I want you to meet Jane Seymour. Heidi reads about these wives to me as I stitch them. She says this is the one Henry really loved. She died after childbirth. I am starting Catherine of Aragon now. Her hem is just above Jane's head. I now know stitching people is my favorite thing. I will do the rest of the piece but only because I have to to complete it. LOL.

I want to thank Robin over at Bittersweat Punkin for giving me this award. It is called Arte y Pico. I am supposed to follow directions and give it to five other bloggers. Giving it to the five bloggers is no problem, but I just do not know how to make it so you can click on the other blogs from my entry. If I can figure it out Robin, I will do it but in the meantime, I thank you so much for thinking of me. I love your blog and visit you everyday. If you would like to see Robin's blog, go down the right side of mine and you will find her name and can click on it.

Wow, this is going to be gorgeous! And, once again, you are speedy needles. You must have a natural talent for stitching Nancy.

Great progress Nancy. I love the way the figures emerge on your fabric, a bit like developing a photo :>)
Congratulations on your award.
Hugs, Angela

You certainly deserve that award Nancy - you are doing a great job with this project and I like how Heidi has become the narrator for the Royal history!

No, you can't look bad in all hats - you just have to find the correct style to suit your face shape and height, then make sure it fits and pull it down - don't allow it to sit on top of your head! I have a lot of really nice hats as a good friend designed and made beautiful hats for a while - I have a large head so she was able to custom size them which was great. But, must admit, my favorite is probably the soft, worn cotton hat I wear when gardening - I can throw it in the washer without any concerns.

You are a speed demon mother! Okay I am ready to read the next wives' history.

Love and hugs ~

I don't know if he really loved Jane Seymour. By all accounts (that I've come across anyways)she had a special place in his heart because of the son she bore him. Something that none of the others was able to do.

Congrats on the award!!!
