Gentle readers and Dear Friends we loose two fine women today - one from film and one from our own stitching community.
Jane Russell - 1921-2011
Her film career started with the 1943 classic Howard Hughes "The Outlaw" and she became a pinup for WWII's GI's. After the war she and hit her stride in the 50's with such films as "His Kind of Woman" - 1951, "Macao" - 1952 and glorious "Gentleman Prefer Blonde's " in 1953. This buxom beauty was always be remembered as a class act.
It has been reported by the Norwalk Reflector that Lisa Roswell's car was washed off of Ohio 61 into Cole River. The car was retrieved from the river with Lisa inside. Rivers in NE and NW Ohio have been flooding due to snow and rain swelling them beyond capacity. She was the owner of "The Primitive Needle" - her passing is huge lose to the stitching community. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her Husband and children. You can click HERE for the entire news story.
A sad day -
