Queen Margrethe Stitches

Denmark's Queen Margrethe II apparently does a lot of ecclesiastical needlepoint.  The Loudoun Sampler Guild has a brief article with photos of her latest antependium, which is a textile hanging for the front of an altar or lectern.  Queen Margrethe apparently does quite a bit of needlepoint for various Danish churches and also paints.

Nice to know the first reigning female monarch in Denmark since the 14th Century is a needlepointer like us.
