How exciting it has been this week to see completed Daisy-Do quilts dropping into my email box!
How are you going with yours?
Fiona was thinking outside the box with hers and used some fun and funky, chunky beads for the flower centres, and what gorgeous fabric she chose!! So lovely and bright!
Jytte in Denmark has made her Daisy-Do more subdued, with a Makower Zen Flowers print and DMC 4210 thread. As soon as I saw her photo I felt that this was a very calming place to hang out...love it! She couldn't find mother-of-pearl buttons so she used little beads instead...
Amanda in the UK chose Kaffe Fassett blues for her version of Daisy-Do. It reminds me of some wonderful bohemian inspired fabrics I bought ages ago - carefree and filled with wanderlust. Beautiful!!
Now, if you're looking for inspiration you should visit Carla Louise! She's always making up wonderful projects! I love this little cosmetic purse of hers - she used the design from my 'Fresh As A Daisy" bag (a free download on our Gum Tree Designers blog in September) and stitched it to the front of her purse. Love the beaded zipper pull too!
It's been a busy couple of days here after Sam's 18th.
On my boy's birthday I was contacted with the exciting news that I will have a project published in he Spring issue of STITCH magazine in the United States! But, then another email arrived and I will also have a quilt design featured as Homespun's web bonus for their Garden Issue next August! (I also have gorgeous projects being published in the March and April 2011 issues of Homespun too!!)
How exciting is that! :-)

Well, its bucketing down rain here in the tropics, so I'd best be off and enjoy a nice relaxing soy decaff cappuccino. I have a new toy, you see. :-)
