The Cosmo Girl--In Needlepoint

I'm sure most of us in America have seen copies of Cosmopolitan on the racks at the grocery store checkout line. Did you know that the original editor, Helen Gurley Brown, stitched?   I was thinking of her yesterday and her famous "Good Girls Go To Heaven, Bad Girls Go Everywhere" pillow so I did a little Googling.  This is what I found.

She was the original model for Carrie Bradshaw, wasn't she?http://www.mamamia.com.au/social/helen-gurley-brown-cosmo-editor-and-feminist/

I'm not advocating a wild social life in one of the great cities of the world for stitchers, but being an adventurer in your stitching is no bad thing.

Helen, wherever you are, we are raising a glass of champagne to you this morning!
