Rosey Grier's Needlepoint for Men via panopticist

"Like Joe V. Reed, Francis LeB. is another guy whose wife does needlepoint too. They come home at the end of the day and relax with a cocktail and a little stitching. Maybe there's something to this--a marriage where the partners who needlepoint together will stay together?"

The Tackle

Comments: needlepoint

This one reminds me of something I was trying to explain to a completely uncomprehending Parish the other night; which was, as His Bobness writes in his stunning recent book:

"Sometimes you say things in blogs* even if there's a small chance of them being true."

(*Actually, the Bobstar says "songs", but same diff.)

"A hunter might really like to hang a picture of his favorite dog in his den or office. It could even be mounted as a pillow if you wish"

I have a picture of my dog in my den Miss, but pillows?

I have a picture (or three), but no. No pillows.
(No Den either)

Anyway my needlepointing would probably be naif at best, and possibly very Abstract.
Such a pillow would be destined to be found in an Op shop many years later and posted on a Blog.
