It has become a weekly ritual of mine to make a hot chocolate with marshmellows, snuggle into the couch with a blanket, some stitching and watch the new series Downton Abbey. I am in love with the costumes and settings, the gardens and of course, the drama! I've loved Period drama's since I can remember but was always a closet watcher because it wasn't "the cool thing to watch". Well, it looks like I was just ahead of the game! Now I can suggest all sort s of BBC movies and series to my friends who are so late to discover the wonderful world of romantic and sometimes not so romantic past eras.
Just look at the outfits...
My favorite character so far is Sybil and sorry to spoil it for anyone who hasn't caught the latest episode but the scene where she walked out in her self designed, fashion forward harem pants, exposed ankes and no laced stays (gasp) was classic! Someone needed to pick the snotty old grandmothers jaw off the floor. Check out the gorgeous ensemble..
This is what I stitched while watching tonight.
