Thanks everyone! This actually came about when I took a few to a new customer....she ordered one with her granddaughter's name and when she saw that, wanted one for her grandson. I made a few of champygirls and took them to her, she bought 10 of the butterflies and flowers....and asked if I could make a turtle. So I came home and started on it right away. Now my husband wants a few little turtles for one of his magic tricks! I'll be busy :crocheting...found a craft fair I'm going to do in November, my first one ever!
