crocheting a sort of sleve to go over the pringles can ...i left both the tale end and the head hollow so that you can hid things in those areis too. you can take the pringles can out and hid something in the tail then put the pringles can inside the sleve... the head is made sepreatly so you can lift the head up to take the top off the pringles can and put things in it and i left the head unstuffed so you can hid things in the head as well.... i dont know if its good enough to sell but some lucky boy or girl with get it for christmas....and now i have toget off here so i can work more on the graph so i can hopefuly start crochet it tomarro...lol

Well... I went on a trip down memory lane with my photos. It was actually fun ☺️ and found my crochet star wars toys. And my dolls I was working on around that time for fun when I had to be a couch potato.😘 1229171623.jpg 0817171457a.jpg 0616172136a.jpg thats the book I used

I'll try to find the picture of the dolls in my photos that I downloaded when I ran across them on my little trip down memory lane.These were really fun to do. I found a hardcover book that excited me so much I paid full price. The basic patterns inspired me. 0112171450a.jpg 0102171729a.jpg

They are so easy and the dolls too. And fun. I did them just to have something to do creative when I have to recoup. Even with the patterns you gotta think and use the patterns your way.πŸ€—

I don't have time to read all the replies on this thread, so this stuff may have already been posted. I'll read it all tonight.
I'm wondering what the experts think is going on in these videos. I have always felt like the two with the dogs are probably annoyed and stressed tortoises. I don't allow my dogs near our tortoise.

Unfortunately, the third video is on facebook. I'll try to find it elsewhere to post when I have time this evening, for anyone who can't watch it on the facebook link. That video is the, in my opinion, the only one that looks like it "could" be play. Then again, it could be the tortoise wanting that ball out of his area. I would love to hear opinions from the experienced folks here.

Well it doesn't really look like the tortoises were having fun at all. It just looks like they're trying to get that somewhat tortoise looking critter out of their territory. Also, those dogs were having to much fun around the tortoises. Dogs nip and play for fun with each other and will do the same with a tort. If a tort nips he's serious about it 😜 I don't have Facebook on my phone but I was able to watch the third one. You don't have to have the app to watch something someone has shared πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

OK. Time for an Intervention here. Tortoises do not play and especially not with dogs. Neither do they like Star Wars, Batman our Superman. Period.
