All kinds of Project Updates

Where does the time go?
I can't believe how fast February went by!

Well had my birthday and it was awesome. Got some gift cards and things for stitching/beading stuff.
Also got this amazing heart in the mail from Evalina. She is too kind and sends me so much great stuff!
Here it is:

My canvaswork is coming along. Some sections better than others. But have a few. This little piece will the top flap:

There is a mistake in the large one on the left-hand side. I haven't decided if I'm frogging it or not, for now I'm leaving it.
And this is the main body (it also folds into two).

I'm also working away at beading. I'm really pleased that I have odd-count peyote worked out. It looks so tiny here to me, it took forever just to get that much done! This one will be a gift for my sister:

And finally… the Santa from Mill Hill. Here he is with all the cross stitches done. Now just onto the beading.

I know I promised a giveaway, but it's been snowy and very cold here (-30C) so I haven't had a chance to get to the store to see about some new stuff. I do have a few things at home… so I will see if I can put together something this week.

I am close to a page finish on Dragons. Will be working that one this week.
Thanks for all your comments! I love each and everyone of them!

Great bracelet! The pattern reminds me of a snake... (how is your baby?)Santa looks almost done, love your canvas work! And I'm glad you like the heart.

Happy Belated Birthday Mel!

Your canvas work is looking great - I love all the shades of pink, and your Pirate Santa is going to be really cute ;) I also really like the colours of your bracelet; bead weaving does take a *lot* of time (and patience, lol) so I wouldn't feel bad about that at all!

Isn't it fun to have so many projects to work on. You don't get bored with anything that way. All of them look wonderful. I can imagine how much time that beading takes.

Very nice birthday gift from Evalina!!! Your canvas work looks nice, what is it going to be that it folds up?? I'm working on my Mill Hill RR and the cross stitch part looks incomplete without all the beads! I'm sure next update yours will be done!

The heart Evalina sent you is very pretty.

All your projects look great. What is your canvas piece going to be that there are sections?

I really like the colors in that heart, and of course I love the Santa (Mill Hill!) Everything looks great, but those are my favorites.
