Turtle Trot SAL

Look at me, trying to bite off more than I can chew. I really want to cross stitch more this year, so I think that joining a stitch along will be good motivation. I decided to join BAP Attack's Turtle Trot. So, without further ado, here are the pieces I am going to get a move on this year.

Colour Pop Sampler from Cross Stitcher Magazine

Mariner's Light

Sleeping Angel by Just Nan

Peacock Majesty by Just Nan

Tall Flowers by Just Nan

Birch Tree Birds

Peace on Earth

Tiger Chilling; the black-on-black stitching is hard to see in the photo

Poppy Pair, which I am almost done with

The Kiss of the Sun

This Legend of Korra Pattern I designed

Merry Christmas Sampler from Cross Stitcher Magazine
There is one more piece I am planning on doing. I am designing a pattern to make into either a wall hanging or a pillow for my friend. The pattern will feature characters from the hit anime, Attack on Titan. However, I only recently learned about the exact characters and order she wanted everything in, so the pattern is not designed yet. This work is a lot to do, and I know I will never finish it all by the end of the year, but I hope that this stitch along will help me get a lot more starts and finishes than last year.
Lots of love and good luck to everyone participating in this SAL!
