Little Flower Headband

Oldest just got a brand new yellow dress from my MIL which she loves but she had nothing to go with it, including nothing to put in her hair.   So she asked me to make her a headband for it.   This is that headband.

For the headband itself I used the Jordyn's Headband pattern from crochetville.  Except I used a G (6) and I omitted the last row in the pattern to make a slightly skinnier headband.

For the flower, I substituted the one from the original pattern with a flower pattern from Mr. Funky's Super Crochet Wonderful Book and again used the size G hook and the small flower pattern. 

Tomorrow we have big plans to attend the fiber festival in town and the arts and crafts show that is going on at the same time.   Should be fun and exciting.  I'm going to try to remember to take my camera so I can snap some pictures to share later. 

Really we should be getting much needed projects done around the house instead of galavanting off to the fiber festival.   Younger Brother's graduation is in 2 weeks and we still haven't finished painting, still don't have the house straightened up, still don't have the weeds pulled out of the flower beds, still don't have the carpets pulled up yet and the new floors down, still don't have the grill set up, still don't have the charitable stuff taken to the church shelter.  We DO have one of the freezers cleaned out (we were able to find families in need in the area and donated over 100 lbs of farm meat, vegetables and fruit to them which is great but it took awhile) and we were finally able to get the new dishwasher installed, thank you DH and we have finished some of the housework.  So much to do, so little time.  DH only has one weekend off work before the graduation so it looks like we'll be asking friends for help with some of these projects.
