And another one in progress

I just noticed that I have 1500 followers! How exciting, what a milestone.

Thank you to each and every one of you for being here!

Someone once wrote in the comments that Wild Daffodil is like a Crafts Magazine, and I loved that. One of the greatest joys of blogging is to share inspiration and ideas and give and receive support for all forms of creativity.

But the greatest joy is undoubtedly the sense of community that builds and the meeting of like minds – I really do thank you for every single visit to the blog, every like and especially every second spent taking the time to comment.

I really do value the wonderful friendships made along the way, that enrich my life and my creativity.

Huge hugs are beaming their way across the miles to you.


To mark this milestone, I would be interested to know

1. What you enjoy most about Wild Daffodil?

2. Β What you would like to hear more about?

As a little Give Away, I will send one of the above pieces of textile art, when finished, to one of you picked at random.

Thank you for being here!

  1. Congratulations and well deserved! I like the mandalas too and would agree you should follow your bliss – we’ll all come along. πŸ™‚

    • How lovely to know from all the comments that mostly keeping doing what I’m doing is tickety-boo! A few more mandalas and garden info is all that has been requested – thank you Susan – you have encouraged me to contemplate a new mandala. ❀ πŸ™‚


  2. I love the way you think outside the box and just go with the creative flow – it fascinates me how we all start with the same kit but end up with such different pieces.

  4. I’m “new” here, (since the world changed, and we took that leap to look at another comment on some one else’s blog) and then stayed to keep in touch. Last week I surfed around your site and can see you are a “person who never sleeps” – one of the first things that grab my attention is your banner with brightly coloured flowers…they just sing.

    • Your comment makes me smile – thank you for letting me know you like the banner, I sometimes wonder if I should change it in case readers are fed up with it – you have given it a new lease of life! ❀ πŸ™‚

  8. I have particularly enjoyed your creative textile journey and taking part in the #twinchies . As for what I’d like to see more of its difficult for me to say; as a creative person myself I would find other people’s expectations of blog content a killer of creative joy. I would rather see where your creative journey takes you.

    • Thank you Tracey.
      I know what you mean about ‘expectations killing creative joy’ – that’s why I don’t do commissions, but a nod to what people like can sometimes help me focus – as you can no doubt tell, I am a bit of a grasshopper, jumping off at tangents all the time.
      I am happy to share wherever the spark leads me and I’m glad to have you along for the ride.
      Thank you for joining in with the Twinchies – I am excited to see what happens next with them.

  9. I find your blog inspiring but would like more on your garden.

    • Thank you Tracy, I am so pleased to know you find inspiration here.
      Most of my garden is a complete shambles! So I only tend to show the bits that I think would be of interest. Of course you might like to see the mess?! Maybe I could give a video tour of all the chaotic bits. πŸ™‚

  12. these are so lovely. I like that your skill-set and art / craft is so different from mine – as you’ll experience later this week – I’m about to drop my Twinchies into a post box πŸ™‚ and I Think I’m very happy with the balance of stuff that you share – I have no suggestions to make Thanks for allowing me to join in with the twinchies, it’s been great fun to do something very different. I’ve just scheduled them as my september scraphappy – but let me know if you would prefer I wait, I can save it up for another month. Hugs

  13. I enjoy watching your experiments – more like a craft laboratory than a craft magazine 😁

  14. I think I recognised a kindred spirit when I saw one, but one with more courage to have a go. Just keep on doing and sharing please.xx

    • Yes Yes!!! A kindred spirit definitely. I am so glad I got to meet you and spend some quality time with you and Mr E in Yorkshire. I can’t thank you enough for introducing me to the wonderful work of Helen Birmingham, it has opened up a whole new world for me and revived my love of embroidery. I have loved being on the Stitchbook journey with you. xx ❀ πŸ™‚

  15. I love seeing how you keeping things interesting by trying all sorts of fascinating, unusual and sometimes downright bizarre things in the name of creativity. I wish I had a fraction of your energy and curiosity πŸ™‚ (PS, I’d LOVE the onion bag/coral fan piece!)

    • HaHa! Yes ‘downright bizarre’ is right!
      Thank you so much Kate for your lovely comment, supportive friendship and wonderfully helpful comments and suggestions, and of course I’m thinking coral when I say that πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ ❀
