Hello, I  was wondering if you would be able to forward this to anyone you 
think might be interested. The retaining wall fell (about 4 feet from back 
door). It has turned into a much bigger and more expensive project than any one 
could ever have imagined. 

This week on Ebay auctioning off the following:

ORIGINAL STUMPWORK MIRROR SURROUND by Nostalgic Needle
Ebay Item number: 250227899974 

This auction is for the one-of-a-kind original stumpwork mirror surround 
designed and stitched by Sharon Cohen of Nostalgic Needle.  The piece is featured 
on the cover of the Winter 2007 Sampler & Antique Needlework Magazine.  This 
intensive work of stumpwork was stitched in the manner of 17th Century English 
Stumpwork Mirror Surrounds and was accomplished by Sharon over a period of 
many years and features hundreds of thousands of stitches, every one worked with 
great care and love.  The embroidery is framed in a lovely gold toned wooden 
frame and has a mirror in the center in the traditions of old.

This special piece is a one of a kind embroidery by the artist and will 
feature documentation to the buyer's wishes to this effect.  The finished project 
measures 14 1/2" x 15 1/2" framed. 

Sharon Cohen has dozens of embroideries in private and public collections and 
this is her "masterwork" of the art of raised embroidery and she will never 
produce another one like it.
