Daisyflake Monday

Daisyflake Inspiration

More, you ask?!? Why yes, especially since my flowers just got yet another thick blanket of snow...

A Genuine Snowcatcher!

Aren't last week's and this week's flake patterns nearly identical to the Dahlia Snowflake and the Mother's Day Snowflake Motif?

Why, yes! Thank you for noticing! I'm hoping to create a flowery snowflake motif project, perhaps even another shawl, and I'm trying to make all these flowerflake patterns compatible for join-as-you-go. I hope to be able to come up with 8 more different flower centers for a total of 12!

  2. I love your frosted tulips. I also like the alpine forget-me-nots. The latter being only a handful of months away!

    1. How true, Lizard! And the tulips will be all gone and but a memory by then...

  3. Wow, what an absolutely gorgeous flake! And your daisies are so cheery they make me smile just to see them.

    We had a bit of snow today but no accumulation. It's not 80 anymore....

    P.S. Love the new header. :)

    1. Thanks, Sue, on all counts! I love the cheery flowers, too. One of my bosses the other day asked where I got the idea to put flowers in snowflakes. I told him I was bored with white, and he got a good laugh from that.

      We had six more inches last weekend. I hope that's the last for a while, but I did a stupid thing last night and planted more rosemary. I think that just about guarantees another snowstorm...

      I have four more new headers I think I'll rotate in just for fun!
