 This Daisy Granny square was designed in July 2009 and I then made into a rug in November 2009...
Lots of cushions and blankets have followed.
There were lots of the daisy motifs left over, l found them the other day......and because l couldn't work on the swing seat cover
I decided to try and finish the 3rd project, almost but not quite finished 

Just popped in for some ivory wool but came out with one or two yummy new yarns to play hooky with
isn't this lovely?...A random Cotton/viscose/bamboo yarn and a quick Japanese flower

l still have quite a few of the granny squares left to play with too...mmmmm 
another project for the weekend away?

Yellow centre
White flower
20 colours in a rainbow effect
YARN: 1 Strand of chunky or 2 strands of DK
HOOK: 6 mm

Ch4, sl st into circle, magic circle or a finger wrap of 4 wraps.
ROUND 1: 8dc into circle (Ch2 as the 1st dc) slip stitch to finish
ROUND 2: 8 Cluster sts, of 3dc, one in each stitch with 2 chain between each cluster making the 'FLOWER' sl st, to complete.
ROUND 3: Ch2 as 1st dc, 2dc in same st, ch1, 3dc in same stitch (corner) 3dc in next stitch (side) *3dc, ch1, 3dc in next stitch (corner) 3dc in side stitch* repeat for all sides, sl st, to complete
