Come to Think About It...

...why aren't more of those stunning pieces we are stitching collected?

All I can say is that we need to document our work so that in 200 years when art collectors discover needlepoint of the late 20th-early 21st Century, they have some idea of who we were and what motivated us.  We are truly under the radar now, blogs, magazines, national seminars and all.  No one notices us and our handwork.

Not yet, anyway.  But someday....

P.S.  Many thanks to Liz who found Mr. Wileman's art and alerted me.
