Little daisy pot holder!

This is a slightly melancholy post today as I am sharing with you my last project finished while living here in Switzerland.  By this time next week I will be in my new home in England.  I have mixed feelings about the move as we have been here in Switzerland a long time (18 years) so I am sad to go but, I am also looking forward to returning to England which, is where I am from originally. It feels like 'going home'!  We are also keeping a small home here in Switzerland so we'll be back to visit here on holiday! Yay!!



My last little project is a little daisy pot holder.  I used the same sketch that I used for my 'Daisy Days' wall hanging only this time I used only one daisy.



I embroidered the daisy onto a square of cream background fabric 3" x 3". Then I added strips of my favourite Tilda fabrics to the sides and then the top and bottom to make a 'Courthouse Steps' block.  I sandwiched this with some batting and backing.  Then I quilted it, trimmed it and added a narrow binding.  Lastly, I added a hanging loop.



This pot holder is already in the post to a very special friend of mine.  I hope she likes it!

It may be a little while until I am able to post again, so please bear with me. Thank you for visiting me!!

Au revoir Switzerland and hello England!!
