I visited a friend’s web site, Free Crochet Patterns and Designs by LisaAuch, laid eyes on a sweet floral crochet headband pattern, and I was prepared to get out my old hooks and scrap skeins of yarn and give my hair a new look for fall! Instead, I ended up sending the article author a note requesting a specific flower design and that I would write an article about it once I crocheted it too. She obliged me!
Not only did LisaAuch fulfill my special request, she went a few giant steps further in giving me the gift of of my favorite flower. Look to the right and you shall see my home grown sunflowers!
I received an email a short time after I initially contacted Lisa and wish to share parts of its story with you...
Hi Ruth. Lisa here, well I love it when people set me a project, and I get to work.
I have made the sunflower headband and will do the step by step now I will give you this for your page to do as you please, obviously a link to my crochet website would be most appreciated ;) you are free to be as creative with the page/pattern/photos as you like :) I will email over once completed :)
BUT also I have a little idea for Halloween here, for my poor dog that will link back to your pages too.
Anyway I just want you to know that I appreciate you! I know you had a struggle with Domestic abuse, and I did too, sometimes its just good to know there are other survivors out there, who picked themselves up and got on with it! You will know what I mean.
Anyway – if you don’t want to I totally understand! BUT I was thinking I would love to send the finished headband to you. as a kind of “product” postcard, just to say thank you for all your support.
Obviously I would need your address, but as I say understand totally and I wont be offended, but if you would like it then I would love to pop it in the post.
