Rose & Holiday delivery

It's been a long while since I updated on some miscellaneous, no deadline projects. I do work on these from time to time and in fact hope to get both of the ones I'm about to show you done by the end of the year. Though if I have many more weeks like this one where I has having shakin trouble and stitching was getting really challenging then I may have more beads sorted than stitches in. (as I sort my sale beads when I am having a lot of trouble).
First up is Rose Storykeep from HAED. This one is not available for purchase on their site (as a storykeep, you can get it as a large design) as it was part of a loyal customers HAED yuku board promotion. It's got 2 1/2 pages. I'm about halfway through page 2. Into her face where all the confetti is, so it's slow going. Done on 25ct white Jobelean:

The next one is a Mill Hill kit called Holiday Delivery. I do love these kits on perforated paper. For $15 they are affordable as they provide you with everything (including the needs) to do the project up. (no frames included). They are a nice change from over 1 on 28 or 32 ct as some of my more challenging pieces are. I love the glitteryness of the beads and textures that Mill Hill plays with in their kits.

That's all for now. I've got progress on dragons (about 1/2 page done), Ravens (about 1/2 through pattern) and started a baby sampler (Just Nan, Baby Garden). So lots to share next time I get around to taking pictures. :)

Thank you so much for reading and commenting.

I love the HAED Mel. Don't you just love those Mill Hill ones! I have a lavender Fields one to do and an Autumn Wreath one.

Your progress looks great. I have a small Mill Hill angel to do and felt intimidated when I went to try it. That was over a year or two ago so I will soon have to try again. Looking forward to seeing more progress on all of your WIPs.

Fantastic progress. Frankly I don't know how you keep sane with all that confetti stitching, but it looks great. ... and your Mill Hill gives me Christmas envy....maybe I need to start a MH tonite????

Rose is beautiful and Holiday Delivery looks very cute. Congrats on a great progress. How is your Cronus doing? He must be a big boy right now. Did he change colours?
