Turtle Trot SAL - August

For the Turtle Trot SAL, we choose 13 WIPs to work on and post progress pics on the 13th of every month. Now I'm down to only 12.  I didn't stitch on all of them like Linda did!

I skipped the update in July, so here is my progress since June.  You can click on the picture to see it bigger.

Universal Unity:  I stitched the tiger's other front leg.

Universal Unity update #10
The Sorcerer:  I stitched his smoking crystal ball.

The Sorcerer update #6
Flaming June:  This is my first HAED chart.  I stitched more blue sky.  Next time I'll get down to the water.
(before)
Flaming June update #4
Merry Christmas:  I stitched the letter "i" on Christmas.  This chart is from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe.
(before)
Merry Christmas update #5
Day of the Dead:  I stitched the jaw and chin and yellow on the mouth.  I'll start on the forehead next time.  This design is from the Twisted Stitches book.

Day of the Dead update #8
Orange Poppies:  I stitched two more strands of orange around the edge of the poppy.  This Thea Gouverneur design will be huge!

Orange Poppies update #3
