Deconstructing a Nod and a Wink

These two designs are my homage to period dramas. I’ve always been a fan of period dramas. The simpler times when a bolt of fabric would be cause for celebration and time was taken each day for a cup of tea. I dreamed of how it would be to live during the times of the March family; reading and writing by candlelight. Days were spent working hard, living each of them to it’s fullest and enjoying the company of others.

These period dramas were a huge inspiration in the construction of this town: Lark Rise to Candleford, Downton Abbey, Cranford and Little Women.

I hope you enjoy stitching these as much as I enjoyed designing them.
