Daisy Days - the piecing begins!


It seems that I have been stitching these eight blocks forever, but in reality it's only been about 4 months.
Still, fitting them in between all my other design work wasn't as easy as I hoped but this week the final block was stitched!
Block 8 ~ Every Day is a Daisy Day ~...
 

Today I began piecing the blocks together...

This is the top row...

Block 1 ~ Mondaisy ~ is in the second row...
 
 
I wanted to keep going, but I've caught Blossom and Mr E's head cold, and as the day wore on I started feeling worse and worse, so I have closed the door on my sewing room until I can stand upright without the room spinning and think straight once again. It's rather dangerous leaving me in charge of a rotary cutter at the moment.
I'm filling up on this watermelon as it is so soothing on my throat and helping to keep me hydrated...and it has lovely vitamins too.
Hopefully by Friday I will be improving because I want to share with you the various ways you can become a part of the Daisy Days BOM.
Until then, I shall duck under the covers and attempt to be quiet and read lots. 
 
not-too-close hugs, 
Jenny

  3. Daisy Days looks wonderful and I can hardly wait for Friday and your information! However, it is more important that you take care of yourself. Don't overdo or you will just catch every single "bug" that flies through the air! Rest, drink plenty of liquids, and think happy thoughts!
    Hugs!

  8. I hope you are feeling better right away! It's awful to want to create and feel too lousy to do it. Your first row looks wonderful! I'm going to love this one complete.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
