Lazy Daisy Madness...

It's true, I went a little nutzo with the lazy daisy's recently. One evening about a month ago, I was in between projects (read: avoiding a certain project) and I got the urge to stitch, so I grabbed some fabric and my crazy nest of a floss basket and started making some flowers... nothing special, just some simple lazy daisy's... which over the next week or so expanded in color and size until I had a plethora of them stretching into a rainbow (side note: I LOVE rainbows! A couple of you have had this convo with me already, teehee.) in the shape of a diamond. I was going to show this to you guys, honest to peanuts... but since it was just a doodle, and not really made for any purpose other than to alleviate my evening boredom (I hate it when Sean works on swing shift), I just stuck it in my Flickr account where it has been sitting until today...
 when it was featured on Feeling Stitchy!


This is the third time one of my pictures has been featured on this blog, and I have to tell you I feel SO incredibly honored and flattered. I don't feel like the things I do are anything too special, not when there are so very many talented people doing so many mind blowing things out here in Bloglandia.  When something I've made gets picked up by the folks at FS... well, gosh I just can't hardly believe it.
Wow.

This girl is rarely speechless.

Here's another couple of shots from farther away.

Thank you Feeling Stitchy, you totally made my day!
Have a great weekend everyone!

oxo,
Lisa

Congratulations, Lisa!! I love that stitchy-goodness of yours, and love that I got to see it in person! I love that first photo so much. It just makes me happy. Because hearts and rainbows make me happy, happy, happy. Those colors are so yummy! Kinda' like the pastries we bought last night at the Greek Festival-- Yummmmm! (Sooo good with coffee this morning!)
Hugs,
Jill

Hi Lisa, I really must thank YOU for making such a lovely piece! I'm always looking for photos that are perfect to talk about Especially Awesome Stitches. And all that Lazy Daisy talk and your piece inspired me to make that Lazy Daisy Peacock Feather variation as well. Keep up the good work! :)

I think this is simply beautiful! Your blog/posts/needlework are always so cheery and cheerful, it puts me in a good mood just to see them! This, though, makes me want to grab my embroidery floss and start making some daisies!
