Today I went shopping for a Christmas Tree.
At the shop I found this...
My stash cupboard is really a treasure trove and 99% of the time has exactly what I want or need. Today when tracing a design for my Sashiko page in the NMMSAL I retrieved a packet of Chaco Paper (the bright blue packet in the top left) purchased around 25 years ago in Japan! I just knew it would be useful one day.
It has been fine here all day (an unusual occurrence for a weekend at this time of year) and I managed to get my garden weeded and tidied up and replanted the strawberries into fresh soil and fresh pots. Perhaps with all the Tender Loving Care, in December we will have strawberries Chez Nous.
