I always look forward to the time when there are daffodils in the shops so that I can fill my rooms with them – the bathroom, the kitchen, the lounge. I love their sunnyness, they make me very happy when I look at them.

Cursley&Bond in Folkestone are creating a Field of Hope in their gallery made up entirely of daffodils. These are to be raffled off at a special prize-giving event on Mothering Sunday 2014 to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.
Daffodils are being made by many students, craft enthusiasts and professional designers in lots of different mediums including origami, wood, ceramics, felt, copper, silver and resin. I’ve opted for a felt daffodil as I love sewing so much.
