I'm not a big Royalist but we have a Royal Family, they bring alot of money in via tourism and the alternative is that man and SamCam as President and First Lady - give me a couple of octogenarians any day!
The stitching magazines have featured a number of Royal Wedding Samplers recently and none have tempted me, although I nearly stitched the bunting from Cross Stitcher. Then I saw this picture in the newspaper of the artwork by Stephen Raw of Carol Ann Duffy's poem. Wouldn't this make a lovely sampler on a piece of hand-dyed fabric. I feel quite inspired now. Anyone recommend a fabric in these colours?
