Mill Hill Monday-A Day Late

I thought I would have more stitching time last week and would have something new to show, but car troubles and taking the youngest for a college visit ate up a lot of my stitching time. The upside of that was I was able to spend a lot of quality time with my husband and dd.
Here is my progress on my Mill Hill piece:
A little creepy at this point, but the colors are so much fun!

Today is Gifted Gorgeousness!

I had hoped to finish the last Magi, but it was not to be. But I have been stitching on a piece that I will eventually give away!
But before I go any further Jo at Serendipitous Stitching 
has this lovely stitch-a-long where you post things you have received as gifts, are stitching as gifts or has even the slightest thing to do with gifts! We all receive such lovely things from each other and it is fun to see what others are stitching.
Here is my piece:
A little too Halloweenie for me to keep, but I have several members of my family who would be happy to have this one or one of the others I have in my stash. And they are very bright and a fast stitch.
I am super busy the next few days and am having a difficult time finding stitching time for my large projects. Anyone else in my same boat? What do you do about it?

Work in Progress Winter

I was able to get this panel done for Tall Year Squared. The threads are lovely and the design is gorgeous, but I am ready for something else! Some of my other projects are calling my name. Hopefully I can get the next panel done quickly and move to a different project.

But I just realized I can't show progress reports of it because of Jo's Easter Blog Hop
It isn't until the end of the month and you can see if she still has room to join the fun!

Almost There

I don't like this photo, but it does show how close I am to a finish!
Just a few more beads and he is done! I think I found an idea for finishing all the pieces. Will have to do a little more research, but I hope it will be something I can use for other things too.
I have several pieces now that need to be FFO (is that Finally Finished Object?). I just need a day to do them. Does anyone one have a day to spare?

Thank You for Your Comments!

I finally had time to do my give-a-way and decided on two winners!
Linda You won the grand prize:

And CalamityJr, you won the second prize.

I will email you both and you can send me your snail mail. I probably won't get to the post office until later next week, but I will do my best! Wish I could have given something to everyone. Thanks to all for your kind wishes.
Now on to regular stitching! I may even have something to post soon!

Do You Flosstube?

I have been listening quite a while to Gary and Christine 
on Fibertalk. They have designers and store owners on and they interview them. They just put up a series of videos on the Nashville Market if you want to see some of your favorite designers!
Anyway, they are the ones that got me started on Flosstube. What is Flosstube? It is a channel on Youtube of people who cross stitch(mainly). I have a few I like and a few I dislike, but I feel that is all a matter of person preference. I never put a thumbs down on a video. I just skip it and watch someone else.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Arlene Cohen
Off the Grid Needlearts
Jessie Marie Does Stuff
Kay's Cross Stitch
Ginger Gerald Stitcher

There are tons more; all you have to do is search. I tend to watch when I am doing something boring like washing dishes or cleaning the bathroom. (I more listen than watch.) I also play Flosstube while I am doing some stitching. So, do you watch Flosstube? Who do you watch?
NO! I am not starting a Flosstube channel. I do not have time and editing videos is one of my least favorite things to do!
