Preparing for The Royal Wedding

The whole world must have heard by now that the British Royal Family is having a wedding on April 29th.  How do you plan to celebrate?  Gay Ann Rogers is offering a Stitch In with special designs she has created just for this Royal Occasion.  There is a box top monogram (and a gorgeous silver box to put it in), a variety of scissor fobs, a beautiful royal heart monogram, a fabulous dated monogrammed sewing case for your needles and favorite scissors (and packet to preserve the needles you used on this special day), and of course certificates of your Attendance at The Wedding.  All of the items are available for order on her website, and Gay Ann has even found places for us to buy our own Diana rings on eBay if you wish.  So pick out your most comfy pjs, put on your tiara, and pick up your invitation to join Gay Ann in stitching in celebration.
