I finished the 68 episodes of “Upstairs Downstairs” (1971-1975). I absolutely fell in love with the series and didn’t want it to end. However, with my Kindle and a nice cup of hot “Tiger Eye Tea“, I started watching Season 1 of “Downton Abbey” and I am already hooked.
It will take me a while to catch-up with the new “Downton” episodes airing now, but I can savor each episode like I did with “Upstairs Downstairs” . I have seasons 1-3 to view before I will allow myself to watch the newer episodes.
The series, set in the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey, depicts the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the post-Edwardian era,during the reign of King George V—with the great events in history having an effect on their lives and on the British social hierarchy.
I just can’t seem to get enough of these British period dramas. It is hard to imagine that people live/lived in such opulence while others serve you and your every whim.
With Valentine’s Day in mind, though I don’t need any more crocheted items, I crocheted this colorful heart.
I found the chart online
and it can be found here along with other heart charts
(UPDATE: It has been pointed out to me that the link to the heart cannot be accessed due to the page having too many redirects. It worked fine yesterday, but I am not, and I suspect nor are others, willing to accept 3rd party cookies to access the site. Therefore, I took the link down. Sorry for any inconvenience).
I used Lily’s Sugar ‘N Cream Cotton and crocheted the edging different on my heart than what the chart suggested.
Last, but not at all least…
…our sweet, little Luna keeping an eye on the situation.
Carry on, Luna.
