Linda's Turtle Trot SAL July Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  It's turtle trot time.  This is where we pick 10 projects and stitch on as many as we can each month and post a before and after picture on the 10th.  This is being hosted by Claudette of BAP Attack.  You can see who else is turtle trotting HERE.
Geez, I'm getting worse instead of better about working on these.  (I really do enjoy stitching on them.)  I worked on 5 today, 4 yesterday and 1 a few days ago.

1.  Mitten Friends - Diane Arthurs - I started the backstitch on the mitten.


2.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - I built another house.


3.  Disney Heroes #16 - Alina's XStitch - I did 45 stitches.  YEAH!!!  If you look really close, you can see some blue stitches.


4.  Happy Camper - Diane Arthurs - I did some green, finished the fishing pole and basket and did the fish.  I am in a challenge on facebook to pick one WIP or UFO and finish it by July 23rd.  It started two weeks ago.  I picked this one but I don't think I will get it done.


5.  Summer Season - Sandra Cozzolino - Finished the words.


6.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - Yeah!  I finally finished her hair on the right side.


7.  Dog Lessons for People - Lizzie Kate - I added one word.


8.  Autumn Season - Sandra Cozzolino - I did more on the border.


9.  Spring Alphabet - Lizzie Kate - Stitched the basket and eggs.


10. March Sampler - Waxing Moon Designs - I filled in the shamrocks.


You can click on the pics to enlarge.

I finally finished organizing the tubs of cross stitch kits.  I still have several other things to organize but its to hot right now.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Great progress. You did better than me. I have not worked on any of my Turtle Trot projects since my last TT post. Too busy starting new projects and finishing some charity stitching.

They look great!! You manage to stitch on so many projects. I haven't posted this month as there isn't much progress but I am done with one which I will be sharing very soon.

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

You made me laugh at the frantic stitching, five projects in one day! That's some rotation.

I do the same at the end of the month, try to stitch something on each of the challenge pieces.

Anne said...

Everything is looking great but wow...5 projects in one day!! That's awesome!!

Shebafudge said...

They are all looking great! I love to see what you are stitching but 5 projects in one day must have been fun. :)

Sally said...

Wonderful progress Linda. I really enjoy seeing what you are working on.

SoCal Debbie said...

Wow! You're a super-stitcher, Linda! You always get something done on all 10 of your Turtle Trot WIPs every month! Maybe some day I will too. Summer Season looks like it's almost done!

Anna van Schurman said...

Good progress, Linda. Good luck with the organizing. That always eludes me! LOL

Kaisievic said...

I see lots of progress here, Linda. It is funny to hear you say that it is too hot as it is freezing in Melbourne at the moment - lol!

stitchersanon said...

omgosh, I cant believe you are working on so many! They are all amazing but I would be stressed and forget what I was stitching on lol. Maybe next year I will take part....but wow. Gorgeous projects!

Hi Linda,
Just in case you don't get a chance to check back on my blog, here's the answer to your blanket question:
I used the pattern found here:
http://fantaisiesdeflo.canalblog.com/archives/2011/10/13/22328113.html
She changed colors every row for hers. Because I kept mine the same, I had to chain one, turn, slip stitch into the three double crochets and the turning chain before starting each new row. I hope that makes sense!

Oh you know I love that mermaid! And the hair is the best part!
