See the top shelf of my kitchen dresser , a row of sweets and chocolate I received with my presents . My own little sweetie shop .
I made this cushion at least 20 yrs,. ago . It still comes out every christmas . It depicts the lovely christmas cacti . This must be my first year without one of these plants . I had one for many years , it was always loaded with flowers . Last year I put it out in the rain to give the bracts a good wash , it didn't like it and showed it's disdain by rotting and dying . Ah ! well . another will come along .
It has been a glorious morning , sunny and blue sky . It is now clouding over . I sat in my conservatory enjoying the sunshine but I will now prepare my lunch . Chicken , roast potatoes ,broccoli . Just found I have no parsnips , . I shall follow with christmas pudding that bluebell made for me .Then I shall get the fabric out .
