My Longest Reign cross is powering ahead, fun and easy to stitch. Soon I'll start on my favourite part and do some beading.
A recent addition to my collection is this small hand embroidered calendar with 1937 calendar attached.
An unfinished tapestry from Charles and Diana's wedding. I have a large stack of UFO's of my own and now I buy more from eBay to add. This one was a Family Circle design and I might or might not finish it. The red plate is also a Charles and Diana wedding souvenir from my local Salvo's shop.
A handkerchief from the Royal Tour 1949. Cancelled when the King became ill.
A bath towel from the Coronation 1953. Another eBay bargain.
A bedhead that was being tossed out when a store room at my local Senior's hall had to be emptied. I had it in my car in seconds as I need all the display space I can get. It only needed a wash and even the built in light works. Looks so good in my spare room after about fifty years stuck in a store room.
A bush fire on the small island opposite my house. Called a 'suspicious fire' it was left to burn itself out.
The island is named Bull Island because a bull once lived there and a small stone commemorates him. Why he didn't swim across or walk over at low tide no one can tell me!
Another op shop bargain, this red top with Prince of Wales feathers. Looks a bit pink in the pic. but it is bright red. Once again I was in the shop at just the right time. I might even wear it to my Melbourne Cup lunch tomorrow. Teamed with white pants and my blue shoes and hat I will look like a walking flag
No use pleading with me Shibella you need grooming. The hot weather is here and you will get knots so I must brush and comb more than just your pretty face.
Cat lover, collector of British Royalty memorabilia, Anglophile,avid reader and cross stitch addict. Keen op shop, market, collector fairs and ebay shopper. Mother of 2, Grandmother of 2 and now am very sad about the loss off my two Birman cats Charlotte and Emily.
Not very tall, not very slim and more bad hair days than good. Don't like cooking or gardening so recipes and gardening hints will never appear on my blog.
To sum me up, think minimalist, I am the opposite.
