Went to Bents Garden Centre a couple of days ago. If ever anything could get you in the mood for Christmas, Bents can. I think they’ve been voted the best garden centre for a couple of years now – I’ll post their addy for you to take a look if you wish.
Forests of trees, tonnes of decorations, table dressings, lights etc……….somehow it seemed to really match the autumn nip that’s now in the air. I also have to say, that it’s a paradise for innovative embroiderers or patchworkers as well. Some of the foils, beads and decorations convert wonderfully well for inclusion into all forms of textiles. It’s also the time of the year where excess just seems right, bright colours can be used in abundance and no-one seems to mind…….
