St David’s Day – Free Daffodil Hexagon Pattern!!!

It’s St David’s Day!  Yay!!!  Whoo Hooo.  I love, love, love this day more than all the other festivals and events in the year – except maybe Christmas day if my presents are good.

For me, its an opportunity to revel in the fact that I am Welsh.  That my land is beautiful, my flag is cool, my national anthem is heart-rippingly good and my people are wonderful.  Oh, and also that the Welsh rugby team is awesome.  Its also a chance to wear a daffodil and eat cawl.

So, in celebration of all things Welsh I have designed a Daffodil Hexagon to share with the world.  Think of Wales when you make it!
