Starts 7, 8 and 9 of DSDUCJFC - Turtle Trot SAL - YOTA SAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  This is a combination post.  First up are my last 3 days of starts for Debbie's challenge.

Day 7 - Los Angeles - tinymodernist

Day 8 - Pretty Little Barcelona - Satsuma Street - I love the colors in this one

Day 9 - Flip-it - Santa - Lizzie Kate


It's Turtle Trot time.  This is a SAL being hosted by Claudette of BAP Attack.  We pick 10 projects to work on throughout the year and see how many we can work on each month.  We post a before and after picture on the 10th of the month.  I actually managed to finish 4 last year.
This was the first month I was bad and didn't work on them.  However, I did do a little on the 3 new ones that I added.  I have to make up for it this month.

1.  Seasonal Cat Welcome - Diane Arthurs

2.  Pretty Little New York - Satsuma Street

3.  Disney Heroe's #16 - Alina's XStitch

Disney Heroes N16. Counted Cross Stitch Pattern.  PDF Files.

4.  Winter Alphabet - Lizzie Kate

5.  Mitten Friends - Diane Arthurs

6.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs

7.  Autumn Season - Sandra Cozzolino

8.  ABC Christmas - Lizzie Kate

9.  March Sampler - Waxing Moon

10.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - 1 finish a year is going to take another 4 years!?!?!


It's Year of the Acronym time again.  This is where we pick a project and work on it during the month and post a before and after picture on the first Saturday.  It is being hosted by Pull the Other Thread.  She let us post today because of it being the new year.  I didn't work on this one the past month either.

Cut-thru North Pole House - Bothy Threads

Cut Thru' North Pole House


I want to thank each and every one of you for joining me in my Debbie challenge.  It means the world to me. I also have 201 members in my facebook group.  Because of all you wonderful enablers, I need to go cut more fabric.  lol

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Great new starts Linda. I especially love the Pretty Little Cities and have a couple planned for you-know-when! I'm also becoming a fan of Lizzie-Kate and may have to add the alphabets to my stash one day. Thank you for being such a bad influence on me!! :)

Once again you have selected some great pieces to work on for the Turtle Trot. I will have to live vicariously on the DSDUCJFC. I plan to start a special project that I saw her working on that I have been planning to buy and start. Happy Stitching :)

DJH said...

Love them all, but the Winter Alphabet is calling to me. I must find this pattern! Haha!
Great stitching!

Sarah L said...

So many great starts. I think the autumn one is my favorite of this group. I don't think I could start that many at one time. It would drive me crazy. (I guess that's why its called a crazy challenge huh? LOL)

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

Some more great starts. I love the Satsuma Street charts. One of them was on my list but we have no ink in the printer so it may have to wait!
