I bought these vintage Sesame Street embroidery kits at Goodwill. They are in amazing shape despite being from 1977. I Just finished the last one today and I will be putting them up in my son's room at our new apartment when we move next month.

The whole shebang:

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Ooo! Nice vintage find! Is the Big Bird on the nest done in turkey stitch?

I continue to be on the hunt for Tula Pink Nightshade fabric, with the Coven cameos in any colorway. To buy, swap, or otherwise obtain. Name your price, me hearty!

Great find and excellent job stitching them!  I wonder if they were worth any money unopened?  The Big Bird and Bert & Ernie ones on the left side of the big panel are my favorites out of the entire group.

My local St.Vincent De Paul thrift store has tons of stuff like that too in their craft aisle (only I'm too lazy to ever actually make anything with the crafting kits that I buy from them, lol)!

Very nice! It reminds me of watching Sesame Street as a young kid. I especially like the Big Bird in his nest. Did anyone else watch the movie "follow that bird" over and over again?
