Henry is crowned!

Finally, I have made Henry happy and finished stitching him - phew!

Now I just need to find a sweet square frame for him.

Thanks to the wonders of the internet, we can actually get to read letters from Elizabeth I to that naughty Thomas Seymour!

Elizabeth I, Queen of England
Autograph letter to Thomas Seymour, Baron Seymour of Sudeley, Lord Admiral of England, signed and dated [Hatfield?]
From Paston & Thane Collections
Summer of 1548

Gives you shivers, doesn't it?

Lizzie and Lizzie's Dad.....

Dear Lizzie has returned from the Framers and I am so pleased with how she turned out.

I chose a triple mount and I am so glad that I did - it came up beautifully!

... and my prediction two week's ago that Lizzie's Dad would be finished in one more evening of stitching was so wrong!  He is still a WIP but I am hopeful that next Tuesday will see him finished!  Fingers crossed.

hugs, Kaye

Lizzies' Dad is nearly done .....

... so, while I hopefully stated in my last post that Henry would be done in one more evening of stitching - well, I was wrong - off with my head! lol!

However, I am hopeful of a finish very soon...

Stay tuned....
