Okay, this is not turning into a society column, I promise... A good friend of mine spotted a pillow I embroidered in the December '04 issue of W magazine. This wan't just any commission: Carrie Fisher hired me to embroider a portrait of Elizabeth Taylor's beloved dog Sugar as a birthday gift to her last year. W was doing a feature on La Liz and my pillow turned up in the spread! I was really worried about whether or not she'd like it, and seeing it among her collection of needlepoint pillows, I guess I have my answer. If you'd like to see a detail of the pillow, click here. Is there a good story behind all of this? You bet. You might hear more about this adventure of mine with Carrie Fisher in an upcoming issue of BUST. Stay tuned!
