Turtle Trot March

Hey there, fellow stitchers! I have some great progress on a couple of my pieces and one finish! I really honed in on three pieces, so there are only three progress pictures to post, but I'm still very proud of the work I did this month.
First things first: Poppy Pair. I have finished the half stitching on this one and have started the backstitching. I don't think I am going to stitch the words that go in the background, though. They don't actually say anything, and everyone I have asked thinks it would look fine without them. Really glad to be almost done with this one.
Mariner's Light: I am having too much fun working on this piece. There's a lot of detail, but at the same time, it's a small piece, so I feel like it is going pretty fast. This is a fun one to tackle if I have a lot of time and I want to watch a bit of TV in the background.
Finally, I have my first 2014 finish! I finished Tall Flowers two weeks ago, and I am so happy with how it looks. This one was pretty easy to do, and it is such a pretty pattern. I really like Just Nan patterns right now. I think I'll go out and buy myself another one soon. I'm not sure what I will do with this one. I'll probably frame it soon, but for now it goes with my other finished stitchwork (which believe me is a very small pile.)
That's it for my Turtle Trot pieces this month! I hope to have a lot more done by April, and hopefully I can have Poppy Pair finished by then.
Until next time,
Teenage Cross Stitcher


  1. Congrats on the finish!! Poppy pair looks beautiful!!

  2. The poppies are lovely! I agree with you: they stand very nicely all on their own. Congrats on your finish!

  3. Hello. I saw a comment on my blog from you and thought I would pop by and see your blog. Fantastic stitching. Love the lighthouse piece. My mother loves lighthouses so I enjoy stitching them for her. Nice to "meet" you.

  4. The poppies are gorgeous! Congratulations on your first finish of Tall Flowers! If you're on Facebook, there are groups where you can sell your charts when you are done. I'm sure lots of people would love to stitch your Just Nan pieces when you finish.
