I never did needlework except for a tray cloth in secondary school. However, I enjoyed your essay very much and also the pictures. It was a rather nice obituary for Darleen, even if it was not meant to be one.


PS, apparently Vickie Jennett of Needlework Press purchased the rights to Darlene O'Steen's designs ca.2012 with an eye towards republishing them --


-- but unfortunately I can't find much of anything about Jennett or Needlework Press online, certainly not a website, and nothing after 2019.

I have a copy of ‘Virtue outshines the Stars’ available. Let me know.
