March Turtle Trot!

Hi everyone. Hope you are well!
I have my March Turtle Trot update and have some progress to show.
1. Ursula Michael Snowmen SAL
before

After, one square, of nine, done. Not too pleased with this one. I used DMC light effects for back stitching and the fabric started bunching up. It will be finished as a pillow. I hope that the bunching will not be an issue as a frame would be.

2. Joan Elliot, Spirit of the Orient SAL
before
 After. I frogged the lettering, on the second line, last night and forgot to take a pic. It was one stitch high and corrected that.
3. 3 Little House Needleworks Hot Cocoa
before
 Finished!
4. Serenity Harbor was not stitched this month. I did get the next instalment and will play catchup for next month.
 5. Fleurs du Ciel, Angie Designer SAL
Before
 After
 6. Holiday Bear, Ursula Michael, Cross Stitcher Magazine dec 1995
Before
 After
 7. Joan Elliott, Faces SAL
No stitches this month
 8. Brooke's Books Spirit of Knitting with colors changed, on plastic canvas, 14 count.
Before
 After, finished!!! I had the wings done. Looked at the pattern and realized they were supposed to be stitched on the silver paper, which I would have used white. I decided to use Glisten Gloss Estaz Opalescent white, on the edges of the wings, to cover the brown color of the plastic canvas.
 9. Magaret Sherry Halloween Friends from the 2012 calendar. From either World of Cross Stitching or Cross Stitch Crazy. Can't remember which.
Before
 After
 10. Ciro Marchetti, HAED 2013 SAL, Mystic Garden
No stitches this past month.
I am very happy to have my Spirit of Knitting done. One UFO down and many to go. Will choose two more projects, at least one UFO, to enter into the Turtle Trot SAL. The link for this SAL is on my side bar if you are interested in joining. Choose 10 projects, to try to make progress on, for the month. You don't have to stitch on each one every check in.
Thanks for looking in and happy stitching!
Deb

Great progress on your choices and some lovely finishes too. The Spirit of Knitting looks lovely with the changes. I have several of Brooke's witches in my stash, I've started one so far!
