Getting my hook on.....move over Granny and don't be's time for a little respect!

Hi folks and yep, Monday morning already.  Did you have a good weekend?
I had a good day at work on Saturday, not quite as frantic as normal but I had a couple extra pairs of hands out the back and it makes all the difference.  This was followed by a lazy evening in with a good meal and glass of wine.
Yesterday, I was going to do so much but then I got a bee in my bonnet or you could say a crochet itch and had to play instead.  Isn't that what Sunday's are all about?
As I have mentioned earlier I am making granny squares for cushions to go with my new chairs, unfortunately I have ran out of wool and need a trip to Aberlour for more so I decided to have a go at creating a poppy. 
My pal has a wee baby girl called Poppy and I thought it would be nice to crochet a wee hat and add a poppy as part of her Christmas pressy.

This is my first attempt, got a wee bit of tweaking to do I think but already had orders for 4 with just a mention on Facebook.  Many thanks to Amy for her pattern and getting my creative juices going, although I didn't follow 100 per cent it gave me the general idea.  You see and I'm admitting it here first, I do find written patterns a little difficult to all sounds foreign to me.  I took what I know and adapted!  #wingingit!

So what is on the cards today?
I have a card that I must make for a local lady and then you've guessed it, an appointment I put off yesterday, me and Mr Iron!  Boo.  I then have some house work to do and a trip out later this afternoon. 
Beautiful blue skies here today so I might just have to get that washing machine working hard first.
Enjoy your Monday, hugs.  x

Good morning Erika,
Love, love, love your Poppy.
They would look great in any colour.
A few together in matching colours would make a stunning embellishment for a hat.
Have a fantastic day
