Linda's Turtle Trot SAL May Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  Its Turtle Trot update time again.  You can read all about it HERE.  Well, I managed to work on all 13 again this month and sorta kept up with my SAL's. Last Thursday was my DH birthday.  I got up to an infection in my arm again.  Although, it is the first one in about 8 months.  So needless to say, I spent all day Thursday in bed and that threw my stitching schedule off.  I still had 5 to work on and I managed to work a little on all of them on Friday.  But, that messed up my SAL's.  I have worked on the Thursday one but missed Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Boo-hoo

1.  Cat Lessons - Lizzie Kate - added a word and a ball of yarn


2.  The Old West - Little House Needleworks - stitched on the Alamo


3.  Autumn Alphabet - Lizzie Kate - added B, K and R


4.  Blue Bird Floral - Diane Arthurs - finished the blue box


5.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - finished his coat and did his mittens


6.  Fredericka - Carriage House Samplings - added the wheat?


7.  Happy Camper - Diane Arthurs - stitched Happy


8.  Summer Season - Sandra Cozzolino - stitched on the word summer


9.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - added a fish


10.  Crabby All Year - Raise the Roof - added the lines in the glass

11.  Christmas Village - Prairie Schooler - stitched on the house


12.  January Sampler - Waxing Moon - stitched on the banner at top

TA-DAH  Finish 10

13.  Mississippi Riverboat - Little House Needleworks

 14ct Summer Khaki
Started 6-10
Finished 4-24-13


Thanks for looking.  Linda

Wow! So many beautiful projects, Linda. I have to say I'm partial to the January one by Waxing Moon. That was one of my all-time favorites (still don't have it framed, though!!)...

Lynn said...

Good for you on the finish!!! So what happens now? Do you frame it and display it or does it sit and marinate for a bit??

I'm so sorry to hear Linda that you have an infection, I hope its gone or nearly gone as it has been some while since you've had one. You've got a great amount done even with it, wow, well done. I'm loving all the stitched pieces and well done on the finish, another one clocked up for this year. There is no stopping you !
