So that's why I looked out this kit by Primitive Gatherings and started cutting out and appliquéing this for spring. It's coming along quite well though I have to say it is tough cutting out all those petals! Reminded me of school days when we girls would pick a daisy and pull the petals off, saying 'He loves me, he loves me not' until you were left with one and the boy you had in mind loved you or not! Did you ever play that? Makes me laugh now to remember!
I know they are considered a weed for those with manicured lawns but traditionally daisies were thought to be a useful remedy for aches and pains and did you know that the name comes from their early name 'day's eye' as they open up as the sun rises.
Chaucer wrote, 'Well by reason men call it Maie.
The daisie or else the Eye of the Daie.'
In Scotland it is known as 'Bairnwort' testifying to the joy of children gathering it to make daisy chains.
That's exactly what my daughter loves doing and here's the one she made for me!
Happy daisy days of spring!
Thanks for joining me!
Its always lovely to hear from you!
