First Finish For 2016

My first finish for 2016 is this cute turtle 
for Austin's girlfriend, Paris.
Austin told me Paris loves turtles and when I showed him this pattern, he thought it was perfect. Austin took a photo of her room for me and I tried to match the colours of her doona. It was a belated birthday present (her birthday was mid December). I just couldn't find anything that appealed to me so I told her I would make something but she would have to wait a little. Paris was very happy when she got it last night so hopefully the wait was worth it.
Miss Molly was happy too!
