Lizzie's Dad....

Well, I thought that after spending so much time on Lizzie recently, I should pay some attention to her Dad.  So, I picked up this mini Henry Viii pattern which the wonderful Jo, from Serendipitous Stitching, sent to me last year sometime.  Thank you, dear Jo.

This was originally a kit but, of course, Jo had already stitched it so there is just the pattern with the Legend saying only colours not specific floss, so I was able to choose my own fabric and floss. I am stitching on 28ct French Country Spring green fabbie with assorted DMC threads but I have substituted a gold metallic thread for Henry's hat and chain.  I am so pleased with how quickly this has stitched up - this is only one evening of stitching:

So, if all goes according to plan - next Tudor Tuesday should see Henry all crowned, too!

I hope that all of you are enjoying all things Tudor, 

hugs, Kaye
