Hubby's Father's Day gift









Though hubby is not my father , he is the loving father of our children and because of that, I too like to gift him on this special day.
He loves turtles so I was lucky enough to find this wonderful pattern here.
I made him the wall hanging for his office, a coaster for his cup, a kitchen towel with 4 turtles to represent us and 2 potholders since he enjoys cooking too.
The picture with the small turle on the back , is the label.
I hope all the fathers of my cyber friends have a blessed day.

The turtles are too cute and you chose wonderful fabrics. Maybe your hubby will want to cook more since he has new pot holders.

I did see those fantastic turtles last time I visited your blog, but didn't leave a comment. So I decided to do so today, because the turtles look amasing.
This week's flower is pretty too
