An intrepid adventurer

I should have known that my little green friend would be a feisty fellow................
(I mean, look who designed him)


I just didn't expect him to be such an intrepid adventurer.

After out-staring the fiercest of animals


until he had him tamed

he then decided a spot of tree climbing was in order

although I think he began to wish he hadn't looked down at this point.

He then jumped into my bag and came up to the allotment where he found as many things to climb as possible

And when he'd run out of things to climb he decided to go and chat with the tadpoles (yay my very first tadpoles!!!!) and I had to grab his foot to stop him falling in.

But, on reflection, it's probably a VERY good thing that he is so brave and adventurous, considering where he's going now....................................



Oh yes, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ally!

Love you really!

And your present is only late because it is taking him so very long to crawl down south!
;o) xxxxx


P.S. Jodie - this pattern is FABULOUS! You are a complete star!

Dang, he's cute! But a good thing he's migrating - I would fear for your allotment veggies otherwise.

I think you need to be stitching another one as you seem to be having so much fun together! He is adorable as are all of your pictures - especially the one of him and bunny sitting side by side. Too sweet for words :0)

Love the new little chap. What a clever young tortoise he is. I also really love the bean wigwam thingy - my beans are just growing up straight poles in a line. Well, they will be when I get them planted...
