Pattern and kit are both from 123 Stitch. They have a full range of Christmas projects that won't take you a long time. I am now working on a snowman from the same designer for my mother in law.
I had to learn how to "whip stitch," which I actually already knew but didn't know I knew and had to figure out how to get those teeny, tiny little beads onto the little, tiny needle. Also, it was very difficult to get two strands of floss through the smaller beading needle.
I'm quite pleased with the way this turned out. I gave it to my mom early so that she would have a Christmas tree this year. I am now working on the snowman and will be doing a project for a friend while she does one for me. She picked an item off of my wish list and I picked one off of hers. It's going to be fun.
Here's to hoping my hand holds out!
