A sweet surprise.

Earlier this morning I pulled my embroidery books and magazines out of storage searching for some stitch inspiration to get me ready for the latest tutorial at Down to Earth.
A few DMC floss wrappers fell out of pages and I saw a few patterns that are familiar to me as long abandoned WIP's.
I was very pleasantly surprised when I opened up this mag from 1991 and saw this cross stitch poking out of the pages! I have no idea what I was originally intending to do with these and the incomplete piece is a family of bears in church which indicates I had someone or thing in mind for it ...

Well what ever my original intent was here I have some sweet little Christmas bears under the mistletoe ( a little too close to one edge of the fabric ) ready for a last minute project!


  1. i love cross stitch but have not done it for a long time i think I will have to find something to do.

  2. I used to cross stitch too! And you've just inspired me to go look through my cross stitch box in case there are some nice surprises for me too! I'll let you know! :)

  3. That is soooo sweet, Tammy. Perfect timing too LOL Serendipity!

    Love from Sue

    enjoy *~*

  5. It's gorgeous, never mind that its close to one edge..mmm what are you going to do with it.

  6. What a lovely surprise and so timely. I wish something would fall out of somewhere and inspire me!

  7. Old Tammy must have left it as a present for future Tammy. :)

    I'm getting into cross stitching at the moment too and I just bought another kit from Spotlight today for only $5!

    Can't wait to see what you do with this. - me@salihan.com
