Hullo dear hearts,
I return misty-eyed from watching the second part of BBC1’s Cranford Christmas special. I take back what some of what I said just before actually watching it. There I bemoaned (well, tutted a little) that it hadn’t really been as moving or gripping as the first [proper] series. Well. Rest assured, the second half is infinitely superior to the first episode!
Loved it. Cried a lot. Smiled a lot.
If I had a lace hankie I’d have dabbed at eyes in a delicate fashion, but had to make do with the back of a pyjama sleeve.
I promised a selection of suitably Cranfordian themed goodies, and I shall not fail you…

All of these finds warrant a closer look. The Locomotive Scarf, for example, is so intricately worked and has the phrase “Got Steam?” crocheted into the design. Amazing!
Until next time, poppets,
