Cornwall, Crochet and Vintage Finds

Hope your enjoying a relaxing Sunday what ever you may be up to.
I've had a lovely break from reality this Easter half term, spending time with family and friends.
I've hooked up a few bits and bobs.
Here is a little dachshund called sausage.
You can find the pattern in simply crochet magazine issue 17. 

In the new simply crochet magazine (issue 18) There're some wonderful patterns, I hooked up this lovely doily quickly, will need blocking.

I tried my hand at this new motif I really enjoyed the star pattern.

Here are a few photos from our week in Cornwall. 
2, Vintage signs
4, A veggie version of the famous Cornish pasty for me.
5, Beach huts at Bude
6, Newquay 
7,8,9 Lost gardens 
We all had a lovely time, my first time in Cornwall I will definitely be back.

I will leave you with some little vintage finds I have acquired lately. 
I'm hoping to get back up to date with all your blogs and get back into the swing of things too.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on the post.
Hope you've all enjoyed a lovely Easter.
