Linda's Turtle Trot SAL August Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  It's Turtle Trot time.  We pick 10 projects to work on for the month and post a before and after pic on the 10th of the month.  This is being hosted by Claudette of BAP Attack.  You can read all about it HERE.  Stop by and see who else is trotting.
I'm pretty excited this month.  I actually managed to put more than 50 stitches in them.

1.  Mitten Friends - Diane Arthurs - I stitched the brown on the mitten.


2.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - Did another strand on the border and then it started snowing.


3.  Disney Heroe's #16 - Alina's XStitch - So excited - I did about 250 stitches.


4.  Happy Camper - Diane Arthurs - IT'S FINISHED
Happy Camper - Diane Arthurs - Imaginating
14ct White Aida
Started 2-26-12
Finished 8-10-14

5.  Summer Season - Sandra Cozzolino - I did more on the banner.


6.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - I finished her arm.


7.  Dog Lessons for People - Lizzie Kate - I actually finished 2 rows.


8.  Autumn Season - Sandra Cozzolino - I started stitching Autumn.


9.  Spring Alphabet - Lizzie Kate - Did the umbrella and boots.


10. March Sampler - Waxing Moon Designs - I stitched the top line and March.


I so love this SAL and am already thinking about 10 projects for next year.  I would really like to get all of these done this year (except Disney) that's going to take me a hundred years.
I'm also doing the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2015.  I will be starting 31 projects in January and would sure like to get some done by the end of the year.

Thanks for looking.     I really appreciate your comments.     Linda

Smoking needles! You've made great progress this month.

Congratulations on the Happy Dance too, You've really worked hard on that one. Did you watch a film while stitching all the green? It does make the fill-in stitching go faster.
