Christmas Pudding Hats, Golf head bands and a Sacrificial Robin

Cornwall was lovely; beautiful beaches, amazing scenery and lots of craft to lust after. I think if I lived by the  sea I would have a house full of interesting stones, shells and drift wood that I might be able to use at some time. In fact I do have a house full of stuff that might come in handy at some time so I don't think it matters where I live I will always be a craft magpie.
I am sure that I have said before that I always take some crocheting when I go anywhere, this is what I made on the way to Cornwall (when I wasn't reading crossword clues to Graham). I did the pom-poms and leaves when I got home.

Christmas Pudding Hats.

I didn't do much crocheting in the evening for two reasons: one I was completely worn out with all the exercise I got walking down to the beaches, along the beaches and up again from the beaches, two was we were in the bar or reliving our youth playing 'penny' machines. I did make a few head bands which were inspired by our golfing friend who asked me to make one to keep her ears warm.

Button on head bands, on some I have put several buttons to allow for different sized heads.

I have shared these before:

But this one is to be our sacrificial victim and I am about to perform cruel and unusual acts on him in the name of CE (safety) testing. First I have to try and pull his eyes out and his wings off, then I must try to burn him before poking him with sticks and then drowning him. I am afraid he must suffer so that others may find a good and safe home! I am not sure I can bear it, he looks so optimistic and cheerful - little does he know!



  1. Hello, It sounds as though you had a wonderful time in Cornwall, glad you made the most of the fresh air and gorgeous beaches.
    Ha ha the Christmas pudding hats are fun, they will be popular.
    Poor Robin, hope he survived and has forgiven you-cruel but for the greater good (we are soft aren't we!)
    Have a lovely week.

  2. Yes we had a lovely time. The robin survived thank goodness. I hope you have a good week too.

  3. Glad you had a good holiday...
    Your delicious pudding hats look so cool
    Love the expandable button headbands
    Poor Robin! - fab to hear he survived the rigours of testing - and can be certified!

  4. More delicious pudding stuff to come. I think the one eyed robin is now a hero among his fellows!
