So Good to be Back Ho-o-ome Again...

... as The Tourists sang.

It means I can scour charity shops and sit in my workroom making things.

Today's purchases are
 Another lovely plate to add to my tiny rosebud collection
 Funky Jam Pot
  Must be strawberry, of course!
Man's shirt to reinvent.  You can't really see here but the lining is a fabulous grey stripe.  Watch for further adventures of this shirt.

Now the makes.  These are actually WiPs so I was really pleased to get them done.
 The yarn is a lovely soft cotton so even the most delicate frocks and blouses will be safe on these.
 Close up of the shell pattern I created.
This is Humpty Teddy from the Summer Rowan pattern book.  Yarn is Rowan Handknit Cotton.

It was also lovely to see Big Grandbaby C and Dog C.  Real names Jasmine and Bridget, in that order.

I have also made a big decision - stuff trying to get to 50 followers!  I've been stuck on 45 for so long that I'm going to do a giveaway anyhow.  News soon ...
