Linda's Turtle Trot SAL October Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  Well yippee!!!  I actually have been stitching on these for the last couple of weeks.  I'm proud to say that I made some decent progress on some of them.  You can read all about the Turtle Trot and see the other stitchers that are doing it at BAP Attack hosted by Claudette. 

I was already to post yesterday, but the camera wouldn't upload.  Happy to say that my awesome DH was able to fix it today.

1.  Cat Lessons - Lizzie Kate - did the cat and started the fish bowl


2.  The Old West - Little House Needleworks - here's a yippee!! - I finally finished the Alamo




 TA-DAH



3.  Autumn Alphabet - Lizzie Kate  (Finish 16)
14ct Green Marbled Aida
Started 1-10-12
Finished 10-13-13


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

5.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - did 2 strands of the white


6.  Fredericka - Carriage House Samplings - changed some of the colors and like it a lot better - finished her head and neck


7.  Happy Camper - Diane Arthurs - did the wood, mugs, watermelon and basket


8.  Summer Season - Sandra Cozzolino - started the flowers and vines


9.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - finished the pink in her tail


10.  Crabby All Year - Raise the Roof - another Yippee!! - started and finished March


11.  Christmas Village - Prairie Schooler - I hate stitching on this fabric.  It's sparkly and the holes are big and I just wasn't enjoying stitching it all.  So, I cut out the design and saved the rest of the fabric.  It might be okay for small ornaments.  I bought this chart several years ago on ebay and paid $48.00 for it.  I will sell it for that plus postage.

12.  January Sampler - Waxing Moon Designs - did the tree and started the house



Claudette is going to do this SAL again next year.  I stitch on these and think about what I want to add to it next year.


Thanks for looking.  Linda

What a great Turtle Trot post with so much progress! The kitty is so cute in Cat Lessons. The Alamo looks great. I just saw it in person the other day!

Congrats on another big finish! You certainly stitched a lot on Autumn Alphabet since the last update.

Happy Camper and Summer Season look wonderful, too. I really like the bright colors.

Yay, Linda! What a great progress report! And you finished Autumn Alphabet while it was still Autumn! If you are interested in passing on the chart let me know how much you'd like for it. I'd love to stitch it, too!
