My Needlepoint Portrait of Eleanor of Aquitaine

Seven years ago I stitched a portrait of Elizabeth 1, and three years ago Catherine the Great; tomorrow morning my third portrait in my series of powerful women arrives on my website. This one is of Eleanor of Aquitaine, the medieval world's most well known queen.

All week long on my website and also on Facebook, I have been posting photos of the details of my portrait of Eleanor, but so far the portrait of Eleanor has been a secret.

All that changes tomorrow morning: Eleanor will arrive on my website on May 1 at 8:00 a.m. California time.

Spring is here and with it the increasingly long hours of daylight. Perfect for stitching!
