These guest towels I cross-stitched many years ago and I pull them out yearly to hang in the half-bathroom. I'm pretty sure no one has ever used one, lol.
These bear stitcheries were probably Bucilla kits that I bought in 1985--I finished them in 1986 so had to change the date of the pre-printed cloth :).
The beading and the fancy white stitch around the holly leaf ring were definite challenges, but fun to try out. I don't recall any beaded projects after these, however!
She also gave me this cute snowman full size stocking who was full of little gifts for our final exchange and Secret Santa reveal. We have a great group of employees and I'm lucky to be working with them.
