Turtle Trot SAL - November

For the Turtle Trot SAL, we choose 13 WIPs to work on and post progress pics on the 13th of every month.  Claudette of BAP Attack is hosting this SAL.  Next year, we'll choose 14 WIPs and post progress pics on the 14th of every month.

I finished two of them, so now I'm down to only 11.  This is my progress to show on some of them this month.  You can click on the picture to see it bigger.

Stained Glass Nativity:  I finished the green grass under the wise men.  This is a needlepoint kit that I started in 1980.
