I had planned for long to draw a sea turtle from a reference photo of lisilk@wetcanvas and the opportunity to do so came along as I signed up for a paint -a-theme swap where was of the theme was "sea turtle". The titles are fascinating.
The last swap I participated in on www.atcsforall.com is a advanced textile swap. I made two (average) patchwork cards, but then I had the idea of this funny Xmas tree with Zetti legs. My husband liked it so I gave him and made a second one for the swap!
