Well how nice it is to see some sunshine around. My garden has burst into life over the past couple of weeks. I feel as if winter had just gone on and on, this year.

The sunshine meant the host of daffodils I have in my front garden burst into life. I do love daffodils, the way they always open with their fantastic yellow blooms just when you think there will never be any more colour outside. Unfortunately for my daffodils just when they had revealed all their lovely colour we had strong winds and heavy rain and oh dear he daffs did not like that weather one bit! So I had to go out and save lots of my poor battered blooms, so many were broken (but lots survived - yay!) . I put them in an old jam jar and then set about making the jar a wee jacket! And lo and behold this is what they became.

So simple, yet so pleasing :)

If you want to make your own the pattern is from Lucy at the fantastic Attic 24 blog.

Hope you are out and enjoying the spring sunshine.



  1. That's a lovely idea to jazz up a jam jar!

  2. Oooo those daff's look so nice in your revamped jam jar

  3. Very spring-like! Glad your crocheting skills are getting a work out. Love the Babette too - must get you to show me how!
