Quilt Market, Andover Fabrics, the Exclusive Downton Abbey Collection

I had a few moments yesterday to scan through more of the news coming out Fall 2013 Quilt Market. How can we possibly absorb all the great fabrics, designs and notions. Good Grief! Not enough hours in the day.  One of my favorite television series is Downton Abbey, no secret there. Scanning through the new Andover Fabric line absolutely transports you to Highclere Castle. (well,  not really but what the heck...some literary license here!)andover fabrics

So I wanted to direct you to a U-Tube video that just aired from Saturday featuring the Downton Fabric  projects, the series costume designer and set designers. It runs a little over 30 minutes and has some audio quirks but interesting and informative.

So, pour yourself a cup of something nice and enjoy. Andover Fabric Downton Abbey Fabric Collection.

Monday Musings ,
  • I don't have a bucket list, really, I am not sure if  that is a good thing or a bad thing.
  • I am already miserably cold, it is only October, it is going to be a long winter. 
  • Watching all these "picker" shows leads me to wonder.....who buys all this junk?"
  • In the same vein, aren't those "collectors" really just hoarders?
  • Continuing with that train of thought, if  you have more than 6 sewing machines, more or less, does that make you a hoarder?
  • What about sewing/quilting tools, is that hoarding or obsession?
  • If the royal baby was named George and had common parents, would he be that cute?
  • Is there anybody out there? (X-Files) 
  • Speaking of old television shows I wish they would bring back: All Creatures Great and Small, Moonlighting, X-Files, and The Sonny and Cher Show. 
  • that's all.
