Tardy Turtle is making me tardy

The Tardy Turtle quilt is a little more labor intensive that I thought.  Piecing the curved paperpieced part of the shells to the background pieces has taken 2 days so far-I don't work 8 hour days:) I hand appliqued 4 heads and 3 1/2 shells on last night.  Still have to piece 2 turtles before I can put the back together-maybe I'll finish today-would like to have the back done by today (not borders-just the middle)

Yesterday I started sewing at 10:30 but by 11: 45 I was so tired I couldn't keep my eyes open.  Went in for a short nap and woke up 3 hours later with a kitty pile on top of me.  Not feeling good last night and went to bed early.  Feeling fine today.  Should be able to sew for more than an hour, but I really can't sew for more than 3 hours at the machine.  I am a slow quilter. A tardy Turtle.  This may be a self portrait.

Love the turtles, tardy or not.
I've got the cruddy cough that's going around and feel like I could sleep for a week. Stay well. :)

Your turtles are sweet! I can see why they take so long. Applique is time consuming.

You'll get there.

Really cute! Looks like a lot of fun. I think I would be smiling with each stitch.
