This Sunday is Stir Up Sunday, the last Sunday before Advent Sunday.
So-called because in the Book of Common Prayer the collect for that day is:
Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may of thee be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
It has become the traditional day on which to stir up your Christmas pudding if you haven't already done so.
Thank you to all those who have emailed me saying they would like a Quince Tree calendar.
The cost of the calendar will be £12 for UK and European orders and £15 for other overseas destinations.
This takes into account the cost of printing, postage, packing plus my photography and design of each sampler.
