I've been collecting amigurumi patterns and decided it was time to do another one for my granddaughter. This one is Jacques the Sea Turtle (free pattern here).

I had a lot of fun making this one, because I'd only work on it when my granddaughter was here. She saw the whole process, but she's only 3 years old, so she was a little impatient. The moment I gave it to her, her face lit up with a big smile and seemed to make all the waiting worth it.

Thats a precious turtle! 

My grandmother was never very crafty, but it seems her friends were.  So I always received handmade things from her, made by her friends.  But that never mattered to me, I loved them just as much because someone worked hard on them with me in mind, and my gramma gave them to me.  Cheesy
