Today I continue to work on my latest needlepoint project, a travel round (hanging ornament), with a Paris theme while I join Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitchers. I was hoping to have the background completed, but alas I was sidetracked by fun stuff!
There was an outing to the local library for a special presentation regarding fashion during the era of the Downton Abbey series.
The show was wonderful. Outfits were modeled and on display. I'm going to highlight two favorites as they involve lots of hand work. A walking suit and a flapper dress from the 1920s.

|Authentic Flapper Dress made with Glass Beads ~ Exquisite!|
If any of Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitchers are Downton fans and have not yet seen the movie, I highly recommend. In closing I'll share a small bouquet of end-of-season flowers from the garden.
Until next time,
