Let's Go Rescue Something!

Ever come across an abandoned and unloved needlepoint piece at a thrift shop or yard sale?

We can't go visit a Salvation Army thrift shop together but we can do a little browsing on eBay.  How about this portrait of two eagles?

Or this well done polar bear pillow?  I suspect it is Chinese in origin but that doesn't mean it isn't a pretty thing.

But best yet is this charmer.  The stitching isn't perfect but somehow it has personality and would make a wonderful standup for your stitching nest.
