Henry Grace a Dieu: New Project

DSCF1077

My lovely reader Julie sent me a beautiful kit from her stash. I couldn’t resist, and started it 🙂 I’ve been saving pictures of it up to show off, and here it is! The Henry Grace a Dieu was the flagship of King Henry VIII while attending a diplomatic summit with King Francis I in 1520. The site of the summit was named the Field of the Cloth of Gold due to the ridiculous amount of fancy fabrics on display in costumes and tents from the two kings.
