Rosey Grier

Rosey Grier played tackle for the Rams and the Giants and was a member of the "Fearsome Foursome." Off the field he worked in needlepoint, and he published "Rosey Grier's Needlepoint for Men" in 1973. He even made appearances on TV to promote male crafting. It's a wonderful book and has chapters for "the sportsman", "the ladies in your life", and "just for you."
The caption reads, "Me, with most of my menagerie. I may be too old to sleep with a panda, but I sure can needlepoint one."

a Whale of a Tale

I love the majestic size and weight of whales, and I made an animation about one while in school. I stitched this last summer when I was considering getting a tattoo of a whale on my right shoulder. I still haven't gotten it yet, but perhaps this will be the summer.
