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!

Despite the rather damp and dull day today, it’s so lovely to officially start spring!

February may have been a shorter month, but it was a busy one for me!

Feb'16 Roundup

Mostly sneak peeks here again I’m afraid, and one or two of these not made (but published) in February.  But I will tell you about them all in time.

And here are my bee blocks for February:

Reverse Churn Dash blocks for Bee Blessed
Bee Blessed

L-R: Brit Bee R4 block for Ceri; Hedgehog blocks for Anne/Siblings Together Bee 2

So that’s my round-up for February!

And before I go, a wee shout out for donations of fat quarters for my bloggy friend Sheila, who is raising funds for Yorkhill Children’s Hospital in Glasgow, and a special little girl called Beth.  You can read more about Beth’s story and Sheila’s fund raiser here.
