These are cute (I guess):
But, a few changes, 
and we have this:

I made this the other day. 
I really didn't like it at first:

But, I wasn't worried.
A few chops, a little sewing,
and we have metamorphosis!

Isn't change good (sometimes?)

Want to know how I did it?

That is quite a change! Turning the squares on their points really makes them stand out!

I love your hand dyes - I've always been a sucker for turquoise and those are lovely shades.

Thanks Jr, I tend to like turquoise as well. If you look at my thread collection, I have a bunch, both on the green end and the blue. But, I think blue type turquoise are my favorite!

Sarah, I thought you were a follower already. Glad you are here :)

Thanks, Pat! Not my normal style. But, still fun to make.
