I Made Some Progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  I feel like I actually made some progress this week.  Of course, now I'm trying to frantically work on all 10 Turtle Trot pieces by Monday.  (Will I ever learn???)

Stable - Bothy Threads Monday SAL - I did more backstitching on the open door and wall.  Also did some green and started the dog.


Fall Welcome - Diane Arthurs - Saturday SAL - I finished her dress, started the squash and did more backstitching on the basket.

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 6 - Prairie Schooler - Sunday SAL - I started the geese and did more on the coat.

A chart for the furbabies.  You can read all about it HERE.  The purchases will be donated to animal rescue or animal shelters.  They surprised me with a skein of floss.

I had watched Thoeria stitch this design.  When she finished it, she was kind enough to send it to me.  Thank you Thoeria.  Go check out her awesome stitching.

Justine won a giveaway on a blog.  The winner had to pick someone else to send the prize to.  And, she picked me.  I got these two great charts.  Thank you Justine.  Go check out more awesome stitching.

This was my very first cross stitch piece back in the mid 80's.  Oh how horrible I thought counted cross stitch was.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Great progress on the SALs, Linda! Don't stress about stitching all 10 for the TT. You still have 5 days, 2 per day!

Fall Welcome looks so good! How nice that you got these new charts!

Your first cross stitch is so funny! Great job!

Great progress, Linda!! I am not sure whether I will be stitching on all 10 this time because I got hooked to one and trying to stitch more on that.

Me encanta el punto cruz. El primer cuadro quedará hermoso. Yo lo dejé por temas de salud, pero tengo muchas ganas de bordar de nuevo. A ver si lo consigo.
