'Growing' My Own Little Daffodils ~ Part 1 ...

Hello my dear friends,

as so many times before, I just can't seem to only work on one piece at a time.

My lovely tole daffodil candle holder just did something to me that make me want to start 'growing' my own daffodils now!  Normally I would design my own pattern but this time I was too impatient to wait to do the trail and error thing so I searched and I found! I actually found several patterns on the Internet and then after all did a very short trail and error thing to find the one that was meant for me and one pattern became my favorite one.

This is the pattern I found ...

It is by Helen who lives in the UK. Her crochet daffodil is such a lovely flower. The pattern is a little advanced for those of you that don't crochet often and it might take a little time and practice until you master it but once you have, you will love it! This daffodil blossom is made in two parts that you then sew or in my case glue together.

I changed the pattern a little to make it right for me and made my daffodil 'parts' from two strand of vintage white crochet thread and a very fine crochet hook.

These were then dyed a lovely shade of yellow and using a dot of fabric glue, then glued together and 'made one'. Tiny glass beads found their home in the center of the flowers and now live there happily.
I am planning on 'growing' my Spring blossoms on wire stems again like my other little crochet flowers in the past and I have also already found what I am going to use to make the leaves as well.

 I have two ideas already, in which I would like to use my little yellow Spring flowers. One of the two creations is going to have to possibly wait until late this year or early next year though before I can work on it properly but I will see how things go.

 I am also still working on my 'Alice in Wonderland' nests apart from the little daffodils these days which I am hoping will be done soon. We had been working on our house or rather garage and my being creative had to take a little time out these past few weeks.

 Before I close this post for today, I would like to say a big 'Thank you' to Helen in the UK for making this lovely daffodil pattern. I am so happy I found it.

And last but not least ...

... do come back soon to see how my little Spring flowers are 'growing'.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Nothing says "Spring" like daffodils and violets. You've conquered both.

    Happy Sunshine!
