Daisies in the middle

A simple, sweet, square variation of the daisy blanket with a special edge.



I used Berroco Vintage Chunky yarns (Snow Day, Aquae, Minty, and Banana). The blanket is on the smaller side measuring 30"x 30". It's perfect for a car seat or tummy time. The yarn is so soft and warm. It was fun to use.

The border is a shell spaced picot edge.

Finally finished - Daisies on the Edge

It took me longer than expected (between, kids, work and holiday things) to get this completed, but it's done. A new daisy blanket, I have dubbed "Daisies on the Edge". It's the same blanket I did back in 2012, but I used new yarn and new colors (Universal Classic Worsted Yarn). I also wrote the pattern, and it is available here. The main color is called bubblegum, but it reminds me more of a shrimp :)


Thank goodness it's almost Friday...

Meeting new friends through a headache.

The pattern for sale has been removed. Cheers to all of the supporters I have met over on Instagram! One in particular is Faye at Little Dove Designs. She has some amazing cross stitch patterns in her shop, and is a very talented crochet artist as well. Below is a photo from her blog of a beautiful daisy blanket she created using the daisy pattern as her base. Really lovely.

9/11 Never forget.

A day of remembrance and hope for peace and freedom.

Here we go again...



According to spitspotloves Facebook page, they are currently "writing the pattern" for this lovely daisy heart that has been available - for free - online for months. They should rename their shop spitspot loves to copy others for profit.

Head over to daisycottagedesigns.net for the free version.

Finishing up a new daisy blanket



I am almost finished with a new pink daisy blanket I have been working on with a new customer over at my Etsy shop. She is a breast cancer survivor and is including the blanket in a daisy themed basket for a silent auction. She sent me her logo:


And I supplied a new version of the daisy based on her gerbera-type daisy used in the logo:


Ultimately, she went with the original daisy, but I really like how this on came out, and will definitely be using it in a new blanket.

BTW, the Get In Touch Foundation is a breast health nonprofit organization and the Get In Touch Girls' Program & Daisy Wheel teaches girls in grades 5-12 the importance of and how to do a breast self exam.

What a wonderful cause!
