Monday! A fresh start to a new week. I was going to sew yesterday during Downton Abbey but ended up just laying on the couch watching it. There was a wonderful show on right before it that was all about the castle where Downton Abbey is filmed. So amazing. If you didn't catch that show, the castle is owned by the Carnarvon family. The Earl of Carnarvon is the man who financed the dig in Egypt where the Tomb of Tutankhamu was found. Of course, he financed it with his wife's money but the "gentry" don't speak of such things.
So, because I'm in an elegant mood from last night, I thought I'd share that my friend Jill, of Fiberluscious, has a wonderful tutorial on her blog today for her elegant pincushion. I'm sure that, if someone at Downton Abbey sewed, they would have a pincushion like this:
HERE. Jill's instructions make it look easy and when I have time, I'm going to try one. Her instructions for fancy stitching are just wonderful too!
Well, I'm off to work. I will work today with visions of this in my head:
