Turtle Trot - Feb

Time to show off my Turtle Trot, a SAL hosted by Claudette of  BAP Attack, who just happens to be on a quest to stitch all her stash.  That is just so crazy and so inspiring!!  I love it.

As usual I am a day late, but yesterday was a sad day for our family, but we tried to make it a day of celebration.  My dear MIL passed on 9 Nov and yesterday would have been her 74th birthday.  Hubby and I took the kids (she was the only grandparent) for dinner and ended the evening singing Happy Birthday to Granny with a bit of carrot cake. 

So now on to my piece I have decided to concentrate on one piece, my BRD "Stop and Smell the Flowers" it really needs my attention and I am so close to finishing it.  I worked on some of the incomplete squares and a bit of the border.  Here is where I started.

Here is where I am at today.  I completed the block below "F" and  the block between the numbers 3 and 4. Added another row of border on the right as well.  Plan to stick with this one until it is done, done, done.

Nice progress on this one and I can see why you stick with it. I'm at that place with a couple pieces where the end is in sight. :)

Love this one CJ. I think I have every one of these charts. I have done one a few years ago and really enjoyed it.
