Daisy in the Grass

Daisies in the grass.....provokes wonderful memories of summers in England and making daisy chains. A few weeks before Easter I came across this really lovely project  at PS Capture the Details that I just had to do!

ok... my "grass" is a little more manicured!

As with so many of these kind of things, finding the essentials is not as easy as you would think. I had an awful time trying to find the foam wreath and  I searched all the usual suspects like Lincraft and Spotlight to no avail. I did find the right colour fibre at Lincraft and the daisy trim at Spotlight. Miss M said I should try "Riot" and eventually I found myself in the vacinity and low and behold.....they had them there.  I did, however, get the last one in stock!
pins, daisy trim, fluffy green knitting fibre, foam wreath

So with all my bits 'n bobs collected time to get started.  Find a comfy spot to wrap all that fibre onto the wreath, it takes awhile and the fibre can get into an awful mess.

Then it is just a case of cutting a daisies from the roll of trim and attaching them by sticking a pin through the centre and into the wreath.
All that's left to do is attach a ribbon and hang it up. A little late for Easter but I am still going to hang it up.

Keep your needles threaded!



  1. Absolutely gorgeous Cath - a cheap option when you cannot find a foam wreath is to get some foam pipe from the plumbing section of your hardware store - cut to size - join with tape - ready for you to use

  2. You can't beat a daisy lawn, whether in your own back yard or hanging prettily on your wall.........what a great idea.

  3. Great job Cath, it looks really pretty!

  4. What a great project and I can see it staying up all year - though the same idea could easily be used at Christmas.!

  5. What a great idea and adorable wreath! I would have never thought to use yarn(knitting fibre) for something like that. Oooh, the possibilities.

  6. Hi Cath - what a lovely project! It is so pretty with those daisies.

  7. That is so cute! The daisies are the perfect touch!

  8. Hi Cath, I love this wreath! I'm kind of a wreath "junkie" & pretty much feel a room isn't complete without one....lol! I would leave this up all summer!

    Thank you for following my blog, & I'm now following 2 of yours. I'm a beginner quilter (have been for a couple of years now), & your blog "Sew It's Finished" looks very interesting to me. Looking forward to getting to know you better.
