Filling My Stocking...

I feel like I've been channeling a bad Grumpy Cat meme (who I just adore btw); so, I decided to get my holiday bah-humbug under control. Yesterday morning I finally gave into a couple things I've been wanting...desperately!  I can't tell you haw many times I've admired this pretty set of notecards offered by Ravelry, I think I will frame one.

Next, I settled on a book - it seems forever since I actually sat and read.  My hands are always busy; well, until my hand injury.  So, I settled on a Christmas themed book from the Flavia de Luce series by Alan Bradley I Am Half-Sick of Shadows - it's one of my favorite series!  If you like English novels set in grand homes and gardens with a bit of intrigue...this is the book for you, plus the eleven year old heroine is someone your grown-up self will admire quite a bit.

Lastly, I surprised myself when Craftsy had a flash sale last night and I enrolled in stupendous stitching, which is an exploration on textile surface design!  I probably won't have much time for this until next Summer...but I couldn't pass it up!

Ok, my stocking is full now...and I think I might just be able to brave the holidays!

***PS...Thanks bunches to the Contented Sparrow for featuring my Downton Abbey Cross Stitch Pattern Duo - xoxo
