Back to Mom and Baby Turtle and Page Finish!

Hello again!  Wow I am on a blogging roll but still have lots to catch up on.  Well another good friend of mine had a baby this summer and I wanted to stitch her a birth sampler. I got inspired after finding out the theme of his room was celestial space.  So I found a really cute pattern, bought all the supplies and started it a little before I had to fly back home to Nepal...

Unfortunately During transit in my suitcase, the fabric RIPPED along the fold lines!! I was so upset because I also had a few times where I was gently pulling the thread through and the stitched ripped the fabric too.  This obviously was a poor quality fabric :(

Anyways to cheer myself up I decided to go back to one of my favorite WIPS Mom and Baby Turtle from HAED.

The last time you saw it in April it looked like this...

I naturally started on the next page to the right.  I worked so fast and furious on this page that I forgot to take a lot of photos but here is some of my progress.

I actually finished this whole page in about two weeks which is crazy fast for me!  I really do love the colors and even though it has tons of confetti the shading looks so beautiful.  In fact I can't wait to start stitching on this again 😄

Happy Stitching!


  1. Lovely stitching. But gosh your fabric ripping is awful!

  2. You have made great progress on the HAED. Sorry about the bad fabric.

  3. Aww, it's too bad about that fabric! That's awful. Beautiful progress on your WIP, though! :D

  4. How frustrating for the fabric to rip :( I love the turtles though! :)

  5. What bright colors! I love that one. Sorry about the fabric ripping, what a pain that is.
