Guest Crafters Spot – My Brother Stephen - Bulbs, Soil and Baskets Akimbo

Is it the most beautiful Christmas hyacinths arrangement in the World?

untitled

As most of you know my brother Stephen is very profoundly handicapped and looked after by my 78 year old mum. He goes to a Day Centre and at special times like Christmas  he brings something home for my mum that he has madeNow we know that his only contribution was probably holding a bulb for a second or two before throwing it, but he sat at the table and watched while the staff put it together with/for him and of all the presents in the world ….. this is the best and most wonderful of them all!
