Finishes and Apologies: Turtle Trot August

Hi there, everybody! I need to take a moment to apologize for not posting in an extremely long amount of time. Here I was, saying that I was going to keep up with my blog this year and always post for the SALs, but I guess end of the year madness just got to me. With my graduation and college activities during the summer, I would plan on posting, and then realize that my deadline had passed every month. But this month, I have done it! I've got everything photographed and ready to go. I have definitely been keeping up with my stitching, and I have a lot of progress pics. So without further ado, here's my work from the last few months:
Finish: I have finished my Colour Pop Sampler! I was so happy to get this one done. It looks so pretty and I love the color palette a lot. I think this took a couple of months. In any case, I'm proud of it, and I plan on getting it framed soon.

Legend of Korra Pixel People: This is the project I am working on right now. I expect to have it done by tomorrow. I'm going to make it into a pencil case for my sister, and she's super excited to get it. This was a bit of a harder stitch because it was a pattern I had made, so I was working out all the kinks and problems as I went along, which led to a lot of replacement colors and adjustments. Still, I love how it is turning out.

Sleeping Angel: Slowly but surely. This is my little project I like to whittle away at when I have time. It's coming along though! I think I'm taking this to college to work on during my free time. It's simple enough that I don't have to lug everything around, and pretty enough to keep my interested.

Mariner's Light: A little more progress on this. I have the whole tower done, and some of the roof, but this is another project I like to work on when I have time or get bored of other pieces. I like to bounce around a lot on cross stitch projects, so I keep them all in my (not so) classy organizing system.

That's all for now! I promise I'll be better about updating! Keep stitching everyone!

Until next time,

Teenage Cross Stitcher
