Downton Abbey finish

I do not know about anyone else, but I am COMPLETELY and totally enthralled with Downton Abbey. I recently watched it via Netflix with their online streaming service and I couldn't stitch during it, as it was so good. I was sad that it ended and went online to PBS's online store and ordered it immediately and it came in the mail on Monday. I decided to stitch a freebie that I found online to commemorate the series. I am also thinking about getting out the pen and paper and making my own sampler when the second season comes out. I'm hoping it's soon, as this series is awesome and I really don't have any patience, LOL! :)

At any rate, here's what I started last night and finished today at my Wednesday stitching at Stitcher's Paradise today:

Design: Downton Abbey

Designer: Tanya Marie Anderson The Sampler Girl

Fabric: 32 count antique white linen of unknown manufacturer

Fibers: Au Ver a Soie Soie d' Alger 7-strand silk floss in 1425, 1844 and 2934

Accouterments: Crown and Key brass charms from By Jupiter!

Errata: Stitched one silk thread over two linen threads due to thickness of the silk.

Well, I best be off. Need to put some stuff up and get ready for dinner tonight. Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! :)


Respectfully submitted,

I have to agree with you about Downton Abbey. When I first watched it, i agonized over what was going to happen to all the characters. Then I found out they were going to be doing another season and I was thrilled. Let us all know when it comes out, just in case I miss it.

Happy Stitching

I've never heard of the series, but the design is cool, especially the little charms.

@Nick: It is a really, really good show. You know a show is good when you spend more time watching it than you do stitching, LOL! :)

And thank you for the compliments! :)

I loved the series too and am avidly awaiting the second. Your piece is just gorgeous. Well done on such a quick finish and can't wait to see what you design yourself.
