FLOWERS AND MORE FLOWERS

I have to confess something quite humorous.......I ordered this many flowers to use at the photo shoot for my new book, Not Your Grandmother's Quilt due out in April......however, I didn't anticipate there would be this many flowers. You can imagine my surprise when I walked into the floral shop and there sat all these flowers.....for me! I started laughing when I saw them all. ~~ I had ordered them over the phone since I was going to Missouri, but afterwards I went into my local floral shop and told them what I had ordered and asked if they thought that would be too many. The gal at my local floral shop (whom I know well) said she thought that amount would be fine... and I didn't want to be short....nothing like wishing you had something you didn't. ~~~ I did NOT use this many flowers, in fact, we hardly used any. My mom and sister went with me to Missouri. When we loaded the flowers into the back seat of the rental they took over the entire back seat and floor,there was harely any room for my poor mom to sit. As I recall, we even had them in the front seat on the floor so my sister barely had room... After the photo shoot we gave them to a little grade school and told the office staff to hand them out to the teachers as a teacher appreciation day. NOTE TO SELF: you do not need as many flowers as you think you do! I still smile when I think about it!
