First Finish Of 2013...

Good Monday morning, dear friend, and thanks for stopping by on this rather yucky New England start to another week. The weather up here has been rather odd, even for an area of the country known for wacky weather, with rain and fog everywhere! Yuck!

Anyhoo...

It was a good weekend to stay inside and stitch, which is just what I did...and put a finish to my "Downton Abbey ABC Sampler"




My assistant and model...



A close up...



I still giggle every time I look at poor Mr. Pamuk...what a cad!

Speaking of Downton, did you watch last night's episode? Poor Edith, my heart just broke for her!

But, alas...

I also spent some time catching up on Blue Ribbon Designs "A Little Quakeresque"...





I love the WDW "Twilight."

I want to thank both Pa and the NFL for the opportunity to stitch, most of the weekend, without guilt.

I bid you farewell with a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck, and perhaps a stitch or two for good measure.

Hugs

What a great finish. And I love the Blue Ribbon Design you are working on too. I've never watched Downton Abbey but I may have to check it out.

LOVElovelove! The Mr. Pamuk is so funny!

I haven't watched Downton yet, I think I'll wait until it becomes available online somewhere with a few epis in queue so I can enjoy a few hours at a time! :D

Love your new project! Just beautiful!

I LOOOOOOOOOOVE it, Lucy! (In my Ethel voice.) ;-)

Would you believe I've not watched even one episode? I can't wait to get caught in the frenzy!

I like how the BRD is looking

Robin said...

Love the pillow. Poor Mr. Pamuk. Yes, I wanted to cry for Edith last night. Poor thing. Talk about a cad! Leaving her at the altar.

You are making great progress on your BRD. I think I hadve 6 or 8 little motifs left and my mojo for the pattern has gone out the window. You may finish before me!

Pretty pieces. I never watch the show so I know nothing of it! Oh and your model is doing a stellar job!

Marjo said...

Great first finish. I love the WDW's Twilight as well. Football is great for stitching, I must agree.

Maggee said...

Congrats on your Downton Abbey finish! I should have my first finish of the year tonight! Dang frog visited me last night due to imposter thread in my floss bag! Didn't notice it till I started stitching last night, dang it! Poor poor Edith! She must have something good happen to her eventually! Hugs!

Joy said...

It looks great!

Love it! I'm thinking of making a Downton piece for my parents, but I might end up keeping it. I hope you gave your model a special treat, great job!

Congratulations on the finish, I love it! I finally watched the second episode last night (thanks to the DVR) and OMG, poor Edith, she just can't seem to get things to work out for her.
