Any U.S. Downton Abbey Fans?

Christmas Day Special ~ Masterpiece Theater's British drama set in 1912, continuing Season 1, check your local PBS for air time.  I do believe it'll be an evening broadcast. 

A tease from the DailyMail/UK HERE.  

Huh?  What in the heck is that whacky Sweet Sue talkin about this time?

Get familiar HERE.
Don't thank me... you did all the work again this Christmas didn't you?
Steep your tea, feet up, stitch, enjoy!

Then add the DVD series to your Amazon wish list.  Why?  Because, well... will anyone really leave you alone long enough to stitch and enjoy the broadcast?   You'll be lucky to get a few sips in before your tea gets cold.

Who says an American born prim stitcher in NY can't enjoy really good Brit drama:)

Gentle Reminder:  Season 2 starts January 8, 2012, see you there!

Tootles, Sue


  1. I'm a HUGE Downton Abby fan and can't wait to see the second season.I was so happy to see a couple of the actors just got nominated for Golden Globe awards. I'm an avid viewer of
    just about all British shows because they are of such high quality and brilliant acting.

    I need to stitch up the free DA design from The Sampler Girl.

    Hugs and Happy Christmas,
    -missy- ohio

  2. Oh, so sad!

    Season two is....really quite horrible.

    I hope you and missy enjoy it more than I did. I found S2 was honestly so bad that I have no plans to watch the third season. :/

    There is also a Christmas Special on Dec 25th. No info US release for that. (I am also not watching that, BUT might get roped in.

  3. Thanks so much for the info. Girlfriends watched season one and it sounded fab. Of course by the time I heard of it, it was the last episode. I can't wait to watch the first season and then schedule my DVR to record it....that is in case someone interferes and let's me tea get cold and I miss a bit of the show on the tellie!

  4. I'm so looking forward to season 2! Can't wait! I want to rewatch season 1 of course. :D

  5. Ummm...I have no clue what you are talking about.

    Who's Downtown Abby?

  6. Oh my - I really enjoyed the series!

    glad they will have more episodes.

  7. Loved it so much I got the DVD from my library and watched it again. Looking forward to Jan and the next series.

  8. I am so excited about the second season of Downton Abbey...I will be glued to the tv!

  9. Season 2 is fab and I'm looking forward to watching the Christmas day episode in the article.
    I think season3 starts for us in Jan but I'm not entirely sure

  10. Merry Christmas! :o)


  11. We LOVE Downton Abbey!!! We watched season 2 and oh my gosh--the Christmas special was a gift for me & my DA obsessed daughter. Just wonderful!

    Did you hear that there will be a third season, set in the Roaring 20s? I can't wait!


A visit from a friend is like a piece of fine chocolate ~ always looked forward to, sincerely appreciated, over with and gone too soon... and leaving you wanting more:)

Sweet thanks for sharing a moment of your day ♥
