Timmy the Turtle

Standard

I had a lovely day with my lovely friend Helen yesterday. We watched kids films, chatted, ate chocolate and crocheted – bliss! I started on a pattern I found here at Little Muggles and managed to finish him off this afternoon.

He was a little shy to begin with, but soon came out to say hello.

He was fascinated by the plant, from the roots…

..to the flowers.

He thought the leaves were very tasty.

Isn’t he a cutie? I decided to call him Timmy and I already have plans for a girl turtle to keep him company – any suggestions for girl turtle names will be most welcome πŸ™‚

  1. Perhaps you can crochet the shell in purple or pink and then attach a button on the head…she would look really cute!

  2. Timmy is very cute!! How about Tallulah for his sister? (Although Tamara is good too – maybe Timmy needs two sisters?) That last photo is my favorite I think πŸ™‚ Happy hooking! Helen

    • Thank you πŸ™‚ Even though I haven’t finished the girl yet I’ve already been thinking ahead – I might try making some smaller ones and having a whole family! Watch this space…
