Queen Victoria crocheting … Monarch of the United Kingdom of Britain & Ireland …from 20 June 1837 until her death in 1901…from 1 May 1876, she used the additional title of Empress of India …
“During Victoria’s reign, knitting & crochet experienced a dramatic resurgence in popularity. Well-bred girls were expected to learn how to knit.
And here’s a really important development we can all thank her for: because middle and upper class people were interested in knitting, we began to see some of the first formal documentation of how things should be made. That’s patterns, ladies and gentlemen. The first printed patterns.
Queen Victoria promoted the fiber arts throughout her life. Shetland knitted lace became extremely popular in England when Queen Victoria fell in love with it.
Late in life, Queen Victoria crocheted eight special “Scarves of Honor” to be presented as awards to British forces fighting in South Africa. Some believed this special honor to be the equal of, or even a rank above the Victoria Cross. ”

Valerie’s and my words were “taco/cat” and she said “chihuahua” and I’m laughing so hard at the idea of someone being unable to describe a chihuahua and calling it a taco cat
my flirting technique.
when you unzip a guys pants while he has a boner does it pop up immediately like a wack-a-mole or does it slowly rise like dracula from his coffin
neither. the penis does not exist until you summon it through a series of mystic chants and riverdancing
i worry about the people on here sometimes
I love literature and I love soot sprites.
The soot sprite was a last minute add-on. I thought it was better than an apple.
