Linda's Turtle Trot SAL August Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  I barely managed to work on all 12 this month.  I stitched 3 this past Friday, 2 Saturday, 2 Sunday, 3 Monday and 2 today.  Kinda cutting it short wouldn't you say.  I was sorta bad this go around too.  I usually only do one strand in each one just so I can say I stitched on all of them.  (I cut my floss about 80" and take one and fold in half and do the loop start method.  I average about a hundred stitches per strand.)  This also seemed to be the month for trees and words/letters.  This time I did more on quiet a few of them.  Can you figure out which two got worked on today??  lol

1.  Cat Lessons - Lizzie Kate - added a word and some letters on the top row


2.  The Old West - Little House Needleworks - did the tree and the words


3.  Autumn Alphabet - Lizzie Kate - added A and Q


4.  Blue Bird Floral - Diane Arthurs - did a strand of light blue in the border


5.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - Mr. Snowman now has a nose, buttons and snow on his hat


6.  Fredericka - Carriage House Samplings - finished the flower petal


7.  Happy Camper - Diane Arthurs - added 4 trees


8.  Summer Season - Sandra Cozzolino - did the stars, lines and heart on the right


9.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - Myrna now has a starfish friend


10.  Crabby All Year - Raise the Roof - did the little circles on either side of the glass


11. Christmas Village - Prairie Schooler - added the brown tree


12.  January Sampler - Waxing Moon Designs - finished all the words


Thanks for looking.   Linda

Hurray! You made progress on all 12, even at the last minute and you made the deadline of the 13th!

I guess that you stitched Six Fat Men and Crabby All Year today. I love Happy Camper!

I'll post my Turtle Trot update tonight.

Great Progress on all of them. I would have a hard time working on so many different projects at once.
Congrats

Margaret said...

They're all great projects! I have no clue how you can rotate like you do. Amazing!

Tama said...

Great progress on all your WIPs. You have a great way to start a little on all your WIPs. My rotation is a different WIP each day, hopefully 3 strands on each WIP stitched on.
Happy stitching.

Great progress! Wow, I can really see the sparkle on the fabric you're using for the Christmas Village in that picture.

Amazing progress!!! I have been struggling along for 2 weeks on a small L*K traveling pattern! I am hanging my head in shame. Several of what you have posted are in my "to do" file. Sigh!

Preeti said...

Great progress, Linda!! You still managed to stitch on these many. This month, again I don't have any progress to show.

Barb said...

Nice pieces. Great job on them.
I did Wild West and that was a fun one to do. I think I need to find the Happy Camper one. My sister and her family love to camp and may be a good piece for me to do for them.

Great progress on all of them.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

That's an interesting way of making progress on each design! I'm more of a OAAT stitcher, I tend to love whatever piece it is and not want to stop!

Denise said...

Great Progress on all your projects, they look fabulous!
Happy Stitching

Deb said...

Love all your WIP 's! Great work! Have both LK's in my stash and have started bringing the LK's out for some fun stitching. Great work!

Pumpkin said...

I can't believe you worked on that many projects so close together. How did you keep your mind straight???? LOL! They all look great.

EvalinaMaria said...

Awesome progress on all, congratulations! And, Holly Molly, you're done with Halloween House and your 'Good Morning' looks way ahead of mine. I think I have to change my gears and speed up a little :)

Astri said...

So much progress Linda! I hope you can stitch outside and that your weahter is lovely. :-)

Anne said...

Amazing progress on all of your WIP's!! I really love the January Sampler and have been thinking of stitching it myself one day as it's my birthday month. I just learned how to do the loop method this year and am so happy to have learned!! Makes starting a stitch so easy!
