Patchwork Daisy


Well i've survived the first week of the Easter hols - but it has seemed really long this time, i think it's because although we have had days out, it's been so cold, it's actually felt like the Christmas hols !!

I would just like to thank the following people, for the fabby Birthday cards they sent me : Aunty SueChristine / TillySandieJaniceKay and Ann.  I was also fortunate to win the lovely Teresa's candy and i also won a prize on the Penny Black Saturday Friends Challenge for Wooly Dames - i spent the day with the lovely Louise (whom i met at a craft class at The Glitter Pot) and we went to The Craft Barn, as it had moved to a new location, where i finally got to meet the very talented Kay Carley.

I bought the image and papers the other week, when LOTV had 10% off and as there are a few Kraft challenges around, i thought i would have a play, by stamping on kraft and paper piecing the flower with the papers, which are 'Country Lady', i have gone round all the edges with faux stitching - i hope you can see it, the die is Die-namics - 'Faux Crochet Border', sentiment - LOTV, cream lace - 'The Ribbon Girls'.
