Turtle Trot SAL - May

For the Turtle Trot SAL, we choose 13 WIPs to work on and post progress pics on the 13th of every month.  Claudette from BAP-Attack also gives a turtle-themed prize once a month.  I won last month and she sent me these adorable kissing turtles salt & pepper shakers!  Thank you so much, Claudette!
Here is my progress since last month.  I didn't stitch on all 13 WIPs (like Linda did).  You can click on the picture to see it bigger.

Universal Unity: I stitched the tiger's ear and more fur around his face.

Thomas Kinkade's Lamplight Bridge:  I made a lot of French knots and half stitches on the right side of the bridge.

Those turtles are adorable. You made some awesome progress on the ones you did work on. I love the eagle and of course anything Disney. I still think my favorite is UU.
