A sunny side up, crochet cherry on top, kind of day

Today is a cherry on top kind of day even though the sun has stayed in bed and left the sky looking like a big bruise. I’ve crocheted up a little bunch of cherries with leaves and stalks based on a vintage pattern called Cherries Boutonniere #2249.  

These squares are still a favourite – you can get the free pattern on Ravelry.

Then I found these plumpy dumpy bobble tops. A double row  of popcorn stitches – worked in trebles rather than DCs for really boppy bobbles.

Anyway, these bobble tops are worth the time and effort for the fabbiness they bring to all sorts of projects.

The pattern is on Ravelry: Lily Pad Hexagons. For information, mine are made with a 4mm hook and Baby Bamboo which is soft and comes in a lovely selection of colours. 🙂

What did the hat say to the afghan? You stay here and I’ll go on a-head… 🙂
