I thought Matthew MacFadyen was brilliant in the first episode. I was so thrilled when I heard he was going to be in it! I think he belongs in period films. ;)

I've also got "hooked" on crocheting again. I haven't crocheted much in years, except the fingerless gloves I made this winter, but now we've started crocheting every week with the lady who taught us how and now I can't stop. I'm on my second doily and now I've started this cardigan:
Oh well...it's fun! :)
Here's a sneak peek at one of the things I was up to today....

Yay! I'm so excited about this one! I have almost everything I need to make it now except buttons for the coat and vest. But I have vest fabric and a second hand leather coat I'm remaking into a piratey coat. I still need to buy fabric for his pants though.

I love this redingote:
Reminds me of the dark blue one in The Duchess.

I'm sure one of these days I'll make some costumes from it. For now I'll just enjoy every bit of the DVD. I'm not only in love with the costumes. The cinematography is AMAZING. The score is beautiful. The acting is suburb.
Alright, I'll stop gushing. :) But I am one happy girl today.

I got the top stitching done last week and sewed the rest of the bodice together today.
I'm loving the 100% linen. :)
It lays so nicely. In these pictures it's all pressed, but I think I love it when it's fresh out of the dryer and has a wavy wrinkle to it. (I'm just weird that way)
