Whether or not you are patriotic we can all agree that 70 years on the throne is something to be celebrated! Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the first-ever monarch to reach the Platinum Jubilee milestone. This beautiful pair of cross stitch charts to celebrate the occasion were designed by Jenny Barton. The first is a detailed stitch of the crown jewels surrounded by an intricate border, stitched in metallic gold. The second design features the Queen herself within a ribboned frame. Both designs contain text which indicates the celebration - making them fabulous commemorative pieces.


These patterns are for intermediate stitchers who are familiar with this craft, however, if you are an advanced beginner who has all the techniques down these would be a wonderful challenge for you. If you need a hand with any stitching check out our cross stitch for beginners guide for more information and helpful tips. We have a fab guide to needle sizes too, should you need it.
