Ten from one does go - Part III

Just a quick post today, as I have a heap of chores to do!

But as this photo is ready to go, I can quickly squeeze this in whilst waiting for lunch to finish cooking.

The ninth make from the jumper was this keyring or bag charm.  A bit of the ribbon was used, some scraps of wool felt and a salvaged carabiner-type thingy.

I was at The Maltings market yesterday and managed to sell the mug cosy and coaster, the brooch and the bootees, so that's seventeen pounds for the hospice shop that they wouldn't have had if the jumper had gone in the rag bag!  

With the rest of the items still to sell, I am trying to end up with a fifty pound total.  If I can make that, I might have to go and buy some new Primark jumpers to shrink!  (Machine washable wool generally doesn't shrink, so it can be hard to find things you can actually do this with!)

So will there be a number ten?

I still had quite a bit of 'stuff' left, but was I out of ideas?  

Well, yes...a bit.
I have a couple of ideas for number ten, but am not especially enthused by either.  I am hoping for a lightbulb moment this afternoon when I'm avoiding er, doing the ironing.

By later on today, I'll either have number ten ready to show you tomorrow, or a neat pile of ironing...
