An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
I like the top picture - more tortoisey than the bottom one.
How creative! Whichever version you choose, I think I'll like them. I agree with Maureen... the top one looks more tortoisey.
Tortoise socks! What fun! I know I'm in the midst of Christmas but those bottom ones would make great snowflakes too.
I like the bottom one, Hope you get more votes, cause this doesn't help!
Looks like you are trying to show what is on each scute which is differen for different species. Maybe it would look more like a turtle or tortoise if it was the shape of the scute that was portrayed. (I used to have and breed water turtles, so I love this idea!). If you need help with publishing your patterns, I have some experience and would happily share it.
The top swatch looks like an owl all it needs is a month in the middle, I like both swatches, both have great patternsMargaret
Very very interesting trials !I would go with the lower one, with one observation : if you could make the diagonals a st or 2 longer , so that the whole appears like more of a mesh, rather than separate entities ? Eager to see your final version :-)
