November Turtle Trot and WIPocalypse

Today is the 10th so that means it's time for Turtle Trot. The 6th was WIPocalypse and since I was heading to my local stitching retreat I figured it could just wait until today. For Turtle Trot in case you don't know we picked 10 patterns to work on and update the progress on the 10th of each month. Let's see which ones I worked on from my list...

I also worked on two things not on my Turtle Trot list. I started Let's Cross Stitch by Ursula Michael and here is where I got after 3 Days of working with 2 being this past weekend at my local stitching retreat...
If I just would have had a few more hours it would have been finished. I also started and finished Freezing Season by Foxwood Crossings...
I just need to get it cut out and put on the sled. I spent 3 Days working on it. Loved each second!

This month's check in for WIPocalypse had this topic...What are your favorite and least favorite materials to use in your stitching? My favorite fabric would be 28ct evenweave. My least favorite fabric would be linen. I just don't like the unevenness of the fabric. My favorite threads would have to be DMC cause I can get them easier. My least favorite would be Kreinik cause it likes to be a pain when stitching. My favorite way to hold my material is my Q-Snaps I couldn't imagine life without them. My favorite needles are Bohn size 28 as of right now. I think that about answers the topic. I'll be back tomorrow to talk more about my retreat.
