Betty White's Needlepoint at Auction UPDATED

From Celebrity Needlepoint by Joan Scoby and Lee Parr McGrath

Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills will auction items from Betty White's estate September 23-25, 2022.

The two needlepoint items offered are " orange needlepoint director's chair decorated with owls and reading "Allen" on the seat back made by White for her husband [Allan Ludden]" and "a large and beautiful decorative needlepoint wall hanging of exotic birds and butterflies which includes a photograph of White sitting while working on this needlepoint."

I think needlepoint pillows will likely also be available but can't confirm that until the auction goes live on Julien's website.  I've found several articles about Ms. White needlepointing various items.

Needlework Retailer posted this to their Facebook page.  I can't find the photos anywhere so screenshotted the entire item for you.

UPDATE:  Stitch Stash won three items from the auction!  The two floral pillow canvases (not made up) are 29 x 27 inches while the shell rug is 49 x 48 inches.
