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?"
