In the wee hours of the morning before press coverage starts, I'm about to get some shut-eye but wanted you to wake up to a freebie in case you would like to commemerate the historic event.
Please give credit to Feathers in the Nest as it is copyrighted.
I will be on a commute to work tomorrow but will be sure to catch the many re-runs over the weekend!

This will be available only through the weekend.

The colors I chose are:

Crescent color cotton--Rosey Glow-very light pinkish rose
Cresent Colors cotton--Chili Pepper, for bright red
Weeks Dye Works--Celedon--green
Weeks Dye Works--Navy-- the darkest of blue
Crescent color cotton--Garden Trellis for the silver on engagement ring and key
Crescent Color Cotton--Deep Blue Sea--the lighter muted blue
Gentle Art- Gold Leaf---all gold color

I am stitching on Antique White linen and the colors look gorgeous against the antique white.

I have started stitching and will post pics of progress as I go this weekend if all goes well. I have finished row one. This is a band sampler with British colors and the emphasis of the sweet moment of becoming a princess!

It's loaded in my Needlepoint 4 system frame now awaiting a fun weekend to watch and rewatch the sweet ceremony  and stitch my heart out.

Remember to grab a copy this weekend for free in celebration.
