Charles Diana Wedding Tapestry Finished

My Large Charles and Diana tapestry 18x22 inches is finished and on the wall. The wedding was in 1981 and Diana died 20 years ago. I bought the tapestry on eBay about 8 or 10 years ago and am so pleased with myself for finishing it, once I started it only took about 5 months.
 Even the back doesn't look too bad. I bought the frame from a Salvation Army shop, always a good place to look for odd sized frames, and framed it myself.
 Still a bit of space up near the ceiling so took my life in my hands, dragged in a tall ladder and there it is.
 More space up there though I do like some samplers a bit lower so they can be admired by me.
My very small TV. I am a compulsive royal stitcher and only glance up now and then at TV shows. I can watch a whole movie that way. Sometimes I come home from friend's houses thinking I would love a large TV but I have no space as you can see.

  1. Well done with the tapestry and the back does look good. I didn't realise it was the back at first. I do remember you have have ladder issues so not sure you should be on one but I suppose no one can stop you :)

    Yes a large screen TV would only end up covered in Royal stitching as you would mistake it for blank space when it was off!

  2. Congratulations on a job well done. Tapestry looks terrific framed and in place, not sure about the ladder climbing though.

  3. Well done ! What a work ! I still think you have to buy maybe not a bigger house but just build an exhibition room in your garden !! (with lots of walls)

  4. Have only just seen this post! I would love to cover all our walls with my stitching, but have to share the walls with the Other Half, not to mention a huge tv which if I had my way would be out the door. Your tv is just perfect!
