Hey guys! Long time since last video. Here is my project list for 2015! Eight projects I am intent on finishing by the end of the year, plus Little Princess (which I finished January 2nd) and Artiste's Snail. That will put me over my resolution of 10 finished pieces by the end of the year and I will only add on to that number! This year will be the year of finished cross-stitch pieces. :)
The Five-Minute Stitch has taken on a whole new challenge: a Mini Kit Rotation! Each month I rotate through 3 mini kit projects: Let's Set Sail by Bucilla, Believe by Janlynn, and Teapot by Artiste. I record and upload five videos on each mini kit before rotating to the next one. This is an experiment, both to see whether I can keep up with a rotation (I've failed all my rotations in the past) and to see whether I can stitch enough in five minute blocks to complete all three projects at the same time. Watch this playlist to see these mini kits unfold and to listen to discussion on stitching techniques as I work to achieve my goals!
I do not do enough stitching in my daily life. I have plenty of free time but a lot of other hobbies, so I don't get as much stitching done as I would like. So, I am holding myself accountable: maintain a video diary where I stitch for at least five minutes three days a week. Hopefully I can increase that to five minutes every day a week, but I'm starting small to begin with!
