Marilyn's Lips

There is only one person on this planet for whom I will do custom needlepoint design - and my friend Marilyn is it! Why are all my friends equipped with a bizarre sense of humor? I fought this one for two years, as I thought the gorgeous stool, an antique she purchased in England, merited something with more dignity.( I dont know why I bother to argue, as she always wins.) She brought it over to show me a little while ago, and I laughed out loud when I saw it. I don't know if the picture is clear enough to see, but the cabriole legs end in hooves! Who else but Marilyn would want this cover for it. Do notice the beauty spot by the lips- and the lovely diaper pattern background. We taught her housekeeper, Veronica, (in Spanish) to stitch background, and so on to the next project. I'm wondering "what's next?"

yikes...they look like the trashy lips in high school that had way too much lip gloss...very cool...
this goes with the diningroom chairs ,that i designed years ago ,upon request...each seat had a birds nest with different eggs in each nest...so when you got up from the table...you almost thought you should stay , sit back down and keep the nest warm , till they hatched..
and they say artists are strange...we have nothing on the average stitcher...lol
great job..

Your friend is a world class eccentric...more power to her!
