A very special pomegranate

My sister currently lives in Baku, Azerbaijan, but she pops in to handmadebysoo towers quite often, considering the distance involved.  You might almost say it’s her second home in the UK.  On her last visit she brought a very special gift, a china pomegranate, symbol of Baku.  This now has pride of place in my kitchen.

The other thing she revealed is that she has finally (re)discovered her creative side by joining the Baku ladies’ craft group, which is the cause of much rejoicing here!  The Baku ladies work all year creating wonderful crafty things to sell at their Christmas bazaar to raise funds for underprivileged children in Azerbaijan, like these gorgeous felt gingerbread houses.
