Grandma Daisy...

Grandma Daisy
is my latest design...
I am very excited about this new pattern
and do hope you will be too...




If you would like to leave a comment
I will draw a lucky winner by the start of next week
and one of my lovelies will be the first to receive a free copy of the pattern...

I am about half way through writing it out on the computer...
So there will be nothing better than a deadline...



I did find that the older I get 
The harder it is to get up once down...

I LOVE this cushion!!! I just bought your Grandma Love cushion after swooning over it FOREVER!! I am so excited to make it!! My Great Grandmother taught me how to crochet, it was our special thing that we did together. She passed away last week at 93 1/2 years old. She always made each new baby in the family a blanket when they were born and has asked that I keep the tradition going... I am honoured to keep crocheting on her behalf :) I love all your patterns, thanks for all the great projects!!

Ms. Bake-it said...

Hello Michelle,

I came by way of Sandy at Teacup Lane. I looked back at many of your posts and I must say, you are very creative and talented! I also looked at your other blog and etsy shop. I was hoping to find a copy of the flag she showcased. But upon reviewing your older posts, I see you made it for your son last July. It is fabulous! Daisies are one of my favorite flowers and the pillow you made is so pretty and cheerful. I also love your outfits!

Happy New Year!

~ Tracy
