Thank you, Lilly!

The death of Lilly Pulitzer, this week at age 81, has made me think about how grateful I am for her influences in my own life for so many years. Back in high school, when I was first designing needlepoint canvases (yes - over 40 years ago), I lived in "Lilly" and was very aware of colors and designs through her creative eyes. Last year, I developed my own "Lilly-Inspired Original Designs" collection of needlepoint canvases and have been steadily adding to it. It has been one of the most fun and rewarding lines I've ever worked on. Watch for lots more to come, in the next couple of months, as my homage to a great visionary in design, and one of my heros.....  Thank you, Lilly!
