Good Morning Friends!
Well, I am a huge fan of Downton Abbey and I have really enjoyed curling up on the couch in my quilt of the week, every Sunday night, to watch what the beloved characters of Downton Abbey are up to.
Upstairs, downstairs, I love them all. I was so put out that Dan Stevens (Matthew) left the show that I almost quit it. However...I was soon over my snit about that and engaged in the next season.
I miss Lady Sybil. She was by far the one closest to my heart with her causes, her forward thinking-break out of the box-I have an attitude but I am soft too, character. She was always dressed in my favourite colours. I often wonder what the show would have been like had she stayed. At the time she was, in my opinion, the only thing left on the show that was redeeming about it. oh well...
As a matter of fact I have ordered the Downton Abbey fabrics and will make up a quilt that showcases all of the ladies' fabric colours. Then I will really be ready for season 5 when it rolls around.
So about the title. I have named my longarm Lady Mary. Why you ask? Well, since I have had this monster in the studio, I think I've learned that she has a mind of her own, and a steel will. If I don't get things just right, she will not cooperate. Just like Lady Mary! Adjustments are always being made, by me, not her!
This quilt was made for my daughter and her husband for Christmas 2 years ago. I quilted it on my domestic machine. Things have gotten a lot easier with the longarm!
I went outside to walk the dog a while ago and I think I hear the birdsong ramping up. They must like the above freezing temperatures that we are having! Yay! Spring can't be far off!
