Suzy's Zoo Turtle

I have three different Suzy's Zoo booklets for cross stitch. They are some of my oldest charts. I can't believe how often I've turned to them for cutesy designs, especially for baby samplers. This little turtle (I think he's officially named 'Corky') is not for a baby, but I thought he made a sweet birthday card. And I had more fun with cutting out my own opening, this time an oval. He's stitched on a scrap of hand-dyed Aida. Those scraps come in very handy.

What a sweet little card, Annie! I used to love Suzy's Zoo, coincidentally right around the time that my oldest was born. I think that had something to do with it. ;)

Hi: Corky is soooo cute! Could you please e-mail me with the publisher of those Suzy's Zoo booklets and their titles? I'd like to go on a quest to find them! Thank you *very* much!

Cute little guy!
I like turtles and have a small collection of figures.
I couldn't tell that this is from Suzy's zoo. I thought they all have much more backstitching.
