Mary Queen of Scots Draw Winner

Thank you to everyone who joined in the fun of the Boxing Day Draw. This was a mega draw and a half! There is no loneliness at all in not winning. In fact some of those who didn't win are either related to Mary or to James Hepburn, Earl of Bothwell - so in that respect you are in very good company indeed. For those of you who may not know, the panel with Mary's octagon can be seen at Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk. It is worked in cross stitch with coloured silks on canvas. The central monogram reads MARIA STVART and just visible around the border is the motto: Sa vertu matire a near anagram of Marie Stuart. I just thought those may be inspiring thoughts for you in view of the next exciting post coming up shortly tonight. So, time to announce a winner of the 2 decks of Mary Queen of Scots cards ......Congratulations Elizabeth in Australia! But do keep watching tonight as there is a major announcement coming up....
