Pompeji Update, Robin red Breast WIP and Christmas Beaded Wreath

Here is my update on Pompejian Garden as off today, I haven't stitched for 2 wks due to alot of running around after the kids, but picked up a needle this morning, so I know have pushed the finish date to end of June/July, so long as it gets done that is fine with me.
This next piece is called Robin Red Breast, which I started back in January as one of my 15, and like with Pompeji it hasn't been worked on in a couple of weeks, but I love the way it is looking already.
Last night I decided to do a bit of beading, as I was in the mood for it. I bought this kit along time ago, so decided it was time to get it done. I loved doing this it was made within 5 mins. I am thinking about making more of these and selling them in time for Christmas. The will look lovely on anyones Christmas Tree or hanging anywhere in the house at that time of year. I know, I know way to early to be mentioning the big C word, but I loved making this, I have enough wire and beads to make them, just need more hearts and ribbons to make more.
Thanks for all your previous comments on Pompeji, I shall keep reading them until it is finished as it will encourage me to get it finished. The boys are on Half Term for a week now, so I am hoping to get more stitching time in.

Pompejian Update

Here is my next update on Pompeji, it is coming along quite nicely. I finished part 4 about midnight on the sides last night and started Part 5 this morning about 6am. I am determined not to let this one beat me, it WILL be finished lol.

Once Part 5 has been done, I only have parts 7 and 9 to go on the sides. Then start at the top to do Parts 4,5,6, 10, 11 and 12. Thanks for all your encouraging comments, they keep me going, I must finish, I must lol. The aim is to get all the stitching done by the end of the month, and then hopefully it shouldn't take me long to do the beadng.
