Soaring with angels.

It is with great sadness that I pass along news that Jean Hilton passed away in her home in Arizona. Jean is one of my favorite designers and has created many beautiful stitches that we all use in our stitching. She very graciously gave her permission for me to use her Chilly Hollow Stitch in a design I created a while ago. I have many of her projects waiting in the wings. I know she now has her own wings.
I hope you all take a moment in her memory.

Amen. Great lady in our art and she will be missed.

I was thinking about your comment and in early 1991 I became not only acquainted with captivated by her designs at our LNS. I signed up for a couple of her classes that were offered and that became my introduction to needlepoint. The role that needlepoint has filled in my life is nearly beyond words. I can think Jean for that.
