Turtle Trot - June

It's Turtle Trot time! Turtle Trot is a slow SAL where participants chose 10 WIPs at the beginning of the year and each month we report on the progress made that month.

As usual, my progress is not huge. Stitching has not been at the forefront of my crafty time this year.

I did make a little progress on Welcome Sampler by Kincavel Krosses.

I realized I don't have enough of the silk I was using (Pizzazz by Carrie's Creations), so I thought I could add in some black and maybe remove a few elements from the design. However, I stopped pretty quickly as it is not working out like I had hoped. Not sure what to do with this piece right now.

I also spent a little more time with Ciara Blue from Blackwork Journey.

Slow progress, but very pretty!!

I keep hoping I'll find more time to stitch, but really it isn't about finding time. I can always find time to craft. My problem this year has been motivating myself to stitch.


  1. Nice progress Adrienne.


  2. Oh I'm sorry you ran out of Pizzazz silk! Hopefully you can find more to finish this beautiful design! Have you tried the Cross Stitch Hunting group on Facebook?

  3. Great progress. Hopefully your stitching mojo comes back quickly.

  4. Great progress on both. I hope you can find a solution for Welcome Sampler

  5. They look amazing. I hope you find more of the Pizzazz silk, they are great colours in "Welcome".

  6. Your black work is awesome. I haven't touched mine in years. 21 to be exact.
