    a turtle for a one year old's birthday

    We are honorary great grandparents to little Gia (Gianna) and watched her mother grow up next door to us many years ago. Now she is married and her hubby, her and baby are in Alaska, as he serves in the coast guard. I want to declare I will never ever ever ever ever ever.....knit this turtle again. GIGGLING. It came out of a very old knitting toys book I bought and what her mother picked out for Gia for her birthday. I hope you enjoy it. It is so ugly it is almost cute. (Laughing at my silly self)

    Well my 15 yr old loves it and wonders if you have a pattern.She likes to knit/crochet. Kind of like a pillow pet. It looks huge on the pictures. Something to wrestle with, hug, drag around and sleep on. Great!

    I think you should be proud of that turtle: they live a hundred years you know!

    thanks so much for taking time to notice the turtle. I sure hope baby Gia will enjoy it for some time to come. I appreciate your comments. Big hugs to all.

    Look at the smile on his/her face. It's happy to be here and a part of your life. I am sure your honorary GGD will love it and play with it for years to come.
