So. I decided to actually make something for one of my girls. Like a real thing… that would take aaaages…. and last for aaaages too. It had to be something for Daisy first..and i decided on a crochet daisy theme… with a definite hint of old granny squares retro-ness to it! Took a while a to find the right pattern as I wanted a plump daisy with lots of petals.. eventually found one here.. tillie Tulip blogspot. I love a nice lawn with lots of daisys peeping through it so this was the look i was after… I found a mixture of yarn… some acrylic and some wool.. the cream was a nice chunky wool to make soft petals.
Took a while to get my groove on with the daisys,… whoops i had copied the pattern wrongly…DOH! then that was it – i was off.. loved it!! Watched a lot of ‘The Wire’ in the evenings which seemed to shoosh me along!
Decided nope i’m not going to cut corners.. i’m gonna do the back same same but different – so swapped the pale green yarn for a nice vintagey green and whooped 16 more little fellas
