April's Turtle Trot

Taking a break from all the letters for a Turtle-Trot post!

The Turtle-Trot SAL is to choose 13 slow Works in Progress and post about any progress you made on the 13th of the month.  You can join at BAP Attack! if you are interested.  By the way - if you think I have a lot of WIPs?  You've seen nothing until you've seen hers!!!

Here's the ones that got a bitty-bit of love this time around - I've been drowning you guys in so many pics that I thought I would just keep it to one picture today.

Let's see - Angel of Grace got a tiny bit of ribbon, Snowing got a whole grand 50 stitches or so!  Celtic Christmas got the green of the next motif done, Lovers got a good bit of skin...  That's Erestor on the left, he got about four more colors started!  Wufei probably got the most - I went way down his sleeve with three different colors and did some more on the other side of his collar.  Fred got his backstitch started, and finally, Gettysburg has some currently completely invisible white stars and flag stripes added.

So I did not make my goal of at least one needleful on each 13 projects, but 8 is still the best I've done so far!  I will show more detail on some of these after the A-Z challenge is done.

Have a great weekend, or what's left of it!


  1. Congrats on making great progress on these Tama. I barely made all 13. I do love looking at all your pictures so no need to do just one.


  2. Looks great! I think I need to join this turtle trot ASAP! Keep up the good work!

  3. Well done working on all of these projects. Definite progress. :)

  4. What a great photo of all your progress at once! I love your term of "needleful."

  5. I have one WIP of Mt. Rainier that I haven't worked on in literally 10 years. My parents gave it to me for Christmas 2002 and I started working on it in early 2003, then my dad was diagnosed w/ cancer and died that June and that cross stitch became a symbol of a very difficult year. It has colour changes almost every square and I gave up when it was about 2/3 done. I need to get back to it.
