Crochet - Daisy Applique

FUN! I was teaching a friend of mine how to do flowers. She brought over some instructions that make the daisy look like an octopus. So here is my version of a Daisy Applique. These are great for the Spring time! I am working on a Crochet bunny for next week it. Hopefully it works out. I just have to brag a little bit here for a second. Gage got 2nd in his pinewood derby race for scouts. I don't know who was more excited Trent or Gage.Trent is already brainstorming how to do next years race.
