Doris Day's Needlepoint at Auction

Thanks to Tim, I've learned that the upcoming auction of Doris Day's estate at Julien's Auctions has plenty of needlepoint items for sale.  The auction will be held April 4 and 5, 2020.  All proceeds will go to the Doris Day Animal Foundation.

Tim says the lots with stitched items are:
471 - embroidery on linen
494 - three needlepoint dog pillows
Second Session Lots
1005 - dog tapestry with beaded fringe and needlepoint coin purse
1021 - embroidered bell pull and flat unframed embroidery
1022 - dog tapestry pillows 
1023 - dog saying needlepoint pillow
1057 - traditional floral needlepoint footstool

There appear to be a lot of dog and cat pillows that are not needlepoint per se but it can be difficult to tell.

To see anything or just browse, click on "Flip Through Catalogue," then click on the terms and conditions box, then click on "View Catalogue."  Click on the Table of Contents on the left side of the page to find sections with your lot number.  Use the little magnifying glass icon at the bottom of the page for a better look.

Tim, thank you!
