I started this needlepoint bear in the 1980s as a 4-H project, and found it in the craft cabinet ten or fifteen years later. I finally completed it and gave him to my friend Cathy in the mid nineties. This is the first time I'd photographed it, and had only my phone to do so, so the pictures are pretty poor. But there are so many different stitches on this project that I'm glad to have some photographs of it. He's held up well over time (especially through three kids!) but the colors are definitely eighties.
