As promised, here is Fred. I don't know why they look masculine to me, even tho I beaded them some lol.

I gave him light tiger eye beads for eyes. His house is covered in June bugs so he won't be going hungry in a while.

I tweaked the pattern some more and I think I like his house, not sure yet. I might make it a bit bigger. I like the tail and everything else. I might make do another version with a shorter house to see if I like that.

I did some beading all around him here and there. You can still use him as a pincushion.

Great artwork! These turtles look wonderful! Good work! As you have or haven't known I have a painting blog. If you aren't doing anything you could drop by anytime. Thanks!

Love the turtles! I did a snake pincushion that ate the tomato pincushion! Had the string with the strawberry hanging out of his mouth! Pin cusions are too much fun!
