Late February and VERY Late January YOTA post!

Hello fellow crafters and bloggers.  Today I am showing you my progress for the YOTA or Year of the Acronym SAL hosted by pull the other thread.  I have been stitching a lot but not blogging much this year.  I was really hoping to finish or purchase the one lonely floss I needed to complete Medieval Lady while we were home in the US but I didn't.  When we made it back to Nepal I was however able to finish all of the beading!  Here are some photos of her from January.  I only last week ordered the floss to finish her so I have no idea when I will get it in the mail.

Anyways here she is overall!

And a close up of some of the beads...

And here is a view of her beautiful face and the tiny amount of stitches left to complete when my floss arrives.

I really enjoyed stitching this design from Karen Brittan found in Cross Stitch Gold Magazine!

Ok that was what I should have posted for on to February's YOTA project.  I have been dying to get back to my first HAED start Mom and Baby Turtle.  The last time I worked on it was almost a year ago and I had just finished the first page which you can see here :

Here is the stitching I have done so far...

This page is almost twice the size of the last one.  I started working on it again because I needed a break from my son's birth sampler.  I really love the colors and haven't had too much confetti stitching to do yet.  Hopefully I'll have more to show you next month and my post will actually be on time!  Happy Stitching!


  1. Lovely projects Lulu. I really like the turtles.


  2. Amazing almost-finish! The Medieval Lady looks fantastic. Great progress on the turtles too! :D

  3. Wow Medieval Lady looks wonderful!! Love your new YOTA project. Looking forward to seeing this progress.

  4. Almost finished! What an elegant lady :)

  5. Beautiful stitching! How frustrating to have to wait for one skein of floss :/
    I hope it arrives quickly for you.

    1. Thank you Annie! I bought it on Amazon and paid WAY too much for it but if I bought from a stitch site I knew I would have bought more stash...

  6. Medieval Lady is wonderful - so close to a finish as well! I love the turtle piece and especially the fabric you've chosen to stitch on.

  7. Thank you Justine! The turtle fabric is dark seafoam green from Stitchin Mama.
