Who doesn't like Downton Abbey?
Well I love it, and most of all I love the Dowager Countess.
This photo is all over facebook and I just have to share it with you.
I signed up for "Downton Abbey Mystery Quilt Along" which started in November 2013,
had no chance to start mine until late February, having a guest in the house for two months, no time for sewing.
I love the quote from the Dowager Countess, when Cora's mother was visiting from USA (Shirley MacLaine).:
"No guest should be admitted without the date of their departure being known".
There are so many brilliant quotes from her, like:
"Parenting is difficult even when you like the child".
"I am a woman, Mary. I can be as contrary as I choose".
"Of course it would be a foreigner. No Englishman
would dream of dying in someone else's house".
These are just a few I could think of for now.
This is the fabric for the DA quilt.
and some of my blocks.
Oh yes one more quote:
"I was right about my maid. She's leaving - to get married!!!
How could she be so selfish?"
Well that is all for today.
Enjoy life, it is so beautiful.
