Linda's Turtle Trot SAL June Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  You can read about the SAL on Claudette's blog  BAP Attack.  I managed to work on all 12 again this month.  Actually the last 2 weeks and 7 of them in the last 2 days.  I also kept up with my SAL's.  However, I haven't started working on YOTA - Bothy Threads cut-thru North Pole House.   As I've said a hundred times, if I spent less time on this computer I could sure get a lot more stitching done.  (you can click on any pictures to enlarge)

1.  Cat Lessons - Lizzie Kate - did another phrase and the bird and branch


2.  The Old West - Little House Needleworks - the Alamo has a fence


3.  Autumn Alphabet - Lizzie Kate - did the letter E


4.  Blue Bird Floral - Diane Arthurs - started the light blue in the border


5.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - the snowman has a rabbit friend


6.  Fredericka - Carriage House Samplings - started the flower


7.  Happy Camper - Diane Arthurs - did the dark blue water and the bird


8.  Summer Season - Sandra Cozzolino - finished summer


9.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - did the next color in her tail


10.  Crabby All Year - Raise the Roof - outlined the March square


11.  Christmas Village - Prairie Schooler - added 4 more trees  (I need some help with this one.  I love her designs but she tends to use blah, drab colors.  I am thinking of doing the other houses in different colors.  Maybe blue, yellow, green, gold, etc.  Tell me what you think)



12.  January Sampler - Waxing Moon Designs - did another strand in the banner


Thanks for looking.    Linda

How great that you managed to stitch on all your Turtle Trot projects! They will all slowly trot to a finish some day! Good idea to stitch brighter colored houses on the PS Christmas Village. Summer Season and Happy Camper are my favorites this time!

Fabulous progress. I love Christmas Village - the colours will work once it is all done.

Lynn said...

If the computer didn't take you away from stitching, how could the rest of us keep up? ;)

Beautiful progress! Seeing all of your stitching makes me think about starting a rotation instead of trying to work on one project at a time.

Beautiful progress! I especially love Fredericka, for some reason. About the Christmas Village - you should use whatever colors you like! If you're not happy with the color choices on the chart, make it your own. :D

Grit said...

Wow, so wonderful sticking. All of them are so beautiful.

Wonderful work!

Gorgeous stitching, my dear - love the idea of colours for the houses - maybe blues and golds?

Brigitte said...

Ahhh, Linda, so many great progress pictures. And so many designs that I really love.
When I start a PS piece I always wonder if all these colours aren't too dark or too brown etc. And in the end I always love the result. But I think you should go with what you really like as a colour combo. Why not add some colour?

Mouse said...

ohhh well done on keeping up with everything :) re the PS ... try a floss toss against the colours you have and see if you like them .. may be a dusky blue and a red ?? love mouse xxxxx

So much progress Linda, I am impressed ! I as usual seem to have lost my stitching bug, same last year so I think it may be seasonal lol. I am really enjoying looking at the progress your making on your pieces though.
