Turtle Trot for January

Well with all the new starts this month, there isn't a lot of progress on any of the projects on my Turtle Trot list.  However, there has been a bit on  Cinderella and Honeysuckle Courtyard.

First up is Cinderella.  I have finished the castle which looks better than I thought it would.  I have also started some of the backstitching on her dress as there is a fair bit and I am not over keen on backstitch.



Then is another massive start...not!  This is the start of Band 3 of Honeysuckle Courtyard.  There is a good reason for starting on band 3 - I couldn't be bothered to walk upstairs to find the threads band 1 and 2 needed. Also I am still undecided as to whether to add my parents-in-law details to the finished project and where to add them if I do!

Great job on both pieces. Loved that you didn't want to walk upstairs. I rationalize a lot of stuff like that too haha.
