I know that it will be worth it in the end, but right now I am not enjoying that darn balcony! So I work on it for a while, and then I spend some time on Juliet. I'm starting to think that I can finish this up right around the end of the month. Here's my progress as of last night:

This past Saturday I got a great surprise package in the mail: a member on the 123Stitch MB was giving away some embellishment packs from Mill Hill kits to the first person who emailed her. Unfortunately, I missed being the first by about a minute, but she said she had some other kits to go through, so she would send some to me after she did that. I figured she'd send a few packs of beads, so I was blown away by what I received:

Since I like to change things up on designs, it's nice to have a variety of embellishments around to play with, and these will certainly be put to good use!

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
