Flower Friday: January 22, 2020

 Happy Flower Friday!

Spring is only 57 days away!

Today Lorraine shared some wonderful photos:

Her violets are in full bloom and so is this lovely orchid!

This past week was Lorraine's birthday and she received a lovely bouquet of alstromeria:

Happy Birthday Lorraine!

Alstromeria are my favorite bouquet flowers.  They last for a long time and don't tolerate the cold here in the Northeast.  I hear they grow wild in California.

I'm not the garment maker--Beth is.  But I am an embroiderer and even if I wasn't, I'd have to point out Dr. Jill's wonderful dress from the evening of the inauguration.  Check this out:  She had flowers from all the 50 states embroidered on the dress.  Over her heart were the flowers of Delaware.  This is lovely so check it out here.

Also love that wonderful table topper!  GORGEOUS!

Here's a hexagon/floral quilt from the early 20th century.  It was made well before the hexie craze of the 1930s and the top is in tough shape but we always liked the layout:

Have a safe and happy day!

  1. I saw Dr. Biden's coat, too! Isn't that amazing?! It reminded of the story about the women in England who sewed and embroidered Queen Elizabeth's wedding gown - all by hand!
