Above is the map of how far Queendom Website has traveled,

nice for MacSoph and me, but doubly nice because it shows that needlework is indeed alive and well right round the world.

Serious Work on Queen Kits

I have taken some time for serious work on Queen Kits.

I'm working on all Four, Elizabeth, Catherine, Eleanor, Victoria.

The Queens' Bodice Hearts so far,

Heart of Elizabeth,

and Eleanor's Heart.


Victoria has a heart now, and hopefully Catherine will have one soon.




Because I made six Imperial Jeweled Hearts, I didn't make a Bodice Heart for Catherine.


Instead I made Purple Catherine Heart on the left.


Now I will stitch Catherine's Bodice Heart.




On the left are my two miniatures and the photo shows the whole miniature portrait.


On the left: Bess of Hardwick, on the right,

Mary, Queen of Scots.

Below: all my Imperial Jeweled Hearts.

When I was stitching Catherine the Great, DH gave me a beautiful book on Imperial Russia's Jewels and as a result, I made the six Imperial Jeweled Hearts.


I loved making all six and am still intrigued by them, so now I'm thinking, I'd love to make two more. The question is which should I make?  Amethyst? Malachite? Turquoise? Amber?

#4 Diamonds, #5 Aquamarines, #6 Sapphires


Now I will add to the collection as time permits.
