Linda's March Turtle Trot Update and Starts 65 - 68

Hi Blogger Friends.   It's time for my turtle trot update.  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 finish.  I stitched on 4 yesterday, 3 on Sunday and the other 3 this past week.
Kate is doing a rotation on hers and it seems to be working really well for her.  You start on the 11th and stitch on one piece for 3 days.  Pick another one and stitch on it for 3 days etc.  Some days you  may only have time to work on one  but at least they will all get some  stitching on them.

You have to admit that I'm pretty darn consistent with my crooked pictures.

1.  Seasonal Cat Welcome - Diane Arthurs - I did the rest of the purple cloak.


2.  Pretty Little New York - Satsuma Street - I finished the blue on the building on the top right.


3.  Disney Heroe's #16 - Alina's XStitch - I added more to the tree trunk.


4.  Winter Alphabet - Lizzie Kate - I did the letter "G".


5.  Mitten Friends - Diane Arthurs - I finished his had and started his face.


6.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - I did another 100 stitches in her face.


7.  Autumn Season - Sandra Cozzolino - I stitched "Leaves".


8.  ABC Christmas - Lizzie Kate - I did another word.


9.  March Sampler - Waxing Moon Designs - I finished the cloud.


10.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - I did more snow.


Believe it or not, I'm starting to get tired of the starts.  BUT, I will prevail and finish them for the month. Remember when I said I would finish 1 and start 5.  I changed my mind and will maybe finish 2 and start 1. Of course that is subject to change.  lol
Here are my next 4 starts:

Start 65 - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - Clouds Factory

Start 66 - Cinderella - Clouds Factory
Cinderella Princess parody - Cross stitch PDF pattern


Start 67 - Mickey Mouse and Friends - Clouds Factory
Mickey Mouse and friends parody - Cross stitch PDF patterb


Start 68 - Doggy String - Lizzie Kate

Thanks for looking.    Linda

Firstly, love your new banner. How relevant for most of us!
Second, congratulations on stitching on all 10 Turtle Trot pieces. You've made good progress considering everything else you're doing.
Thirdly, WHAT? Are my eyes deceiving me about new starts? There'll be no shame if you drop out during March so good luck with carrying on.
Fourthly, love all your new starts. of course! :)

Dear Linda I am so proud of you! You progress lovely on all pieces and you're thinking about more finishes! Is that a sign of a cure from startitis?

Great starts and progress on everything! The rotation is a good idea, although I don't know if it will fit me, but maybe. Something to think on. :)

Lovely new start and fantastic progress on your TT pieces. Trying to pick a favorite this month is tough. I'll vote March Sampler because it's March and March is the Best Month. :)

Such lovely progress on all your pieces. Slowly but steady, and the word steady is what counts. BUt is your startitis really getting weak? Let's see, lol. Your new header is a hoot. Absolutely great!

Your banner made me laugh, but only because it is so true for me too! Wow, what a lot of great starts, my favorites are the Lizzie Kates her designs are always adorable!

Katie said...

Love all your beautiful stitching. I don't blame you for wanting to concentrate on working on things instead. I felt the same way.

All your projects are looking great!:) x

Miamina said...

Well done on the progress! I love the new starts also! It's your stitching so your rules can change as often as you want :) Why not just see how you feel, if you finish one and want to start some more then go for it, if you don't, then don't!

Justine said...

Love the new header! I was thinking you should change your blog name to Startin with my Furbabies...then you go and get finishitis on us! Love your new starts. I'm amazed you get any progress on your TT projects but you do, every month. Well done xx

Prairie Patch Quilts said...

I laughed when I saw your header picture. I am one to have more unfinished projects than finished. But, I am having fun...that is what makes it all worthwhile. Love all your stitchy projects.

stitcherw said...

Wow, you've made a lot of headway, they all look great. My two favorites are Mitten Friends, the little guys are so cute, and 6 Fat Men, I adore LK's designs, and have this on in my stash too as it makes me smile looking at it. Fun new starts, I'll really enjoy seeing Doggy String take shape :)
