Queen's Diamond Jubilee

Have edited this post so I could put in better photos which my husband Greg took he takes better ones than me lol


I am posting not crafts but something a bit different well it is craft but not by me.
A Lady (Kathy Bowman) near me has decorated her front garden for the coming Diamond Jubilee this week-end.
Our Queen came to the throne in 1952 & had her Coronation June 1953 so this week-end is a extra long week-end for us in the UK we have the Monday & Tuesday off.
Just to say that 1st is also my DH 60th birthday so it is his diamond birthday lol
The lady has knitted most of the dolls clothes or the dolls she said she had great pleasure doing it over the winter what more is there than getting pleasure from what you do
She has on the tier (2nd photo) "Proud to be British"
Happy Jubilee to our Queen 
So here are the photos I took

What great pictures. She is proud to be British and I love it when people are proud to be their nationality. I find Canadians are not as proud as we should be. Thanks for sharing.
