cushion sampler

This started out as a sampler of stitches and and I used it as the centre of a cushion for a few years. More recently it was converted to a small cushion with a 'smelly' filling. I had watched a TV program called 'Growing your own drugs' {I think} & a tip for sleepless nights was a pillow filled with hops [to make you drowsy] & lavender [to disguise the smell]. It still smells awful!!! It may be converted into something else soon!

Tree Houses

We rented the top house during our stay in Port Leucate, France which had good views of the local area. Can't remember how we got up to the top of the tree house, must be because of the consumption of wine.
