Coneflowers


"One Lone Coneflower"
design by Jan Goos of Goos Nest
published in Primitive Quilts and Projects Magazine Spring 2012



This is the project that I thought I would finish during our vacation in California.
I didn't finish then, but it is finished and being enjoyed now :)

Although this table mat may feature just one lone coneflower, my garden has a plethora of coneflowers. I think that I have become a collector of coneflowers:



"Green Envy"
 
"Tomato Soup"

"Fragrant Angel"
just to name a few...
And of course my garden wouldn't be complete without the traditional purple...
They are my current favorite flower.
Most mornings I wake up to find the goldfinches perched on the flowers eating their seeds :)
One morning there were five goldfinches at once!
There is still time to enter my August giveaway... Be sure to read the previous post.
 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are."
~Matthew 6:28-29

Beautiful! I love coneflowers. They had them on sale at our local Walmart just over a month ago, so I finally bought some. But, with the terrible drought & water cut backs, and dried up well... they don't seem to have made it. I guess I'll just have to look for some more next year.

Beautiful flowers and your piece came out beautifully. There are a lot of patterns in the magazines, I still plan to make, just need to finish what I started.

I thought my coneflowers would come back after the deer ate them, but no such luck. Love your work.

Hi Patti!...I LOVE this piece! And don't you just love all those new varieties of coneflowers? I am trying not to buy them...yet. I need to find the right spot. My mom has almost every new variety and I'm hoping by the time I find that spot, she will have babies to share with me :)

Next...I was looking back at your posts and oh my goodness, we were California at the same time! We were in Santa Barbara most of our trip. Funny though, we almost went up to San Luis Obispo (one of my CA favorite towns) to look for a piece of Lisa Leonard jewelery. I had a special piece of hers from my daughter (mother's day present) and it was taken from our hotel room this past February with a few other things :( It would have been such a surprise to run into you...do you think we would have known each other? Makes me laugh!!

Well I'm finally back from my blogging hiatus. It's always a pleasure to see what your working on.

Warm hugs ~ Jenn
