Royal Wedding Date

"Oh to be in England Now that Aprils there." Robert Browning.
The date has been announced and can now be printed on souvenirs. There will be a public holiday for the wedding and I think it will be an exciting event.
The daffodils will be out in the London parks. Below is a cross stitch I worked years ago because I love daffodils, the colours are better than shown in the pic.
I finished The Kiss and it is framed and on the wall.
And while I look for William and Kate patterns I am working on my U.F.O* of the Queen. This chart is hard going which is why it might always remain a U.F.O. The pearls and tiara will be hard stitching. I can only hope Kate wears very plain clothes and no spakley jewllery.

Charlotte and Emily are already bored with wedding talk, royals and souvenirs. Please note Charlotte sleeping in that cane bed she was so suspicious of.
*U.F.O unfinished object and I have lots of those.


  1. Good to hear the date has been set. April will be a lovely time for a wedding.

  2. I love daffodils too! And as the daffodil is the national flower of Wales, do you think that will be the prevalent flower at the wedding?

  3. That must be a hard work to stich the queen, lol ! London will be full that date ! I am sure that bookings already started. I'll watch on TV there you see far better !

  4. Gosh you have patience to do all that stitching. I think taking a photograph would be easier! Heehee! I will hope for no sparkly jewelry for you! :)

    Charlotte and Emily look very cozy in their cute little baskets ~ happy snoozing girls!
    xo Catherine

  5. You did a great job, 'The Kiss' is gorgeous !
    That pattern of the queen looks difficult !
    Lovely picture of Charlotte and Emily !
    Have a nice weekend,
