So yesterday was my day of the "It's for the Birds" blog tour and Daisy
My Handy Hen was one of the projects that I made. But did you happen to notice what Miss Daisy is sitting on? No, it's not an egg.
It is Cath Kidstons adorable little tin crochet book! And just look what is inside!
Yummy, scrumptious rainbow delight! And a learn to crochet booklet with very easy to follow steps. It even has a very nice granny square pillow pattern. I love this little yarn. It is so very happy. So after flying all over blogland yesterday checking out all the sweet peeps that are participating in "It's for the Birds", I just wanted a little quite me time late last night. This is what I started:
A granny square. I think I will make a pillow cover for my sewing chair. The bright happy colors (and daisy) just make me smile! I did find out from using this smaller than what I am used to using yarn, that I crochet very loosely. I may have to tighten things up a bit! That Daisy just cracks me up. Always sticking her beak into things. Nosying around...
So I will be busily hooking away on my granny square and trying to decide how to quilt my Tsuru quilt.
I really love all the suggestions yesterday! I am leaning towards no borders, dark blue binding and a little Sashiko in the large open areas.
But first I have to learn Sashiko! So thank you dear peeps for all your fantastic suggestions!
And I had alot of questions about how I made Daisy, My Handy Hen. I did not have a pattern or anything. I just kinda sketched out what I wanted and fiddled around with it. But since so many of you asked I will try to do either a tutorial or a pattern in the near future.:)
Now I am off to visit some more sweet peeps with all their birdie goodness. the hop doesn't end until the 15th! And if you haven't already, don't forget to enter my my giveaway here! It will close thursday at 12:00 midnight. There are some happy go lucky hexies and paper pieces, vintage repro buttons with a FQ and DMC floss, and a charm pack of Crazy Daisy ( that my sweet little hen wanted to share). So go have fun! I am linking up to my lovely friends at W.I.P. Wednesday!
I am slowly but surely replying to all the emails and comments from yesterday . I sew appreciate all the sweet lovely comments and suggestions and all the new friends that I made!!
