Royal Cross Stitch

Following yesterday's Engagement I thought it would be a good time to show you a recent thrifty car boot find. I had seen this cross stitch during the Summer and regretted not buying it once leaving the sale. However, we returned a few weekends ago and lo and behold the stallholder still had it for sale (probably due to generally grubby nature, boring frame and decidedly Royal content). So I snapped it up for 7.50euro - a total bargain for such a large piece - and I love the colours too - just a little clean and a new frame and it will look great!

Firstly, I'm so glad Louis is home, you must be so relieved. And you have certainly got lots of christmas spirit, I love your new decorations, especially the paper chains. I think your cross stitch was a bargain, it is a lovely design
