My daisy loving friend had a birthday at the beginning of August, last week I finally gave her the completed present I had been making!
I had the final image in my head, but it took a while, using lots of techniques I have used before and a couple of new ones!
Firstly I made lots of small white blooms on my flower loom, and needle felted their middles.
Then I wet felted a green background with shetland, some of the green merino from Becky's giveaway, and some sari silk fibres.
It took some thought about how to attach the daisies (minimal sewing) and the hanging device (thanks to my husband for the brainwave that required no sewing!)
...all finished off with a piece of green thread, again from Becky's parcel.

|No sewing pole inserts!|
Sari silk shimmering in the sun!
I loved putting everything together, especially needlefelting the middles in the warm sunny garden.
Happy daisies, Happy Birthday! x
