Sigh…back from our Cornish travels:(
I do so love going even deeper into the West Country and South West; Devon and Cornwall are just so beautiful that it’s no wonder people migrate there in their thousands on an annual basis. When the sun is shining there is no place I’d rather be in Summer than Blighty, Exmoor in particular and the picture-postcard villages of thatched cottages that pepper the landscape so prettily. So much so that we are seriously considering ways of bringing forward our dream of running a guest house and tea room/garden in the Porlock area. Like this one that we have been frequenting for over twenty years – Kitnors in Bossington, a mile’s walk from Porlock.
P E R F E C T I O N ! !
Owned by the National Trust, the lease became available recently and I would have loved to be in a position to take it. Isn’t it pretty?
Back to reality and I have permission to show you a photo of a special little girl wearing a gift that I crocheted for her birthday last week.
This is said pressie: –
I made an adjustable closure of velcro so it should fit however it is worn.
I found the pattern here by the very creative Revlie – pop over and have a look at her colourful blog REVolution. This is HER photo…
…and this is MY photo of the birthday girl wearing the headband another way.
How sweet? Simple and quick to make, it’s a great project for using up small amounts from your stash.
I’d love to see any crochet headband, or any other small project, that you whip up from scraps of yarn – I know I’m not the only one who can’t bear to throw them away!

I applaud you sewing into crochet. I have tried and utterly failed- but you made it look easy! Perhaps I should try again.

You should definitely keep trying – it’s so satisfying! Thanks for your visit:)

The cottage or the headband LOL? The tea garden is just gorgeous as well. I wish I had green fingers; the only plants I can grow are stinging nettles:(

It’s always sad to have to return home, especially if everyone was having fun, but I do hope you get your dream one day of a little guest house !
I’m sure your little boy’s girlfriend was thrilled with her lovely new hair accessory! 🙂

I love going away but it’s always nice to get home again – there’s nothing quite like your own bed is there?!
