A right royal stitch up

This weekend coming, the Queen and the rest of the country will be celebrating her Diamond Jubilee - not that you needed reminding!
Here in London there is bunting everywhere and I am excited to take a walk down The Mall one night this week to see the final preparations taking place. I thought I would share with you the Jubilee inspired stitchings that have caught my eye...

Lovely cross stitch crown by Delilah from What Delilah Did,  you should also check out her other designs, they are really cute!

This adorable spring bird by Catherine from Bumpkin bears & friends

Beautiful cross stitch cushion by the very talented Emma Bridgewater  - I often find myself swooning over her creations

If you fancy making something yourself, book a class at Sew Over It where they will teach you how to embroidery this memorable tea towel

And finally, Riverdrift House have created this eye catching Diamond Jubilee Sample Cross Stich kit. This pattern certainly makes me want to give cross stitching a go!

I hope you have lots of celebrations planned for the extra extra long weekend!
