Linda's Turtle Trot SAL April Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  It's turtle trot time.  This is where we pick 10 projects and stitch on as many as we can each month and post an update on the 10th.  This is being hosted by Claudette of BAP attack.  You can see who else is turtle trotting HERE.  I did manage to work on all 10 this month, but barely.

1.  Mitten Friends - Diane Arthurs - did a little on the snowman's hat

2.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - finish #5 (I am stitching the whole set on one piece of fabric, but am counting each one as a finish.)

3.  Disney Heroes #16 - Alina's X Stitch - filled in some of the holes

4.  Happy Camper - Diane Arthurs - started the fishing pole and basket and did more grass

5.  Summer Season - Sandra Cozzolino - stitched some of the gray and white on the banner

6.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - stitched her top and part of her arm

7.  Dog Lessons for People - Lizzie Kate - added some words

8.  Autumn Season - Sandra Cozzolino - stitched September

9.  Spring Alphabet - Lizzie Kate - started the R and S squares

10.  March Sampler - Waxing Moon Designs - started the border

Thanks for looking.  Linda

Hi Blogger Friends.  It's time for the Year of the Acronym.  It is being hosted by Pull the Other Thread and you can read all about it HERE.

This is Bothy Threads cut-thru North Pole House.  I'm ashamed to even show the very tiny amount of stitching that I got done.  I managed to stitch the green wall and pink wallpaper.

TUSAL and Updates

Hi Blogger Friends.  I sure hope that your not all getting tired of seeing the same pictures every week.  I think I need to dig out some different ones and work on them during the month.
I have several gals leaving comments that are a no reply.  I just wanted to say thank you to them and all of you for visiting my blog and leaving such nice comments.

Cut-thru Stable - I am very, very happy with the progress I made on this yesterday.  I did the backstitching from the blue Tack bucket, red bucket, rope and hay across to the grain sacks.  I also got quite a bit of stitching done on the bottom.

Fall Welcome - Diane Arthurs - only backstitched Fall and some on the basket

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 6 - Prairie Schooler - only did some of the green

My ORTS for the month
Are you wondering what a Totally Useless Stitch-a-long is.  You can read all about it on Daffycat's Blog.

Thanks for looking.    Linda

Hi Blogger Friends.  I FINALLY finished the stitching on page 3 of the Stable and am almost done with the backstitch on that page.  Hoooorayy!!!!

Several people have mentioned that I am almost done.  Sure wish I was.  I wanted to be done by April 1. That would make it one year.  Not stitching on it for 2 months put me behind.
If you look at the lower left side - there are 16 rows to get to the bottom and 200 rows across.  I think I still have a ways to go.  At least I am enjoying stitching on it again.

Fall Welcome - Diane Arthurs - did the black bird

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 6 - Prairie Schooler - worked on the two geese

Thanks for looking.  Linda
