Turtle Trot - May

I have not been making much progress on my Turtle Trot SAL pieces. I picked 10 pieces that I really wanted to make progress on this year, and I've barely touched them.

I managed a tiny bit of progress on Damask Square by Ink Circles:

I started using a magnifier when I stitch on this one, and it has made a huge difference. However, that means that I don't tend to take it with me when I travel, so progress is limited.

This past Friday, I attended a stitchy night at a dear friend's place. Eight of us crowded around her dining room table and shared a lot of laughs and more stitching than I expected! I brought out a piece that was part of my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge of 2012, and that I hadn't touched in years - Welcome Sampler by Kincavel Krosses.

I managed to stitch two Es and start a W. I am pleased with the progress of just one evening. This might just come on my next travels. Fingers crossed it'll be finished this year.


  1. Some progress is better than none Adrienne. Looking good. I love the floss that your using on Welcome.


  2. Oh I love them both! I just bought Cirque des Cercles by Ink Circles and can't wait to dig into it but trying to be good. LOVE that floss for the Welcome sampler - very nice!
