Less than a week to go now.... and all the flags are out in the villages around here, looking especially festive. I was in the Red Cross Shop in Dorking this morning and the news was that there has been a run on pre-enjoyed wedding dresses since all the girls are buying them up for the street parties! And there is just time to buy your official Wedding Sampler Kit from the Royal School of Needlework. This beautiful whitework sampler features four flowers of romance, bordering the names of William and Catherine and the date, topped and tailed with a crown and a depiction of St Andrews University, where they met. The sampler is worked in single strand coton a broder on white Irish linen using a variety of classic whitework stitches. All materials and fully illustrated instructions are supplied in the kit, including the design template. To read more or order, click here.
