One I've Been Working on for a While

Last Daffodil Day,
August last year???
I received a lovely bunch of
Cancer Council Daffodils.
Lovely brightness
cheering the last days of winter.
The flowers spoke,
they needed to be made everlasting for a 
Kitsch Teacosy.
After perfecting the flower pattern
and making stems and the cosy itself
I couldn't work out how I wanted to use them
so this half clothed teapot has sat on a shelf
awaiting inspiration
ever since.
I still don't really know
where it will end.....
Yellow is not really my "colour" I fear.
Any suggestions from you
lovely talented and inventive
readers?

    1. Oh, thanks Margaret, you're very kind! After googling pics of daffodils, I think what is needed is more stems/leaves to balance out the top heavy look of the flowers......

    1. Heheh Robin, you are so easy to please! Thanks you for dropping in, sorry the teapot was empty :( I believe there will be not only some more leaves added but also a sprinkling of little flowers to help tie it all together. This one is for my brother who put in an order for a new cosy ;)

    1. Hi Gill! Thanks for visiting, next time I hope the teacosy will be finished and I can offer you a cuppa :) Oddball teacosies are such fun. You take care and don't work too hard, you need time for enjoying your own miniatures too mate.

  10. te ha quedado precioso, eres una artista del ganchillo y en mini mucho más artista, ya que a este tamaño no será tan fácil trabajar con ese nivel.
    Un abrazo
