Annaboo's House Gifts

Went to visit my good friend, Dougie today and thought she was in need of a cheer up, so took her a couple of little bits I made with Nan's sewing machine.
I'm thinking of selling some of my crafty wares at the local Community market-mainly the crochet stuff, but thought i'd give some other simple sewing ideas a go too:


She really liked them, which made my day.
She is also now my official product manager, having come up with loads of brill ideas for things I can make and sell.

I also had to show you all a couple of my great charity shop finds from today:

Item 1: cute cotton jumper
Thrifty finds

Item 2: Whistles (yes, Whistles) cardigan
Thrifty finds
Hmmm it looks a bit mad in the photo, but is lovely on.

Item 3: Drum-roll, please ... These fab Mohair yarns for just 50p each!
Thrifty finds
These will be great for a little crochet-y project I'm working on ...

Happy weekend x
