Mmmmmmmm.... Daffodils!

Hi everyone!

So I just released a new pattern:  The Double Daffodil Brooch.
Daffodils may mean Spring to most people, but to me they also remind me of my very earliest childhood memory- eating a daffodil!

I was born in Springfield, Illinois.  Unbeknownst to me, this pretty urbane factoid would make me oh-so- fascinating when I moved to Argentina- everyone seemed sooo impressed that I was from the actual city from where the Simpson hail!  hey, I'll take it...)
I digress.  So I've been told that I had a fascination with flowers ever since I was a toddler. (Hence the flower patterns 40 some years later?)

I guess I liked daffodils soooo much, that I decided it would be a good idea to eat one!  On the very day we were moving from Springfield to our new home in Park Forest, Illinois!  Daffodils, being mildly poisonous, gave me an upset stomach, and then a rather technicolor vomit (eeew!)

But that's how much I love flowers!

If you'd like to make a daffodil, rather than eat one, click here to buy the pattern!

  3. Julie,
    That's is so lovely. Congratulations. It looks like very realistic. And although I never ate one (not that I remember, and from your description I guess I would), I love them too, as my mom used to plant them all along the terrace. That's a great story.
    How are you? Keep in touch, K?
