Latest Diamond Jubilee kit to arrive is this design from Bothy Threads. I think it will be easier and more fun to stitch than it looks. The charts are easty to follow with a seperate chart for the backs stitch. Beads and sequins are included to give a bit more sparkle. I bought my kit on the net from http://www.artsanddesigns.com/ their service and prices are first class and they take paypal.
Also from Artsanddesigns is this John Clayton kit of the Queen. I've made a start on this one but am very tempted to put it aside and do the Bothy Threads first. Twilleys have also just released a very pretty Jubilee design, I think I must have that one too. Picture bottom right. I want to screeeeeeeaaaaaaaam, am i the only one having trouble with blogger's new format??? Words and pictures all over the place**^*^^##** Next is Tempest Tapestry which would be finished but I am waiting for blue wool. Is there no blue wool #8684 in this country. I feel I am living in the colony of 200 years ago when all the blue wool was taken for British Army uniforms. I don't dare start a new paragraph as my whole blog might vanish. Picture on left is my 3rd prize certificate from Doll Club last Saturday. The section was'a set of coasters' and I entered my Silver Jubilee set I bought from a garage sale years ago. I also won Easter chocs. in the raffle but ate them before I remembered to take a photo. Yes I did share. I am about to press publish, as they say in the classics.......Publish and be damned......here goes.
