While I was watching Downton Abbey Part 4

"Happy Monday" Friends!

First I would like to say Thank You to all the lovely participants in the "Grow your Blog" event who have stopped by my blog and have left wonderful comments, joined the give-away and/or became followers. It was quite a wonderful event.

It was a good thing that I had a day of Saturday during this event, because let me tell you, I couldn't stop browsing around all the lovely blogs on the list. I spend hours looking at all that loveliness. The only thing that kept me going was a cup of coffee or two. So many beautiful crafts and so much color. There will be quite a few new blogs that I will follow and enjoy. What a lovely way to get to know new and interesting people, and I am glad to be part of it.

So with that said, it is a good thing I got any kind of crochet done at all. But I did. I did cheat a little bit and worked on the shawl in between shows when I had a little time. Last night while watching Part 4 of the show, I finished the shawl itself. So now all I have left is the border and I hope I will be able to finish it during next weeks show and than have a big Ta-Ta.

This is the center of the shawl.
The shawl itself is crocheted in two directions, from the 
center out.

With that it gave this nice center affect. It looks
a bit like a flower.

There is quite a bit of controversy going on around my favorite show. Many people are complaining about the changes. I personally say, change is good. With one of the favorite characters leaving last season, it left a hole. They also brought in a story line that is not very popular. I don't want to say what that is, as I don't want to be a spoil sport to those who haven't seen it yet, but I think bad things happen to good people and it is interesting to watch how people will deal with these problems. Enough said. I will continue to be a loyal fan of the show.

As always wishing you a wonderful day from my neck of the woods. Until next time......


  1. I love Downton Abbey and I haven't been able to see it yet this year.
    :( I don't know what is going on at all. I hope to be able to purchase shows on Amazon soon. I have been watching Cranford. Have you ever seen it? I am enjoying it so far. Some folks from Downton Abbey are in it.

    Your crocheting is quite beautiful. I have to admit, it makes me a bit envious because I cannot do anything so pretty. I wish I could, but I think I lack the patience and the ability to keep track of the patterns.

    Hope you are having a wonderful week.


  2. Thanks for coming to visit me Bird and also for the lovely compliments.
    By the way, I don't think I would have the patients to craft what you do either. Your things are absolutely wonderful.

    Yes I have watched Cranford and loved that show as well. If you want you don't have to wait to watch Downton Abbey on Amazon. Just go to and you can see it there.

    Till next time

  3. the shawl looks like it will be gorgeous. I'm not a fan on Downton Abbey, I've never even seen an episode! I'm starting to think maybe I should...

    the blog hop was great, but I'm still going!

  4. I embroidery while watching movies & watching Downton Abbey!

  5. What a lovely stitch for a shawl. Yes I have been watching D.A as well whilst I crochet. The unpleasant story line is indeed unpleasant; however, the show is a drama so I suppose they have to throw that in. I'm still upset about Mathew...
