The turtle moved

Have you ever seen one of your favorite authors in the whole world next to something you made for them? Someone whose books have made you laugh out loud no matter how bleak the world had become? Someone who had crafted something that always brought you joy, even when your heart was shattered? If so, you know how I feel today.

I made one, wee square, the turtle from Barbara Walker's treasuries. Thanks to an amazing amount of hard work and incredible talent on her part & all those who participated, Shirley presented the Pratchgan to our PTerry. I hope so much it keeps him warm and brings him a even fraction of the joy he's brought all of us. Read all about it on her blog, Ramblings of a Yarn Junkie.

To see some of the squares in detail, check out the Flickr group, or if you're on Ravelry, start with Shirley's project page.

This has been the coolest (& biggest & longest!) project I've ever participated in. It's been brilliant from start to finish - AMKG rocks!
