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.


  1. You have so much patience for that cross stitching! It's looking wonderful!

    Hope you are having some lovely weather ~ we are starting to get some hot finally!! :)

    xo Catherine

  2. The x-stitch is looking fabulous! Did you want to do mine when you're done lol.

    Love the panels too. A wonderful edition to any Royal collection, especially the coronation one. Very nice pick up!


  3. Patience is not a strong enough word - I am exhausted just looking at the photo. Keep up the good work.

  4. Wow, that comes out very well ! I since yesterday I have less the blues, being back, and we had a heat ! impossible 38° and not the slightes breeze ! I thought I would melt and only leave a little hill of bones, grease and hairs ! Today I need a furcoat, we have 15°, lol ! Poor Arthur doesn't know anymore where to sleep !

  5. Am sure the x-stitch would be fabulous when it's finished. Wow, those panels and coronation fabric are certainly precious!

  6. The cross stitch will be wonderful when it's finished. K and W are coming to visit Canada this weekend and my daughter-in-law is going to Ottawa to see them.

  7. Nice to hear from you, Sylvia, I thought you had problems publishing, I do, all kind of problems lately, I've installed the Google Chrome now.
    Lovely cross stitching, must be a lot of work !
    Hugs to you, Charlotte and Emily !
