me wish I still had it. Perfect addition to a CQ!!

these are very nice. I am taking part in a RR and the piece that arrive yesterday was under the sea, scratched my head then thought a turtle, wish I had seen this blog before I stitched mine as I would have tried a beaded one, never mind mine is very simple done in back stitch. Since I have started on the patchwork the embroidery has taken second place and been somewhat neglected apart from what I do on the crazy blocks

Oh my - the turtles are so cute. I may just have to make myself one. One of my favourite things to do when I was a kid was to play in my Mom's button box. And there was a turtle brooch in there for some reason. Its head used to move and it was my favourite thing in the box. Never did find out what happened to it.
