The Beading has Begun

I'm really enjoying my snowmen design, as I have just started the beading. It does take rather a long time so I have only completed a couple of rows on the bottom. It is certainly coming along well now and my mum says she will display it for Christmas. Here's where I'm up to so far.

My evenweave arrived today and the first thing I noticed was how soft it was! When I looked closer, I thought the stitches would look quite large over 2, but maybe that's because I'm used to working on 18ct aida. I will persevere with it though, I'm planning to start my evenweave project at the weekend. Talking of new projects, has anyone else seen BeckySC's new Great Pumpkin Challenge? I signed up for it because I think it's a great motivator. Go and check it out.
And on a final note, I would like to wish my friend Timothy a very happy 18th birthday which he celebrated yesterday. He always teases me that his birthday his before mine, but it's only a week till I turn 18. I'm not too far behind :)
I hope you're having a lovely week,

Love your snowmen WIP!
I added my name for the pumpkin challenge as soon as I heard about it. I'm not sure I'll be able to complete more than one though.
