I have been a needlework designer/teacher since I was young which was, alas, a long time ago. At first I painted needlepoint canvases, then I fell in love with counted work on a study-trip in London. I survived EGA Certification in canvaswork and later served on the Certification Committee twice.
I like things in fours. I know the artistic world prefers things in threes, but I like fours. I was trying to figure out why and I decided it has to do with the four seasons.
So until now I stitched four powerful women: Elizabeth 1, Catherine the Great and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Three is fine, but in keeping with my love of fours, I decided on a fourth and Last Queen.
Who is she? it is a secret until Friday, August 10.
This week, I have packed my e-jet and taken my followers on a trip to meet the Last Queen. It is on my website each day.
Tomorrow (Wednesday August 8) we come closer to knowing her identity, and then Thursday, August 9 even closer.
It is my Last Queen and so I am partying on Thursday night with a stitch in into the wee hours. You are welcome to join me -- I will be stitching away and posting notes in my Shining Needle Society Rooms -- and sometime around midnight New York time I will post one last playful page on my website, and then in the morning we will meet my Last Queen.
