Turtle Trot SAL - April

Claudette of BAP Attack is hosting the Turtle Trot SAL, where we choose 10 WIPs and post before & after progress pics on the 10th of every month.  Here is my progress on three of them since last time:

Flaming June:  I finally got to stitch some orange and I'm still on page 1.

Flaming June update #8
She will look like this (some day):

"99":  I stitched two more bottles.  Only 85 more to go!
"99" (before)
"99" update #9
Bottle #13 is Red Stripe, Desnoes & Geddes, Jamaica.
Bottle #14 is Bitburger Pils, Bitburger Brauerei, Bitburg, Germany.
We're Off to See the Wizard:  I decided I didn't like the parking method after all so I stitched up all the loose ends.  This is part of Dorothy's dress.

We're Off to See the Wizard update #1
Here is what the finished picture will look like (some day).

The Wizard of Oz piece is so amazing looking! I can't wait to see it completed. Great progress on all your other pieces, too. The patterns you've picked out are very beautiful and lively.

Good to see your progress! I'm frogging all I stitched yesterday. :(

Katie said...

Great progress. When people ask about the parking method I tell them either you will love it or hate it. Sorry it didn't work for you but glad you found another way that works. Keep up that gorgeous stitching!

I see some orange peaking out in Flaming June!! Yay! I love this painting and can't wait to see more of it. Great progress on your 99 bottles of beer!!

Linda said...

Wonderful progress on all 3 pieces Debbie. I'm so happy to see you doing the "skipping" method like me on the Wizard of Oz. I think it looks fantastic. I really need to work on Disney more each month. (We need to talk about this).

I am really enjoying the progress of your 99 bottles. Posting pictures of the real bottles is great. What a wonderful job she did making that pattern. Looking forward to taking another one or two down next month ;) Happy Stitching!

Love seeing all the progress. You can keep the beer - I'm not a beer drinker. {Grin}

Giovanna said...

Greta going on the WIPs - noce to see new bottles on 99 :-)

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

You reached the orange!! Woohoo!!

Great progress on the other pieces too. I couldn't be doing with all those threads hanging around. Sometimes I park with one thread if counting is vital but that is enough for me.

Julie said...

I couldn't do the parking of the threads, I kept getting the wrong colour!
lots of lovely progress Debbie.
