Above is a map showing how far MacSoph and I travel: it shows the locations around the world from which people have visited Queendom Website.
Stitching Catherine's Crown
This is in many ways the start of our new year on Queendom Website. The old year ends with the close of E-Week and the new year begins.
I would like to do two things in the New Year: welcome The Year of the Romanovs, Power and Opulence, and also continue The Year of the Stitch.
Do you think we could do both? I'm hoping so.
It is time to stitch Catherine's Crown. I think all the copies must be in your hands by now and it is indeed time to start.
Notes on Historical Fiction
As we head into a year with the Romanovs, I would like to start with DH's article on Historical Fiction.
Although he wrote it with reference to Elizabeth 1, it is a good reminder of the limits of romance novels when we look at historical figures.
Is reading romance novels great entertainment? Of course. But it is perhaps wise to keep in mind some of their limitations.
I hope you will take a couple of minutes to download and read DH's article.
Early next week I will post his first article on Catherine. It is a short look at Catherine's Crown.
