So by now it's old news that Downton Abbey is amazing. Even if you haven't watched the show, you've undoubtedly been told that you "will LOVE it." And it's easy to see why - the characters are expertly crafted. People you love to hate suddenly become sympathetic, and those you love to love start showing the cracks in their facades. As an actor, these are characters I'd take such pleasure in playing. It's beautiful - the costumes and set (did you see that WEDDING!?) are amazingly detailed. And the actors are spot-on. God knows I wouldn't love the Dowager Countess as much if she were played by anyone other than Maggie Smith.
So when Danielle Thompson sent me an email, simply titled "Downton Abbey Patterns," I got really excited. It took me all of two seconds to volunteer to embroider these pretty tea towels as samples for Kitschy Digitals. You can buy the patterns by Heather Davulcu here, and the pretty tea towels here.
These are just works-in-progress shots (hence all the wrinkles). I sent all 15 towels to Danielle at the beginning of this week, and she still has a little something to add to them before photographing them for her site. I can't wait to see the finished product.
