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!
