Our daughter crafted this February banner. It was an unexpected treat to open the parcel. It commemorates not only Valentines’ Day. Cutouts of Washington and Lincoln represent both president’s birthdays and a snowflake reminds us we are only half-way through winter. Two Valentine envelopes sealed with hearts and outlined with blue blanket stitching surround the heart outlined in a chain stitch. All panels are pastel felt and are sewn to a grosgrain blue ribbon. Thank you Kelly!
The table is set for an informal Valentine lunch with friends who came for “A Jet Tour Through The Revelation.” I remembered that my geraniums were blooming downstairs and added rose and pink blooms to the vase.
