Henry

Just a simple title, it says it all!!
Here he is with 4 of his wives (well you can only see 3 in this photo!)
And his poor wives....... none of them have any bottom halves yet!! Catherine Howard doesn't even have a mouth !!
I intend to do the top half of each wife then roll the frame down to do the bottoms!!
I do think it is looking splendid though!! And no mistakes this week!!

I also have another finish on my list! This evening I finished Lizzie Kate's Housework. I will show that on my next post. I also worked on Wedding Row last night and have been hurrying to finish the Popcorn bear for Becki's card.

I must spend some time soon making these cards up, I haven't yet made the Silver Wedding card up and we go to the party on Saturday.

That's it for now, just a brief posting as I'm trying to get my ironing done and I'm looking out for the Tesco van with my grocery delivery!!

Fantastic stitching, and after all the wives don't have their bottom halves yet, but one or two lost their heads!!!

henry is looking most regal. It always amazes me how wide he was.... just as well he was a king or he would have never afforded clothes to fit.

really enjoying your blog ginnie

I love it!! I especially love the pattern for the names - very fancy but still easy to read. Keep up the good work!

WOW Jayne Henry is looking amazing, It puts me in mind of my grandad every time I see it not because he looked like Henry but because he used to do tapestry and also did one of Henry and his wives amongst many others.
Happy stitching
Hugs Shellie

Henry is looking lovely and his wives are too (Henry would probably be ok if some of them didn't have mouths :). It is fun to watch this piece come to life!

Such pretty progress on Henry and the wives.
Grocery delivery? That's awesome! I wish we had that here:)

Phew! Thought I would have missed Henry lol.
looks fantastic. I cant help thinking that if a few of his wives really had not have had mouths, they may have kept their heads lol.
It is so detailed, you must be very proud of it.
lol
