Turtle Trot and WIPocalypse

I love starting my Turtle Trot post with a turtle picture. Anyway here it is again Turtle Trot time. Yesterday was also WIPocalypse so I am going to combine the two.

So let's see what I've been working on since August 10th.

Autumn -- 9 Days
None -- 8 Days (Getting better!)
Pirate Ship - 2 Days
Tin Top - 4 Days
Ghool School - 2 Days
Halloween Exchange - 1 Day
Stitched Exchange - 2 Days
Christmas Exchange - 3 Days

Wow I worked on a lot of different pieces in this time span. I also had 4 finishes. So let's see the progress...

Autumn -- A Finish!!!!
Cut Through Pirate Ship
After (Finished page 4)...
Just Nan Tin Topper kit. Bev asked me to stitch it for her. I was able to get it finished...
Ghool School by Glendon Place wasn't started here is what it will look like...
Here is my 2 days of progress...
I finished two of my 3 exchange pieces for the PALs Retreat in October. The Halloween and the Stitched Exchange. I am thisclose to finishing the Christmas piece.
Just need to finish his beard and add some words. I will hopefully be back soon doing a happy dance post.

The WIPocalypse theme for the month is: Who is your favourite person to stitch for, or do you prefer to keep your stitching yourself? My fav person to stitch for is definitely my mom cause she loves ocean designs and so do I haha. Plus since we live together I get to see my finished pieces any time I want.

I definitely got a lot of X's done this month. Wonder what will happen between now and October 10th. See ya then to find out.


  1. Lovely update Katie. You always make so much progress on your stitching! I love the Autumn finish and of course the Pirate Ship. Hope you get your exchange pieces in plenty of time.

  2. Congrats on the awesome finish Katie. Wonderful progress this month on all your other projects.


  3. Love your Ghool School by Glendon Place. I came close to getting that chart and then didn't. May have to rethink that decision

    Love your cut through too


  4. Congrats on the lovely finish!! Great progress on your projects.

  5. I'm happy dancing for the Autumn finish, just in time for fall! (like I need another start, but where did the I stitch therefore I count piece come from?) Great progress on all your pieces!

  6. Wonderful progress on all your pieces, and congrats on a couple of awesome finishes!

  7. Great update. I love Autumn. I love all of your stitching. I have never backstitched as I went along. I always leave it until last. Is there a specific reason you have done this on Ghoul School?


Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate comments and Thank you for taking time out of your life to care whats going on in mine.
