President Reagan's Needlepoint Pillows UPDATED

Included in the auction of Ronald and Nancy's Reagan's home contents is this needlepoint pillow, a gift to the President.    Many thanks to Jo for posting about this on Facebook.

UPDATE:  I changed the link which was the wrong one and substituted a video of the interior of the President's home in Bel Air.  There are many needlepoint pillows to be glimpsed although the ones you get a good look at are all tent stitched mementos stitched by their friends.  They are very personal and obviously stitched with love and friendship.

UPDATE #2:  A bit of background on the "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" pillow.

  1. The link isn't working. It takes you to someone else's FB entry. Maybe it's just my PC... :-)

  4. I agree. The house, although expensively decorated, seems like a home and the pillows are obviously tributes from friends.
