Turtle Trot April 2014

Hello happy stitchers.

BAP Attack is hosting Turtle Trot 2014.  This is my April update. It is a few days late but I had a special Craft weekend to attend with four girlfriends.  I spent the evenings cross stitching so I had a ball. 

Since March 10th, I have made progress on six of the ten projects on my list.  

1. Shores of Hawk Run Hollow by CHS
More stitching on the sun this month. I should finish this block by the May update.



2. I Love London
I stitched the red L this month.



3. Shepherd's Bush 2007 Christmas stocking
More little buildings and sheep adorn the hill.



4. Annet Eriksson's Passion for Stitching Chateau - I found it hiding in a bag in a cupboard- hoorah!  I have stitched the letters "i" and "e" this month.

5.  Christmas House by Bucilla
I have started some curtains on the room below. The bedroom isn't quite finished as I need to match up some green thread.



6. Designers Forum Needlepoint Rug - no progress this month

7. The Prairie Schooler Alphabet
I have spent a lot of time stitching the B and C letters this month.  By the May update I will have finished C is for Cow and have started D is for Drum.



8. Country House Needleworks Santa's House- no progress
9.  Bucilla Touch of Gold- no progress
10. The Prairie Schooler Pumpkin Patch- No progress

I am happy to have made progress on 6 of my 10 projects. It's hard finding the time to stitch on all 10! Maybe next month.

Happy stitching…
