Turtle Trot update - May

I am starting to feel like a tired, old, broken record...not much progress...assignment writing...bleurghhhh. Well guess what?  In 11 days time I will be finished my degree, providing there is nothing disastrously wrong with this final assignment, so next month there will be loads and loads of stitchy progress. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

3 projects got dusted off and saw the light of day. First up, Henry had the dark red almost finished in his sleeve and a bit of the grey down the sleeve. Progress is progress, I know.


Honeysuckle Courtyard had some love and after looking at this photo, I can see that I had stitched the top leg of the top band with 3 going \\\ and the other 5 going /////.  Damn...looks like some unpicking to do there then!  I love the graduated look of the yellow flowers though - I couldn't have planned that!


And finally, wait for Linda's thud, I did a little bit on my Stable.  Only a bit of the grey in the horse and the red bucket at the bottom but as was said before, progress is progress!

Some progress is better than none Sharon. I am so very happy to see the Stable. I sure hope you keep working on it. You know, we have many more to do to get our wall of framed cut thrus.

Every stich is a stitch less and you will enjoy your stitchy beano all the more with your degree work behind you :-)
Lovely updates.

Congratulations on being so close with your degree! It'll be over real soon, I promise! Lovely stitching, too - I love it when the variegated thread works out so well.

Wow, so close to graduating!! How long has the degree course lasted?

You have made some progress which is good. I am looking forward to next month's updates which will all be ten pages long!
