"Whistle While You Work" cross stitch update

My "Whistle While You Work" cushion has come along nicely over the last couple of weeks since I last showed you a progress photograph.  I'm still loving working on this piece, despite the slight monotony of the border.  I won't deny that it looks great, but there's a lot of it!

Lucas has been out having fun with his cousins this morning, so I have managed to get a lot of stitching done.  You can just see the beginnings of the gold scissors peeking out in the top left of the photograph and soon a smaller bird will be joining them to balance out the piece.

I've been using these fun and colourful parts to "reward" myself for finishing each of the hearts in the border. I can't be the only stitcher who does this, surely?

I'm trying hard not to think ahead to the next project, but I did stumble across this rather nice "Home" cross stitch piece--love the bunting!--that would look great in the hallway...
