Pets On Quilts Parade

Be sure to pop over to visit the big Pets on Quilts Show happening now at  Lily Pad Quilting.  It is always such a wonderful and creative event. 



This is the week to enter your quilts with pets and starting next week you will be able to vote on your favorites.  Everyone is welcome so join in on the fun and help to make the event another great success.

My entry this year is my egg mug rug and two of our new little hatchlings (#57).


Tortoises do nothing fast and hatching takes several days to complete.  The first day they pip their shell and poke their little snout out.


 During that day they absorb the yoke sac and then resume hatching out over the next day, eventually unfolding their shell and walking away from it.
