We've been watching Season 9 of Doc Martin via Acorn TV, which we can get through the local library. I love this show! It never fails to make us laugh.
And then there's Season 3 of "The Crown," on Netflix. The new, older actors are doing a great job. I enjoy reading about the real, historical events while watching the drama.
Meanwhile, I am also listening to the audiobook version of The Gown, a historical fiction story of the women who embroidered and sewed Queen (then still a princess) Elizabeth's wedding gown in 1947. I loved reading the book back in September, but my book club is discussing it at our December get together, so I thought this would be a good way to remind myself of the characters and storyline.
I've enjoyed listening to the British reader of the book, Marisa Calin, who does a wonderful job with the different kinds of accents. Soon, I'm sure I'll be speaking in a British accent myself! :)
In other likes this week, I've enjoyed finishing up my little Christmas squirrel.
I think one of the things that draws me to handwork like embroidery and big stitch quilting lately is the textures they create. I'm going to be one of those little old ladies in the home that needs a fidget blanket to keep herself occupied!
And I love my new wool socks. Found a package of these at Costco, which I was so happy about because I wore holes in last year's batch. They are warm, comfy, and fun to wear!
Hope you're finding lots to like this week! Join me at Not Afraid of Color for lots more I Like Thursday posts.
