Barbara Bush's Needlepoint on Display UPDATED

We've all just learned that Mrs. Barbara Bush has died.  I think the Spinster Stitcher says it best--

Marlys just visited the George Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas and took photographs of Barbara Bush's needlepoint on display. She posted the photographs on Needlepoint Nation. Use the side arrows to browse.

The former First Lady's famous needlepoint rug was featured in both a special edition of Needlepoint Plus (1990) and...

…the September-October 1986 issue of Needlepoint News.

The famous needlepoint ornaments were featured on one of the White House Christmas trees in 1991's Needlepoint Christmas theme and I think some of the Nutcracker theme tree ornaments for 1990 were also needlepointed.

UPDATE:  EGW Publishing has kindly posted the Needlepoint Plus article about Mrs. Bush's famous floral rug on their website for everyone to enjoy.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
