We found this beautiful beastie walking down the sidewalk on our street, far from any water. So we scooped him up and gave him a ride out to Brushy Creek. We named him Hector and wished him a happy, healthy life before Matt turned toward the water and tossed him in. I was shocked that he didn’t just put Hector near the water and let him decide whether to go in, and I said so. Matt blanched when he realized that he had just assumed that Hector swam. We quickly researched what kind of turtle he was and were greatly relieved to learn that he was a red-eared slider. Thank goodness, they’re strong swimmers!
The patterned papers are from the Pebbles Lakeside 6×6 paper pad. I cut out the title on my Silhouette, and I hand stitched the zigzag stitch down the center.
