How is this for talent!?

Margaret, a 92-year-old knitter from Norfolk in the United Kingdom has impressed royal fans with her incredible homage to the Queen's estate - Sandringham House.

The piece has taken her two years of crafting, and she admits that it is impossible to know how much wool was in the piece but she did work on it for 10 to 12 hours a day.

The finished version of Sandringham Estate is 5.5m by 1.8m and features in the local makers festival.

Speaking to the BBC, Margaret said: "After I lost my husband I joined a knitting group, and it all snowballed from there,"

"And then I just thought, if I can think of something to do that we can show to people, and raise money for a charity, it would be something worthwhile doing. That's how it all started." she continued.

The piece has incredible detail - with even a knitted version on the Queen featured! The Sandringham church and stable also feature.
