Linda's Turtle Trot SAL November 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.

1.  Cat Lessons - Lizzie Kate - (Finish 18)

14ct Summer Khaki
Started 1-17-12
Finished 11-1-13





2.  The Old West - Little House Needleworks - started the border on the bottom







3.  Blue Bird Floral - Diane Arthurs - worked on the pink square



4.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - added the owl and more snow




5.  Fredericka - Carriage House Samplings - added a squirrel and another key



6.  Happy Camper - Diane Arthurs - did the sun, the rest of the trees and started the endless grass



7.  Summer Season - Sandra Cozzolino - really happy with how much I got done on this one since it was all starting and stopping - the vines are done as are the flowers on top and bottom




8.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - did more of her fin and started her hair (She has a whole lotta hair)




9.  Crabby All Year - Raise the Roof - I decided not to do this one anymore.  It's big and I don't want to buy all the buttons.  I cut out the part that was stitched and saved the rest of the fabric.

10.  January Sampler - Waxing Moon Designs - did a little bit on the house and the two green trees need white and another strand in the top banner




Yeah!!!  I have now finished 3 and tossed 2.  I am so looking forward to next years SAL and am having a hard time deciding which ones that I want to add in.  See, the more I finish the more new ones I can add in.

I would love to finish 3 or 4 more of these this year, but I know I am only dreaming.  I think I can finish one or maybe two.  How about voting for which one or two that I should try and finish this year.

Thanks for looking.  Linda     (you can click on the pics to enlarge)

Congratulations on ANOTHER finish! You're having a great stitching year for sure! You really got a lot done on all of them, especially Cat Lessons!

I vote for Summer Season to be the next finish. The colors are gorgeous!

Katie said...

Lots of great stitching! I vote for Happy Camper cause I love camping. I have it as well in my stash. It's so funny how much we have in common when it comes to our stitching.

Hats off to you, Linda!! You always manage lot of stitching. Congratulations on the finish!! :) I love the Diane Arthur's projects you are working on and my vote goes to Mermaid. I guess once you are done with those hairs, then it's almost done. Also, I think you might complete summer season too...looks like that's almost done too.
Wish you good luck to complete as many as you want to:)

Wow Linda what amazing progress! I am always blown away by the number of projects you manage to keep making progress on every month. I vote for January as I love the blues in the border and I think the whole project is so atmospheric.
