A great find on ebay, a Royal Visit doiley with Tasmania included. I already had 2 doileys, one given to me by my sister, she had started the embroidery years ago and I finished it and crocheted the edge. Can't remember where I got the unworked one but neither shows any sign of Tasmania even in the instructions.
The queen did visit Tas. on that tour in 1954 so that state should have been included so I am very happy to have this doiley in my collection.
Tasmania is sometimes called the Apple Isle and the embroidery shows apples.
