Turtle Trot Time and Starts 65-68

It's the 10th of the month, so it must be Turtle Trot Time! This is being hosted by Claudette of BAP Attack. We pick 10 projects to work on and post progress pics each month. I missed the check in last month, so these show two months of stitching.
I came up with a good rotation schedule, so I managed to work on all 10 this month:
1. Roly Poly February
 I stitched most of the arms and most of the backstitching on the body.

2. Roly Poly March
I stitched the paws and the muzzle.

3. Roly Poly April
 I stitched more of the raincoat.

4. Roly Poly August
I stitched the rest of the white section and half of the right side blue.

5. Roly Poly September
I stitched a little bit more of the left side blue and some of the brown center.

6. Brown Trotter
I stitched more of the body and started stitching one of the legs.

7. God So Loved the World
I stitched more of the sky.

8. Lid Up
I stitched more of the tank and started stitching the bowl.

9. Next Trick
I finished stitching the toilet paper.

10. Sunflower Seeds
I stitched the box at the bottom and part of the inner border.

I'm finally getting tired of doing new starts, but I'm going to stick it out for the month.
Here are the last four, all from Cherished Teddies A Calendar Year in Miniature:
#65: Snowy January
#66: Love in February
#67:March Winds
#68: April Showers

Thanks for reading and looking.
Blessings :-)
