Turtle Trot - May 2015

I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing, restful weekend, and that those who are mothers had a very Happy Mother's Day. Above is a basket of flowers I bought for my mom - cat not included;) Hubby got his mom a plant as well as she loves to garden:)
Yesterday was also the posting day for the Turtle Trot SAL. At the beginning of the year we all choose 10 projects that we wanted to make sure to make some progress on during the year. For me it was out of many, many projects:)
This month I was able to work on one of my chosen projects. The before progress...
 And the after...
This is Flower and Bird Sewing Roll from Chessie and Me. I've almost got the first of the two panels done now. I have one thread color issue that is going to hold me up a bit until I figure it out. I changed out the color of fabric (the first photo being more true to color) and because of that the yellow-y thread they used for the tulip flower won't work. I'm not sure what I'm going to use yet, but I will continue on with this once I've figured that out:)  Until then I will move on to the next project and have fun with it for a while!! Happy Stitching!!


  1. Hope you enjoyed Mother's Day! This is a very pretty project... hope you find the right thread colour! :) x

  2. This is such a nice projects and you added the next two birds on it. I love designs with birds.
