|Laura tells the story as she navigates between the two towns.|
When I first started my blog I had been watching Lark Rise to Candleford on the T.V. This wonderful show told the stories of two communities in England . The 19th century is alive once again with a history lesson of that time in England with Laura's story.
This program is rich with characters that make you laugh and cry at the events of their lives.The show leaves you with such a warm feeling. If ever you want a T.V show that makes you wish for another era this is for you. I am so glad they're showing reruns on Sunday nights again.
Lark Rise is one town and Candleford is another town and Laura is the young girl who tells the stories of these people as she delivers the mail between the two communities. My favorite person is Dorcas a little bit of a busy body. I also love Thomas Brown's character that is funny in his bible thumping zeal. You can't help but love him.
This is an adaptation of the books by Flora Thompson I love this show and even though it was cancelled It was beloved by many like me.If you can't find it on the T.V you can see the episodes on u tube.I know someone else besides me can appreciate this wonderful show.
Friday I was hooking all day on one of my rugs and had such a nice time at a friends. We hooked away and since I had no animals distracting me I got a lot done. Today it has been drizzling all day so it's Christmas stocking time. All day as the rain pounded against the window I sewed one sequin at a time on Baby Jacks stocking.
Thank goodness for the rain I kept the fire going and just sewed by hand the Christmas stocking's little sequins which goes so slowly!I sewed the beads on the Train wheels that took forever! I hand sewed the sequins on the tree and even my husband was shocked how long it takes. My hands are not clumsy hands but it’s extremely hard to hold these little beads and sequins and sew them!
It's hard keeping a family tradition of Christmas stocking for new family members using beads and sequins that have the look of the 1950's.
