One more turtle—in a somewhat abstract teneriffe center. The zigzag pattern created in the diamond stitch (a different colored thread was used for each direction) was a pleasant surprise, and seemed to add movement to the little turtle’s surrounding environment. This basket was donated to an auction to raise funds for a friend’s medical expenses; the winning bid was $200.
