Coming up Daisies!

I have reverted to a project I started AGES ago this week and all because I found inspiration in a colour of yarn!

This project was started so long ago that I don't blame you for not remembering THIS post. It turns out that was back in 2013. I made quite a few squares but never did find "just that right blue" to match up so I decided to add another colour.......I would have liked a nice soft green......Pistachio comes to mind.......however, the right green was also elusive so I settled for a grey.

After finishing off a great many of my squares with the grey, I decided I didn't like it so the whole lot just got bundled up and basically forgotten about.

Scoot right back to this week and I was walking through a shop in town looking for something quite unrelated when, suddenly, I laid eyes on........Pistachio Green......Oh My! Quick as a flash, I honed in on the much sought after yarn and grabbed arms full of it.......before, coming to my senses and selecting 4 balls.  Drove back home as soon as possible to unravel all the grey stuff.......(I am sure it will have a place elsewhere)

With that done, I started the new row of crocheting on my daisy blocks.

I am really liking it now and since I couldn't wait to see what it would look like joined together, I even joined two rows of blocks

What do you think?  I was so excited by my find that I went past that same shop the next time I was in town to pick up some more yarn.  I envisage a whole new stash happening!

It turns out that nothing could be better than doing some craft today. It is wild and wooly outside with 55km winds gusting up to 100km/hr........and getting really chilly......possible snow over the next two days.....brrrr!

Now where is that crochet hook?!

  2. That is just lovely...the perfect shade of green...i don't think i would have been inspired by that grey either...i just love Granny Squares''' i wish i knew how to make them....they look so simple yet lovely... but i bet they are not so easy...i can crochet a little...enough to make a very simple scarf... i may have to see if i can figure ut granny squares...you and your green have inspired me..hugs deb

  3. Love, love, love your pretty daisy blocks! The green just gives it a lift and the colour combo is perfect. Have fun completing your project now... and working your way through that lovely stash too :-)

  4. LOVE the color combination! In my 20s, I started one in light blue/dark blue with white flowers. I remember having a whole bag of squares done, but I don't ever remember joining them. Don't know what ever happened to them. It wasn't nearly as fresh looking as your colors.

  5. Oooh! Love those daiseys. The green is perfect.

  6. that is the perfect green! It looks great with the blue, that is going to be a gorgeous blanket!

  8. This green is perfect, very pretty.
