Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do.

Daisies are the sweetest flowers by far. Ive made a few from felt for a project that I don't quite know where its going yet! Here they are displayed on my.........

.....Daisy tablecloth that was embroidered in an air raid shelter in Chatham Docks during World War 2 .
Why are the Ox-Eye daisies in the wild in flower when........


the daisies in my garden are still tightly shut?


I should be grateful I suppose that I could only find a very small patch of daisies on my lawn!



and finally another project that I have a bit more of an idea where I am going with this. Whether it works out or not is another story!

Hi,
Thanks for your lovely comment. I've just been tagged with the 'unimportant 6 things' and half of mine were the same as yours so now I'm rethinking!
Have a great week, x

what a lovely tablecloth and story to go with it. I guess daisy's brightened someone's day in that dark time. I love daisies. It amazes me that some people would rather not have them in their lawns! x

Hi Diane, I love daisies too; they are such a homey flower. How do you know that the tablecloth was embroidered in an air raid shelter? Is it a family heirloom? You new project is off to a lovely start, please post the finished item.
