Turtle Trot April

It's time for the April Turtle Trot check in! I have some lovely progress to show on two pieces, and one finish. First off, a new piece: Colour Pop Sampler.
This one was from Cross Stitcher Magazine. I decided to start it because I was getting restless working on some of my other projects. All the supplies were there, and it was just too tempting to not start. I love the vibrant colors on this piece, and it is simple enough that it goes quickly and easily.

Next, here is a bit more of Sleeping Angel. I now have all the white stitched and am working on finishing the dark green. This is a fun piece to work on, and linen is so easy to count on now, so I'm not spending twenty minutes trying to find my place.
And finally, my finish! I'm done with Poppy Pair! My sister gave me this in August for my birthday and I started it in September. For the last 6 months I've been working on it off and on (mostly off) and I finally have it done. Even the French knots, which I am proud to report, are no longer the threat I used to believe them to be.

I'm so happy with the final result.

That's all for this month! Happy Stitching everyone.
Until next time,
Teenage Cross Stitcher
