I love Downton Abbey. I make no secret of it and I adore the characters, both Upstairs and Down. I was making sketches of the characters in my notebook and on the iPad using the Paper App, when I started posting them to Facebook to my friends.
Not soon after, my friend Pokey asked me if I wanted to be part of the PBS series Quilting Arts.
So here are the Upstairs Ladies of Downton, made for my segment on Quilting Arts. How about you? Are you a Downton fan?
I love, love, love the blog called Happy Zombie, who is also known as Monica Solorio-Snow, a quilter and fabric designer extraordinaire. When she posted this blog post (CLICK HERE TO READ THE AWESOMENESS) it spoke to me in such a way that I could not resist. I’m also a fan of Parks And Recreation, a really funny TV show, and I also happen to love Aziz Ansari as a comedian. But the idea of “treating yourself” could not have come to me, via Monica, at a better time.
But what HAVEN’T I got to do lately? Treat my (yo?) self. To sewing. So I sat in my studio one crazy busy weekend afternoon and made this.
Thanks for the inspiration Monica!
I love the X-Men. I have collected comics since I was 10. I now work in the comic book industry. So why has it taken me so long to make these? I don’t know!
Nightcrawler, the mutant who can teleport!
Kitty Pryde, my all time favorite, the girl who can walk through walls!
Wolverine and Storm are still on the worktable.
Play him off, Keyboard cat!!!
Oh, the internet… I love this cat video. It’s silly and annoying after about 3 minutes. But it’s soooo darn catchy!
That MUST be why I had to make my own, right? This month’s weekly quilt theme is “Meme Cats”. More next week!
