It seems an age since I last visited blogland but its been a productive interval. It was lovely to end the hellish design year with really good sales both at home and at the V&H fair in Chipping Sodbury; many thanks to Jayne and Michele who worked very hard to make this event such a success. Having persuaded my customers to buy jars of fabric, glass jars, angels and jugs to fill with holly I felt I should devote some time to using these items to trim my own home.
The hydrangeas were the big find this year; they've never turned such a glorious deep red before and make a practical choice as they are already dried. I've used them to trim the dining room as red seems a good colour for the setting for Christmas dinner
And now there's just the food to organise...endless lists litter the kitchen but realistically it will all happen in the haphazard way it usually does with the help of family and friends
