What Delilah Did Presents Storyland Cross Stitch

I literally squealed when I saw Storyland Cross Stitch on the shelf at Goodwill. Then I flipped through it and realized that I'd mistaken it for another book that's on my wish list. That's okay, though, because there are patterns in this one that I want to play around with.

Every project in this book, even the ones labeled as for the courageous and determined, are simple. Most have only one color or floss.

I'll probably stitch some of them, but what I really really want to do is take the jackalope pattern and convert it to make a postage stamp quilt out of dark and light neutrals. Wouldn't that be the best thing ever?!

On My Needles in Mid-December

2019 is coming to a close and I'm thinking/hoping that I might be able to get all of these projects finished and bound off before the new year. There's also the pair of Finding the Yellow Brick Road socks, which are buried in a project bag. 

The shawl should be easy enough and so should the Toes in the Sand Socks. The second Smock Madness sock....Let's just say that this is the third time I've cast on for that one. If I make the first, I should be able to do it again, right?

{I've Been Reading} Space Mysteries and a Ghost Chicken

I knew there were going to be Kindle Unlimited books that I wanted to read and after a slow start I've finally started to find them!

A Frosty Mug of Murder by Contance Barker is the first in the Grumpy Chicken Irish Pub mystery series and I've never read a  cozy quite like this one. Ginger O'Mallory runs her family's pub which just happens to be haunted by a ghost chicken with a grudge against the pickled egg jar. When Ginger returns a stray cat and finds its owner dead, everyone she knows wants to get in on solving the mystery. All of the team work between the quirky characters made this one a fun read.

Fly Me to the Moon by Diane Vallere

I was curious about the Sylvia Stryker space mysteries, but not sure if I'd enjoy them or not. I was so wrong -- these are all kinds of fun!  Half Plunian, half Earthling, Sylvia Stryker has hacked her way onto the crew of a space cruise ship. She's more than qualified to perform the duties of the job, but things go wrong immediately. Starting with the dead guy in the uniform closet and continuing with her discovery of another stowaway. It's light-hearted and fun and Sylvia has a great personality.
