Sugarplum Ballerina
Counted Cross Stitch Pattern

“Within the borders of the Land of Sweets, the Sugar Plum Fairy has been keeping the Prince’s land safe while he was under the Mouse King’s spell.”

“Wow! And then what happens Mommy?”

“Ssssssshhhhh…watch and you will see little one.” You tell your little girl as she sits mesmerized by the beauty and artistry being performed on the stage.

She scoots up to the front of her seat and clasps her hands together under her chin and watches eagerly as the ballerinas twirl and leap across the stage.

You watch as her head and body begin to sway in time to the music and wonder what she’s really thinking in that inquisitive, imaginative mind of hers. You smile because you know you’ll hear all about it on the drive back home. And then your hubby and her brother will hear all about it…then her uncles and aunts and grandparents. You hide a smile behind your hand and turn to watch the Nutcracker story play out and you know this was the right time to bring your little girl.

You remember the first time you watched Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and your smile widens remembering how you swayed to the music also. And that’s when you realize that you too are swaying in time to the music sitting next to your daughter. You reach over and touch her wrist. Without pulling her eyes away from the story dancing out in front of her, she moves her hand to yours.

Together you sit, hand in hand, swaying and humming to the inspiring Nutcracker.

Let this Sugar Plum Fairy ballerina counted cross stitch inspire your little one to dance and imagine and dream.
