Do you remember this post when I showed you what I had just bought from the online shop – Hobbycraft, and asked if you had any idea what I was going to do with them?

fun fake flowers

Oh I have had SO much FUN with these fabric flowers ….. they created magic and transported me into another world……..

….  First I made myself a headband using the long wire stem of one of the big yellow Gerberas. The flower was sticking straight up as if it was growing out of my ear – well that just had me rolling about laughing, especially when friends and family joined in and tried it on – we got the giggles and could not recover til our sides ached.

Why didn’t I take photos???                      Just too busy laughing I suppose.


Then I calmed down and started to make a headdress… I just wound flowers (with wire stems) round the makeshift headband – it seemed to work.IMG_0127

This is me trying to take a photo with my new iPhone – I am not finding all this new technology easy and miss my little old cheap and easy Nokia….

….. and again


far too serious!

All this was in preparation for my birthday weekend (last weekend)….

much more to come ………. hundreds of photos to sort through ……….. i did have the most wonderful time ……. it wouldn’t have been everybody’s idea of the BEST birthday weekend…… but …..for a newly 65 year old Wild Daffodil it was just PERFECT!!!!!

I made

another headband ……  who is this one for??????IMG_0135

Can you guess?

My post is not about Yarny things in the making, but if you want to have a good old natter about all things yarny, pop on over to Cathy’s weekly Knit and Natter Friday – always a joy.

    Happy, happy birthday! I LOVED seeing those pictures of you. Can’t wait to read how you celebrated. I had my own birthday palooza a couple months ago, I know the best birthday celebrations are the ones that suit the birthday girl or boy.

    • Oh, isn’t that lovely to know we are so close in age – same vintage! I love that.
      I haven’t had a chance to drop in for a proper natter yet – hope to get there later and see the ‘orange’ advice.
      I expect you can see from the photos on the next post that my sister went for the comical single gerbera headband and the other more elaborate one was for my daughter – rocking that Kahlo look!


  11. I loved seeing your Facebook pictures – it looked like a fabulous weekend. What a lovely way to spend your birthday.

    • We did have such a fun time Jan, it was great to be able to share some of the nonsense on FB in real time – it felt like we were all in it together and i had you and other FB friends along with me for the silliness. I hope I can convey some of that sense of fun in the blog posts – if I ever get round to putting it all together…. time, time amazing how it slips by so fast.
