I've been waiting for some Christmas reads to arrive so I was holding out on starting something new.  However, since they didn't arrive before the weekend, I thought I'd go ahead and start it and hopefully my Christmas books will come this week.  I also LOVE this author!

On the TV::::
I have 3 episodes of Poldark to catch up on and also an 2 episodes of "Timeless".

I'm so behind on all my other shows, that I've decided to just give up on them!

What I am creating at the moment::::

I "FINALLY" finished Steph's Afghan.  I've been working on it off and on since about August.
I made it in the colors of her Living Room.
It has already been gifted and was greatly appreciated :)

The flower pattern is the Primavera Flower from Ravelry.

I don't know why, but I always like to see how they look folded up all nice and neat!
Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::

"For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast."

Ephesians 2:8-9 NASB
