May Turtle Trot 2014

Hello lovely stitchers.

BAP Attack is hosting Turtle Trot 2014.  This is my May update.  I hope you like following my progress. This Turtle Trot allows me to focus on a few WIPs each month. I am one happy girl for signing up to this SAL.

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

1. Shores of Hawk Run Hollow by CHS

I am so close to finishing this block it isn't funny! Only the word "may" and five birds left to complete it. It will definitely be finished by the next update.  Maybe I will make a start to block 2 at my next post also.

The PS looks stunning Jan, I can see why that would be your focus stitching project. Great progress on the others too.

That's some great stitching progress, I love the Shores of Hawk Hallow - i'm always partial to a cross stitch that has waves and lighthouses!
