They smell all Christmassy, but I think would be lovely all year round in one of those well-ordered homes where things are artfully arranged in French-themed shabby-chic vignettes on pretty side tables. i.e. not mine!! So they'll have to be pressies, or decoration on a little craft stall I'm having locally in November. Yes. Perhaps so.

Trying to salvage something from a trip to Peterborough to renew, at great expense, my expired passport two days before we were due to go on holiday, long-suffering friend Anne indulged me while I wandered round an oriental supermarket in the city. We loved the packaging and bright displays, but what really caught my eye was some hummungous cinnamon sticks - they must be nearly a foot long! Ideal candidates for a bit of gussying-up for the festive season. Now I haven't been able to devote myself entirely to crafting at the moment, having DH in hospital for a couple of days and several shepherds pies to make for the village Women's Institute harvest supper tomorrow, but over the past few days I gradually managed to assemble these.
