Right Royal Stitching

We spent a very "royal" evening . . . in front of the TV - along with the other 2 billion viewers - watching "the" royal wedding last night - having our own little wedding party. While the boys watched with us under sufferance, Kelly got into the spirit of things, glamming up for the occasion, complete with tiara!

We enjoyed tea . . .

and scones with jam and cream.

And in keeping with the Englishness of the evening, and since weddings mean hearts, I stitched this little Union Jack heart from the Cross Stitcher magazine.

What a lovely couple. I thought the bride looked beautiful. I loved the elegant look of her dress, which looked like it could have come from another era. I thought the bridesmaid was very elegant and regal as well. The groom and best man scrubbed up alright, too. And, from a quilter's perspective, I loved the tiled floor of Westminster Abbey . . . here's a link, if you're interested.

Pattern: Union Jack Heart
Designer: Lucie Heaton
Publication: Cross Stitcher Magazine - Issue 236
