Turtle Trot – January 2013

Today is Turtle Trot update day. This month I’ve been focusing on Carolyn Mitchell’s Creative Persuasion, and I think I’ve made some good progress.

There is actually some stitching with one thread in the middle section, but it is very difficult to see. It is meant, says Carolyn, just to give a small bit of different colouring to that section. But, to be honest, I can barely see it, even up close.

I’ve also been working on the collaboration design from my LNS. The top section, designed by Jeanette Douglas, is finished.

The threads are DMC and Gloriana. And there is a bunch of Mill Hill beads scattered around. The next section was designed by Laura Dickson of Enchanting Lair and will have the word “Stitching” in the centre.

Pretty good progress for around two weeks work, eh? I’m still recovering from my latest cold, so I’ve spent more time stitching and less time doing errands. (Un)Fortunately, I’m getting better, so it will be back to the regular schedule soon.
