70 years ago today in London the Royal Couple were about to announce their Engagement and in November this year they will celebrate their 70th Wedding Anniversary. A family member had saved this newspaper and though a bit yellow and fragile it is now in my collection. The date on the paper is 10th July 1947 and price is tuppence. The weather forecast for 70 years ago,top left hand corner is exactly the same as the weather today.
Twenty years since the tragic death of Diana. So this is the year I must finish this tapestry.
Found this little cross stitch in my Unfinished stash so it was easy to finish and make myself feel good about completing something.
Another tapestry for the Coronation found on eBay. Worked in tiny Tent tapestry stitching it had been made into a cushion but I like it in a frame. I've never seen this design before so how many more Royal tapestries are out there waiting for me to find them?
Now a new just released book. Full instructions enclosed for all the designs, no knitting involved only winding yarn around.
All royal family members are there waiting to be made.
The Queen with grt. grandchildren included. I somehow think I would not be any good at making these dolls but it is a fun book to have in my collection.
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.
