I made a pair of PJ pants for my Superman fan sister, but didn't have enough Superman flannel to do both legs, so had to be inventive:
The same sister also got the first season of The X Files, from 1993. She got hooked on the show, watching it on Netflix earlier this year.

Then, in 1945, the three books were released as a single volume entitled Lark Rise To Candleford. The series takes place in late 19th century Oxfordshire and follows the lives of various people who live in the small village of Lark Rise and the nearby town of Candleford. The main protagonist is Laura Timmins, a teenage girl who moves from Lark Rise to Candleford for a job.
