July WIPocalypse, Turtle Trot, and a finish!

This is my belated WIPocalypse update!  The topic this time is:  "It's halfway to Christmas.  Do you start your holiday stitching this early?  If so, what do you hope to accomplish this year?"  Yes, I stitch holiday designs all year long!  I hope to finish Stained Glass Nativity and Santa's 12 Days of Christmas in time to display them this year for Christmas!  I would also love to stitch gifts for my family but if I don't finish, there is always next year, or their birthday instead.

Since the last WIPocalypse update, I have had 3 more finishes, and now the list of WIPs on my WIPocalypse page is down to 90.  I finished The Sorceress, Leo, and Alice from Resident Evil.
Alice from Resident Evil - FINISHED!

Speaking of Christmas stitching, I stitched the hat and legs and feet on Santa Hang-Up.
Santa Hang-Up update #9
I missed the Turtle Trot posting for July 10, since I was away on vacation, but here is my progress on two of them.  I finished all the blue stained glass windows on Stained Glass Nativity.

I stitched one more bottle on "99" by Ink Circles.
"99" - update #12
Bottle #17 is Stella Artois, Stella Artois, Leuven, Belgium.
Now that I finished the birthday gifts in time, I can get back to my SALs and stitching anything else I feel like!

Brilliant progress on all your pieces. Back in the days when I actually drank alcohol, I loved Stella and black (a dash of blackcurrant on top).

Congrats on the great finish Debbie.
Santa looks good. The border really doesn't take that long. Another great bottle.

I know you will get Nativity done in time.

Fantastic finish! The Santa is so cute! I will be starting the 99 bottles shortly. I am doing it for my father. He is turning 70 in December. Great post!

Wow, congratulations on your finishes!! That's a lot of stitching on Alice! I'm afraid I always have good intentions about holiday stitching, but never accomplish as much as I would like. :)
