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.

My Story of Victoriana
My World of Needlework
March is marching along, who knew what a tumultuous time 2020 would be!
So what have I been doing?
Stitching up a storm. It seems like the very best way to stay calm and collected.
For Chapter 1, Notes on My Portrait of Queen Victoria, click on the photo of Victoria above.
I have not forgotten about finishing my Victoriana Series, but I keep bumping off working on it. I will return to it soon as I have met some small deadlines (like Hearts)
Several days ago on Counted Needlepoint Nation I posted this photo of Elizabeth 1 Armada Portrait with a link to Mary Beard's short discussion of the portrait. This is actually one of three Armada Portraits currently on display across the pond.
Click on the link below to hear Mary Beard's comments about Elizabeth 1:
Click on the link above and you will be transported to the group. Request an invitation to join and answer a handful of questions (favorite stitch, favorite thread, etc.) and one of the admins will approve you.
Nancy Holub is the head of the group, and some of you may recognize the admins: Kate Gaunt, Kate Fletcher, Arlene Sheras and Jane Wood (the head of Needlepoint Nation).
Nancy made me a 'moderator' but I'm not sure what a 'moderator' does. It is all so new and exciting! In time I will find out.
Colors, patterns and of course pearls are influencing me right now, as I return to Tudor sources of design, a nice distraction from the world around us.
March on Queendom Website is Marching Along
Here's a bit of a surprise, a small Echoes, Tudor Rose and all. I was cleaning up and found it aout half-stitched and straight away I finished it. Mini Echoes.
