The Brides of Downton Abbey inspired the creation of this lace shawl. Each section of the sampler depicts a word of encouragement from the previous brides of Downton Abbey. We begin with Sybil, her short marriage was filled with STRENGTH of conviction for her deep love of Tom Branson. Daisy’s marriage lasted a few short hours. Despite her reservations, she honored William’s SWEET LOVE by giving him the desire of his heart. Mary’s engagement to Matthew began with ROMANCE surrounded by snowflakes. Our wild, impetuous Rose gained TRANQUILITY when she married Atticus. Who can forget Anna’s perseverance as she gripped HOPE throughout her marriage to Mr Bates. I hope that you enjoy reminiscing with the past brides of Downton Abbey.
