The Royal School of Needlepoint was on CBS Sunday Morning a couple of week ago. In case you didn’t see the item, here’s the link to a 6-minute video with a little history & shots of some beautiful needlepoint:

And, you can commemorate the royal wedding by stitching a sampler:

No financial interest . . . I just love that the whole country gets the day off for the wedding! Actually they have a 4-day weekend. I’ve been catching up on my TV this weekend, including the Royal Wedding! Beautiful event, the dress was incredible. I heard that the people doing the hand sewing had to wash their hands every 30 minutes! We should probably take note of that practice.
