Crazy January Challenge #4 & Magazine challenge

I pulled out the same magazine as last night, Cross Stitch & Needlework October 1998 and stitched on Drac. He is done on 10 ct Hickory Heatherfield with DMC. I am killing 2 bitds with 1 stone on this design and using it as a Crazy January Challenge and a magazine Challenge.

It was another cold day, not as bad as yesterday though. The sun was out all day though.
Last night I finished reading Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella. I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars. Could not put it down. I started a new book today, A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness.
The library called me that a bunch of audiobooks came in. I am trying to read and listen to all the Catherine Coulter's FBI series.

Thank you for all of the comments, they have made my day. I am trying to leave comments on other blogs as well.

I actually have a Catherine Coulter that was signed by the author. I won it in an auction at my workplace once. The girl was raising money for Breast Cancer. I love Sherlock especially. She's one of my fave fictional chars. And let us know how Witches is. I was just looking at that in the store yesterday. It looks interesting. And your CS looks good too. Love the color of that purple floss. Keep up the (crazy) good work!!!
