Granny Flowers♡



Hello, lovely lovelies♡ A sunny, Sunday morning welcome to you♡ Just hanging out here in the Fernery with all the happy plants and flowers smiling upon me; happily crocheting granny squares, yet again. =)  With swirls and twirls of green, purple and mauve wool twisting and tangling around me, my wee addiction to the humble granny square has filled my week.  But this time my granny squares have a happy flower blossoming in the centre.

I wanted to fashion another cardie and I really didn't want one with granny squares the same as I've done previously. I wanted a cardie with flowers blooming here and there. Mr Google was most helpful with my search for a flower granny square. He led me down many a beautiful path where pansies, dahlias, sunflowers, daffodils......so, so many pretty, woolly flowers, were waiting to be crocheted. Desiring a simple flower as my first attempt, I settled on a daisy; the sweet flower that breathes joy and cheerfulness into a day. And simple it is. There were a few daisy tutorials but I liked the look   of  'Adore Crea Crochet'  quick and easy daisy granny square. This sweet daisy is both pretty and quick to crochet.






I read somewhere that purple daisies mean you're thinking of someone, but also mean spontaneity, peace, unity, and fun. I love the language of flowers. My granny squares with purple daisies sitting in the centre are certainly fun.



As it's Sunday I'm going to enjoy a little crochet. More granny squares are needed, and I will continue joining these together in the join-as-you-go method. It's lovely and sunny here in the fernery. A little crochet; tea and cake. Such a fabulous way to spend a couple of hours.

As I sit here in my flowery fernery basking in the sunshine, and crocheting my happy little purple daisies, I shall think of you♡ From my little home to yours, sending you sunshiney thoughts and smiles ♡ Have a lovely day, lovely lovelies♡

Until the next time......

  6. I have never seen granny squares with daisies in the middle. Perfect for a granny who loves flowers! Sounds like a wonderful way to while away a Sunday afternoon. How is your little granddaughter these days? Gail at the cozy quilter.

    1. Gail, this granny definitely needs a cardie with flowery granny squares. =) My sweet Riley is doing wonderfully. It's hard to believe that in two months she'll be a year old! The time has certainly flown by!

  9. Oh my, I love those daisy granny squares. The colors you chose are so pretty. I have crocheted a daisy square afghan for a friend's daughter and a rose square afhan for myself. I love all the granny square possibilites. Crocheting with a side of tea and cake sounds delightful. I think I have to go bake now.

  14. Your granny flower blocks are so sweet, Kim! That's a pretty color combination, and goes perfectly with your beautiful spot there. Have a lovely day of playing with yarn and crochet hook!

  16. LJ here. It's great that you're working on another cardie/sweater. I love that you've added the daisy to the middle of each square. Of course, your photos are the very best. I always find a new something in them. The vase is superb, the plate splendid. I have several plates hand-painted by a Mrs. Greener. The one you showed isn't by her, is it? Surely looks a lot like her painting. It is gorgeous. I can't wait to see this cardie, too. Enjoy the fernery while you crochet away.

  21. Yes, my mouth is watering with tea and home-baked cakes... and a beautiful piece of crochet work next to it.
    Heart, what do you want more.
    Have fun, dear Kim, with yarn, with tea and with cake.
    I look forward to seeing your work.
    Lots of love from Viola

  22. Oh your flowers are just beautiful, and do like the meaning behind the pretty purple you have their, I love that shade of green for the background too! I bet it was very nice in there with the pretty sun shinning in!

  23. Wonderful squares with the purple daisies.
    What a great spot you have there, Kim.
    I love the beautiful vase.

  24. What a nice little setting for tea. Is that a sun room? I would love one of those. Your photos paint the picture of serenity, peace, and calm. It is what many of us long for. I suppose we have to create it in our own world in one way or another.
