More Christmas Stitching

There have been so many wonderful photographs of Christmas ornaments posted that I have more for you to enjoy, now that the madness of Christmas prep is over and you are sitting down with you feet up before packing away all the decorations and thinking about dieting in 2013.  Check out the bells on this cowgirl!

Dame Judi Dench and Her Embroidery UPDATED

Recently a bit of an old interview with Matthew MacFadyen has started circulating on the World Wide Web again, with the section that talks about Dame Judi Dench and her stitching highlighted. I finally managed to find the original source for you.  Mr. Macfadyen starred in Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightly and Dame Densch and this was a publicity interview after the movie came out in 2005.

The stitching part is at the end, the last two paragraphs.  Sadly, neither of the actors interviewed can describe what the stitching is like except that it is all swear words.  I can't find any photographs, either.  Perhaps she is working one of the Subversive Cross Stitch kits?

UPDATE:  Another news article on her work.  Still no pictures.  :(
