Progress Report: Christmas Teddy Bear, Start to Finish

Remember my Christmas Gift Fiasco last year? Remember the pieces I talked about on the Beary Kissmas Progress Report? Now look at the calendar and realize with some growing panic that Christmas 2014 is a month and a half away.

Oh wait, no, I should be the one doing that.

All joking aside, here I am almost a year later with a Progress Report on one of the only two Christmas presents I finished in time to give as gifts last year. One was the Beary Kissmas, mentioned above – that was a gift to my boyfriend (and technically myself) to hang on our baby Christmas tree – and the other is the subject of this article!

Progress Report: Butterfly, Start to Finish

You can see almost all of the second half of this project unfold in the Five-Minute Stitch series: The Five-Minute Stitch! EP00: PILOT

Progress Report: Owl Pillow Cases

Okay! A whole year later we are finally up to the very last Christmas 2013 present!

This was the Christmas project that got started last, so it had the least amount done. And the way it’s looking this year it probably won’t be finished this Christmas either! What’s funny is I actually have this as a mini kit as well, so if it starts coming down to another time crunch I can just stitch the mini kit as a gift instead.

Progress Report: Dragonfly Needlepoint

Here it is. The dreaded first-ever needlepoint project which was the reason behind the Christmas Gift Fiasco of 2013. It was also my first, rather fail attempt at a needlepoint project.

Now all the mistakes made were entirely my fault. I shouldn’t have picked such a detailed needlepoint for my very first project. I didn’t realize how hard needlepoint would be for a beginner. I thought, “Needlepoint is just a bunch of half-crosses! I can do half-crosses!” I was very wrong.

The Five-Minute Stitch! EP21


Welcome to Episode Twenty-One of The Five-Minute Stitch!

I go over the spooky story of how one of my finishes has vanished completely besides the one picture I took of it. If you have ANY information on the piece I’m talking about, like kit details, etc. please contact me so I can get a hold of them! This is a mystery I would like to solve!
