Long Live(d) the Queen!

September 9, 2015

MBG's Counted Thread Coronation Sampler 1953

Our Queen’s overtaken Victoria,
Hence the media’s sudden euphoria.
For 63 years,
Seven months she’s heard cheers:
In excelsis, Elizabeth, Gloria!

poem © Celia Warren 2015

Today, Queen Elizabeth II breaks the record, formerly held by her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria, as the longest reigning monarch in British history. This beautiful counted-thread embroidery my mother sewed in celebration of the queen’s coronation.

      Thank you, Doda! Written almost 1200 limericks to date! If I’m not careful it could become an obsession!
