Rose & What's Happening

Well as Christmas approaches it seems that things just get more and more frantic. But I did manage to get 1/2 of my Christmas shopping done. All the easy stuff. lol. ;)
We are having two Christmas' this year. One on the 18th with B/F's family and then with mine on the 25th. Seems odd to me to celebrate twice… but hey should be twice the fun then right?

As for stitching. I have been at it. Cheryl's Bouquet is closing in for the motif (then it's just the border which will be super fast I think). Dragons got neglected this past week but I will get that page done before the end of the month.
However, it was the last SAL for the second half of the year SK from HAED. So here is Rose. I gridded down (something I rarely do) so that I could still work from bottom to top. There is a giant section not stitched at the top, it's all one colour so I figured I'd save it for a day when I don't want to think at all and just stitch rows and rows.
Here she is:

Giveaway will be posted before weeks end. There is one Christmas item, One Halloween item and maybe some bonus stuff. I might split it into two haven't decided yet. I guess maybe I could get opinions. Do people rather have one big win, or two smaller wins so that more than one person gets picked?

I will also post some Cronus pics soon as he is growing so fast! We got him a new water dish that is larger and he seems to like it. So watch for more on my snake hatchling soon (and if you don't like snakes then don't watch for it. As always I will have a warning at the top of the post that there are snake pics below as I know some people just cannot deal with them due to fears)

Hope you are all staying warm and stitching!

Your cross stitch is beautiful! I love reading your posts and seeing the progress you are making on each project! I love it! I cross stitch as well, but not nearly as much as I use to.

Great stitching, Rose is growing so well. I think it's nicer to have two seperate giveaways if possible, it means two people are happy :)

Nice progress on the SK, I agree about saving the one color for later. I do that too!
