A Little Christmas Reading
Ages ago my friend Ann gave me a book The Christmas Mystery by Jostein Gaarder. Every year I say I will read it and it hasn't happened until now. Each chapter is set out as a date on an advent calendar opened by a little boy who discovers an old faded advent calendar in a book shop which unfolds a mystery. I am reading a chapter each day (they are quite small) on the matching day.
I don't have any stitching to show you at the moment as it is all "secret squirrel" stuff for next year. I think you will however like what I have been up to. I have also been doing a lot of drawing which is my "place" that I go to when I need peace and quiet....so...lots of new ideas down on paper.
That's it from me today....some domestic goddess duties await.
A little saying I think rings true.....
"If you can't find Christmas in your Heart, you won't find it wrapped under a Christmas Tree"
