Our Cornish Visitors and an MJT Giveaway!...

Cornish Mice
Knitting Pattern
All ready for a day out fishing...

Jory

He's a touch mischievous...
(and very hard to catch!)
Caja
She's a little shy...
(I have a terrible urge to squeeze her...but she isn't very happy about it!)
♥ ♥ ♥
I had lots of requests for a little boy mouse and so 'Jory' was created...
but he seemed a little lonely and so he has a very best friend 'Caja'...
Inspired by our memories of idyllic holidays in Cornwall
and the beautiful Cornishware ..
'Cornish Blue'

Where they began...
Our little mice are made using small amounts of
beautifully soft alpaca and cotton yarns
and are a perfect size for small hands...
Easy to knit and only 8 1/2" in size....they are perfect to pop
into a pretty gift bag and are now available in our
ETSY Shop

Well friends...
we are all feeling very happy here at
the tearoom
and we feel like having some
Celebration Giveaways!

This first Giveaway is this lovely
'Cornish Blue
Honey &Marmalade Pot'

As used in our pattern photographs...
a brand new item in it's original gift box
and it really is lovely!

All you have to do is....
Just add your name in the pop up comment box
(click on the comments at the bottom of this post)
and if you are a follower of our blog
just add 'follower' and we will add you twice into our lovely big hat..
and that's it!
The Winner
will be announced on
Friday 14th October 2011
