A Welcome Surprise

I missed posting last week as I was spirited away on a surprise holiday by Himself. It was wonderful to have some time away at last, after all the ill health of the last couple of years, preventing either of us from being well enough at the same time to go away. I'll tell you more about the holiday next time.

This week I'd like to finally welcome the Policeman to the family of Knitted Collectables. You last saw the naked version of him here.


It always amazes me how they come to life as you start to add the little details.


In allotment news, the harvesting has begun.


It's great to finally be reaping the rewards after all the hard work of digging and preparing the soil. 
There's still lots more to come, I think I may have planted a few too many potatoes for the two of us, but I'm sure I'll be able to make all sorts of interesting things with them.

Just a quick post today to catch up with myself. 
Hope you've all had a great week.

  6. We also had Fireman Sam, which my neighbour knitted for my son many years ago. She also made a Po Teletubby too. My neighbour is no longer with us, and my son is 15, but I still have the toys kept in a box.
