Earthdancer

I stitched Earthdancer last week. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked. Not bad for only 3 days stitching. I still love this piece.

My first mill hill kit

This is my small rotation. I started something new this week as last month I finished Mr. Monster.
Can you believe this is my first mill hill kit? Although I have seen many I have liked, never did I like one enough to pay the price for one. When I saw this owl however…Well I had to have it.
 
I stitch in a frame that holds my snaps that hubby made for me. Perforated paer however doesn't fit in a snap, so I stitched this in hand. I think that is the reason why I like how it looks though I did not really enjoy the stitching. I hate stitching I hand. So my goal for next month is to find a way fit make this work in a frame.mi have an idea. Not sure though. I'll still finish this as I love the owl. If I can't find a way to make this work in a frame, this will be my only mill hill kit.
 
Anyone else not like mill hill kits as they don't like perforated paper?

In my small rotation I stitched Mr, Blue Monster, 28 ct. Mystery eve weave. This was a fast, fun stitch. It's mosey n me from the 2012 Halloween collector issue. I did change a few of the threads.
