SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM FOR THE PATTERN ** how big is it? It fits in my hand, almost as big as a can of soda... i tried a small skinny carrot, but this one looks happier ;-) ** and what is that chicky thing in the background? Last year i found this rolling suitcase, meant for kids, but just had to have it... here's a photo of it, it opens up and has straps to tie down garments, and there is a telescoping handle and wheels on the bottom... how cool is that? Crochet Pears - free pattern. Crochet Pears... just because I like pears.

Crochet Pears - free pattern

I just love to eat a juicy pear. At the moment bananas are a ridiculous price because of cylclone Larry, so pears have become a good alternative. These ones are crochet. The green one is a packham pear, and the lemon one is a corella pear. Pear juice is incredibly good for your insides. Because I like pears so much I am posting the pattern.

Fresh strawberries.........

I found several flat ones for magnets, etc. but I couldn't locate one for what I wanted....well, not one that was FREE! So, I made one up. I put them in this little basket that some real strawberries had come in a few weeks back. When the kids came in, they were both so excited....until they realized they weren't real! I decided that if they could fool the kids, they must look real enough to write down the pattern.I have two sizes of strawberries here but you'll find the pattern is simple enough to change to all sizes....even little buds.So, here it is... another freebie!
