CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY RIVERDRIFT HOUSE
In the designer's own words:
“This is Queen Elizabeth II’s country retreat, set in a 20,000 acre estate close to the north Norfolk coast. The Queen has spent every Christmas here since her father, King George VI, died here in 1952.
Here is part of this beautiful house adorned for the festive season ready for the gathering of the family. Included are some Norfolk Black turkeys, always supplied by one of the Estate farms to the Queen for a traditional Christmas dinner. ”
Creative Poppy says:
We like the "indoor/outdoor" idea of this cross stitch pattern. You can look at the design as a landscape, with the brightly lit-up castle in the background and deer and turkeys roaming in the snow-covered park with partriges perched on the pear trees.
Or you can see it as an indoor scene, with a miniature castle like a doll's house on the mantlepiece, mistletoe dangling from the ceiling and the royal family's Christmas stockings hanging above the fireplace.
