Our family has always thought Mum looks like the queen.
The only one who can't see the resemblance is her.
Though she is 7 years older she is very similar in hairstyle,dress and general appearance.
In this photo of her 21st(in 1939),I think she looks particularly regal.
I downloaded a picture of the queen and cut around it.I added pearl flourishes and embellishments and used Mum's favourite colour-blue.
I tried several times to stitch without the shadow on the left but those fabric brads are too high to flatten it any further.)
I've included 2 more photos of Mum below so you can see it is not "a one off"All she needed on that picnic rug was a corgi to make it complete.
