. . . even in these dark mornings, with our cuppa-tea-in-bed-tray. It gets activated usually about 6.30am.A bit more colourful crockery on a shelf in the kitchen. I used to have a lovely blue and yellow kitchen but in our new home the worktops and wall tiles are a sort of orangy brown and all the cupboards and walls are white. Funny, where stitching is concerned I'm quite good with colour but in the house I'm a bit of a flop, succeeding perhaps half the time. I've got to the place now where I would really like to do a room up the way I choose to have it instead of the mixture of how it was when we came and our own bits and pieces that don't match! Patience, patience. Maybe in the Spring . . .
