I don't know about you but this first full week back at work since Christmas felt like it lasted forever, sure glad it is the weekend!
Today is the day for my first check ins of the year for some of the SALs I am participating in. It just so happens the first YOTA and Turtle Trot of the year are on the same day, but that's ok as one of my projects counts for both :)
Even though we are only ten days in to the year I am pleased to say I have managed to get some stitching time in on two of my ten Turtle Trot pieces. If you missed my post about the projects I picked I have a page dedicated to at the top of my blog or you can click here.
First up in Tribal Orca by White Willow Stitching.
This was a new start for the year so there is no before photo, but this is where I have got to so far.
I'm really enjoying coming home after a busy day at work and working on this, it's nice not to have lots of colour changes and each little shape feels like a nice little achievement. Again, the photo does not do the fabric justice but it's not too far off the right colours.
Next is Twilight Magic. This is also my YOTA piece for the year. Here is how is looked at the start of the year.
Here it is now, can you tell a difference? If you look to the left you can see I have added more purple and joined that blob of pink to the edge. Not a huge amount but not bad for two hours work while been distracted from my new Big Bang DVD :)
Right, I am off to do some more stitching. With the crazy windy weather here in Scotland I have no intention of leaving the house this weekend unless I have to!
