One-of-a-kind needlepoint

About 30 years ago a customer in Needle Nicely's North Carolina shop asked Trubey if she could design a canvas to be applied to a mirror that would act as the headboard for her bed.  She brought in her duvet so Trubey could replicate a motif or design a canvas that would coordinate with it.  After she stitched the design, we sent it to a finisher who finished it "flat" with a backing and cording.  Then we took it to our framer, Royal Palm Frame Shop, to have it attached to the framed mirror.
When our customer later sold her condominium; and knowing it wouldn't fit into her decor in her Florida condominium, she took the needlepoint off the mirror and gave it back to Needle Nicely.  People rarely notice it today even though we have it attached to the side of a bamboo etagere that sits next to Needle Nicely's belt basket.

  1. How lovely! Too bad the customer couldn't use it going forward, but great for Needle Nicely!
