My ’70s needlepoint pillow May 2, 2009

studio54My step-grandmother was a master needlepointer in the most WASP-y sense of the word, and it was only when I tried my hand at the craft that I realized it took skill, endurance and determination of the sort that only an aging Midwestern debutante of a certain age could muster. But Grandmother Fox never had patterns like these too cool needlepoint pillows from Jonathan Adler. If Athena could needlepoint, she would dream up something like this Studio 54 memento for the ’70s disco set.
