The first daffodil was called the narcissus and its name originates from Greek mythology. A nymph called Echo was in love with a young boy called Narcissus who was obsessed with his own handsome looks. He broke off their relationship and Echo was so heartbroken that she hid in a cave and died. Later, Narcissus saw his face in a pool as he leaned over to see himself better, he fell in, drowned and became the narcissus flower.
The beautiful bloom is much loved as one of the first flowers of spring, and you can use it to decorate a table cloth with this stunning project. Embroider it onto a yellow gingham cloth for the perfect finish using a number of popular embroidery stitches. It's very hard-wearing too, so it will be flowering for years and years!
