RS228: Crafty Christmas
Photography by Robert Sanderson/Narratives

Location: London, UK

Living in the country is definitely in Flora’s blood, and at Christmas there’s no place she’d rather be than with her family in rural Wiltshire. ‘We start by watching The Snowman on Christmas Eve with just the fire going and the tree lights on. And in the morning, we open stockings in bed with the dogs and a cup of tea before heading to the church service, afterwards, we wrap up warm and take the dogs on a long, lovely walk before all the aunts, uncles and cousins arrive.’
Although city dweller Flora hasn’t quite made the move back to her home county she has created her own haven of rustic tranquility in the London flat she shares with her husband Chris, their son and dog.
Their home is filled with beautiful country style accessories - cushions, doorstops and bunting - that fool you into thinking this is a sweet little cottage in some pretty village. ‘I adore sewing,’ says Flora. ‘It's addictive being able to create something from scratch with your own hands; who knew making a cushion to match an old pair of your mother’s vintage Laura Ashley curtains could be so fulfilling?!’
