Coronation and C and D Fabrics

First an update on William and Kate to show I am still working hard and another few months should see this project finished.

Found this duchess set on my op shop/market hunt on Saturday, a great find for my linen collection.

I now have nine of these Charles and Diana wedding panels plus two in navy which I made into a quilt. Each panel is 3feet square and I have no idea what I will do with the panels but a great addition to my collection. Charlotte just happened to be walking past checking out my activities,

Rare (I think) fabric from the 1953 coronation, this cotton fabric has pictures of Phillip and a young Charles and Anne. I have four repeats of the coronation, 48inches wide and 3 yards long.

Yes I know we went metric years ago but these are old fabrics and imperial measurements
apply. This was an ebay bargain and I was the only bidder.

Also I did mean to show this pic. first but I have been so lazy with my blogging lately I got mixed up and everything is the reverse of how I wanted.

William Kate and Catching Up

These cardboard cutouts of William and Kate were on a magazine display stand in a local supermarket. Lucky for me I have connections in the right places and carried them home when the display was finished. Emily is once again looking worried by my enthusiasms, Charlotte is still making up her mind.
And where have I been for the last 3 weeks? In a Blogger won't let me comment on other blogs/Post Royal Wedding/Post London Trip and now it's Winter SLUMP. Hope Blogger and Me are both over it!!!

HAPPY 90th BIRTHDAY Prince Phillip, sorry I missed it last Friday.

Last Saturday was Doll Club meeting and we have moved to a new hall, this was our welcome to new premises cake. Very pretty and delicious with a cup of tea. I think all agreed our new hall a great success.

I said this was a catching up post so I have to show my winning entry in the previous Doll club meeting. I received first prize in the Miniature book section with my tiny coronation book which can also be worn on a chain.

Emily wants to show her new bed. This one has ears and a tail and Charlotte has a matching one.

Of course they share my bed at night but the girls like a bed that can be placed to catch the sun in the day.
