That is awesome of you! And what amazing little turtles, I love them all!

 

We used to see turtles all the time in Michigan (in fact, I would stop to rescue a turtle if it was on a busy road-- a lot). But I never saw one when we lived in Colorado.

 

I guess we have some desert tortoises out here (in Vegas) now, so I will hopefully see some in the summer. :turtle

I know I already posted here, but I have started one of these already, I just love them. Your BCA ones are probably my favorites. I just had to say again how cute they are. :P Our youngest son has already told me what colors he wants his turtle to be. :lol (I never said I was making them for him...) :P

YarnCat: As you can see in my avatar, this is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. I am also a BC survivor and just had my one year anniversary of being cancer free last October 2007. I am just so overwhelmed emotionally, and want to tell you what you are doing is absoulutely AWESOME. Early detection and a positive attitude are the keys to beating this ugly monster.

 

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU ARE DOING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:hug

That is a great idea and a very important message.

I just love your turtles, but this makes them even more special.
