5 things from my dads old jumper ...
Originally uploaded by RaggyRat

i didnt get many things left to me when my dad died, just two boxes from HMP wymott. one of the things was this jumper which i have worn quite a lot over the years. he died boxing day 1999, so i think of him at this time of year also.

but i dont wear baggy jumpers any more, so i decided to make something alse we could use year after year, some stocking for our fireplace! the other fabrics came from local recyclers. i cant say no to fabric !

oh, and happy new year, hope you have fun tonight. we are still recovering, as a family, from the bad tummy bug.
