Turtles of Hope
Here is a photo of a turtle that several beaders have contributed to creating. We have decided to call him Crush. He is part of a project headed by Jena Tuntas ( http://www.atawhisper.com/) called the Turtles Of Hope. They are created to raffle off to benefit the American Cancer Society. I will post more information on how you can get tickets and the specifics about the project later (before tickets go on sale).
The head of this turtle was beaded by Aryd'ell in NC (you can find a link to her blog on the left), the lower left was beaded by Gale in NM, and we even had a beader from Portugal participate, Maria Teresa ( I will have to add her website to my list of links) And I beaded the tail end.
He is not completed yet, but I just had to share the progress as we are so close to completion. Without further ado- I present to you -- CRUSHHere is the the frame we will use.
I am so blessed by the hard work and diligence of the other beaders. They worked so hard on their quarters even when life was throwing them curve balls. Thanks to you all who made this beautiful piece of beadwork possible.
