I managed to finish the table runner I showed in my last post with a few days to spare before Mother's Day!
Putting it out there on my blog turned it into a challenge to myself to get it finished.
It wasn't a very big project afterall, and I had some help from these ladies:
Cranford is a five part mini series starring Judi Dench that was aired on PBS a few years ago. It is based on the writings of Elizabeth Gaskell, and takes place in the 1840's in the small town of Cranford, England. If you are a fan of English costume drama, I highly recommend you check it out. The acting is superb, the story is sweet yet filled with drama, and the attention to detail for the time period is a treat for the eyes
If you were a fan of Downton Abbey you'll find a familiar face in the character of Captain Brown who played Downton's Carson the butler. Another familiar face to any Harry Potter fans is Miss Pole, who played Hogwart's Professor Umbridge. Miss Pole is the busybody of Cranford and provides the comic relief.
I may just have to purchase this DVD rather then rely on borrowing it from the library. Who knows when another sewing deadline will be aided along toward the finish by such a proper group of ladies? Thankfully, there is also a two part sequel entitled Return to Cranford which is just as enjoyable.
