Tortoise Pieces

PICT9932
ATT00007

I finally forced myself to return to the Patchwork Tortoise this week when I realized that it would be really fun to put the finished product in Heather's Easter basket instead of just giving it to her "whenever" I got around to finishing it.

I finished the patches last night and they are currently blocking (second photo). If it isn't too painful to sew this thing together I could see myself getting it done for Sunday. :-)

I still really like the look of the Hempathy yarn and it seemed to bend to my will pretty well when I was blocking it. And I made it on size 1 needles, so it is hard to image that the fabric could be any tighter...so I'm not worried about the stuffing coming through.
