Crochet Daisy Chain

I have been a crocheter since the age of 8, two years before I started to sew.

 

I’m eternally grateful to a great-aunt who took the time and patience with me all those years ago.

 

While I don’t often get the time to crochet, it’s nice to have an easy ‘pick-up-put-down’ project on the go when I’m not in the sewing room.

One such project was this spring garland.  My uni-daughter loves seasonal garlands and I thought this would make a sweet addition to her ‘Easter goodies’ parcel from home.

I didn’t have a pattern to work from, so after a few attempts, I got to the right size and shape I was after.

Daisies are my favourite flower!  And to coin a phrase from one of my favourite movies ‘they’re such a friendly flower’!  (Meg Ryan, You’ve Got Mail)

 

Daisy chains remind me of a time when I was a girl, making chains from daisies on long summer days playing out the fields near where I lived.

 

My uni-daughter is delighted with her spring garland!  And I’m so pleased with how it turned out, I made one for myself too!

So despite the rather dull weather here this week, my daisy chain is bringing some spring brightness into my home!

Happy crafting!
