I finished stitching Primrose's birth sampler and framed it up a couple of weeks ago. The pattern is Beatrix Potter Birth Sampler 1 which I stitched 1 over 2 on 40ct white linen using the recommended DMC threads although I changed up the charted blue tendrils and the font to pink. I also changed the font. Mummy loved it - Primrose just grinned at me! Thank you to Pamela who loaned me the chart.
She's a very happy child!
Last weekend we went to Dover Castle which is about 9 miles from us. We met up with Meg - number 2 grand-daughter - seen here with her Grandad. It was a cold and dull day but we throughly enjoyed our visit. The wartime tunnels are amazing. We aim going again when the weather improves.
A view across the English Chanel from the roof top of the castle.
Meg took a picture of the reigning King and Queen ;-) Shame that the Queen's feet didn't reach the floor! How come the King had a footstool? And next time I shall wear my golden crown!
Thanks for visiting
