Dreams and ideas for daisies. Maybe the perfect gift for Mother's Day or Easter!

Ever since my last post I have become a little obsessed with daisies!

With Spring, Mothers Day and Easter just around the corner all these little ideas with daisies came to mind.
To be truthful they seem to evolve just when I am trying to drop off to sleep which is a little annoying but never mind!
So,here goes.
One pretty pot and some cheerful narcissi.

One crochet band with 2 daisies and a button sewn on.

Fasten it up.

And pop it on the little pot just like a little sleeve.

It looked so pretty on my friends shelf!
The perfect way to say "Thank You"  for a lovely lunch.

And with that little sleeve in mind .
How easy to make a pretty little headband for a little girl on a Spring day.

My Dear Mother In Law has been a bit poorly lately and feeling more than a little blue.
So two more pots of narcissi ,a little wicker basket and some daisies in my version of a daisy chain.

We were really happy to see that cheerful basket by her chair.
Then I was reading in bed and ----

There was a perfect Book Mark.
An ideal gift for someone special!
Thoughts often turn to family times.
Meals where we can all gather around the table and a pretty serviette ring will make the Easter table look really pretty.

And as a centrepiece two six inch squares joined by two rows of double crochet.

You might wonder about the setting for the photos -- Well "Operation Broken House" with the Hairy Builders is no place for frippery just now!!
Actually it is always the right time for frippery and it made them laugh!

And coming back to my initial thoughts about presents the perfect finishing touch.

So just a few ideas about daisies.
I hope you like them as much as I do!
I have not put instructions for each little idea as this post would have turned into a tome but if anybody wants instructions for a particular item I will of course put them on -- my pleasure for my lovely followers new and old.
