The book has a pullout section at the back showing the tapestry and each chapter of the book relates back to the tapestry. Jean is not too much older than me and she does make me wonder about my own life story. Is there more to me than collecting Royalty , my cats and my cross stitch? Will need to think about that.
This was D.M.C kit I bought in London and worked on 16ct aida.
It starts with the battle of Hastings in 1066, goes through major events in the last 1000 yrs including the death of Princess Diana. Here I must admit I dropped one event and put the last one as Australia votes No Republic in 1999.
The bands running between each peice of history are based on the Bayeux tapestry. I would love to see the bayeux tapestry, it is on my long list of things to see/do before I die.
Another sampler I stitched for the year 2000, this chart was in a magazine and once again I dropped an event so I could fit in my grandson's names.
