Downton Abbey and Sewing
Now I know what you are thinking, there was no quilting in this program.
Sadly, you are correct.
But there was sewing!
The servants did the necessary sewing.
I would love to know who actually did that stitching.
Do you think Cora could really sew? I mean, I like her, I do! Well, most of the time. (When she isn't being hoodwinked by O'Brien.)
But what are her talents? I don't hear her singing, playing an instrument or really anything.
Maybe stitching is her main talent!
In this period soap opera there is at least that, they do more than just drink beverages and change clothes.
I will miss Maggie Smith, she was a hoot! She was at least consistent and had some of the best lines.
Sure she redeemed herself every now and then in the second season but hardly enough to wipe out all her evil doings in the first season.
Plus don't you think it is handy the way that they label the villains? They smoke! Yes, she and Thomas are always puffing away.
This show was probably NOT sponsored by any tobacco companies!
She is doing a little stitching here but probably more plotting!
And how about the moral tale with her?
Whoa, did she pay for her wild oats!
I wonder if there will be more developments with her next season and more importantly, will she sew more?
If you haven't watched Downton Abbey I tried to not put any spoilers in this blog entry.
We will have to wait and see what happens next season, this fall in Britain but not until January for us!
In the meantime, I am going to NYC tomorrow to see plays with friends in the city on Saturday. No quilting adventures but plenty of fun.
