Time I saw the magnolia I thought of the beautiful one you created for the state quilt. So happy that you were able to so enjoy the real ones. Beautiful, yet sad story you shared. Thank you. I, too, wonder what happened to the curtain. Wish it could have been handed down to you :(


Oh how I was hoping that somehow you had received that beautiful curtain, but then she gave you far more, didn't she? Thank you for the beautifully told story.

The magnolia bloom is scrumptious.

I'd like to explain what's going on with my flower quilt. My darling hubby started work on my light box and never finished it. I sometimes wonder if I could finish it and am often convinced that I could, if he could remember what he's done with it. Right. In addition to not finishing it, he has lost it. Oh dear!


Love the sweet story. xo

Hi Vicki, When we bought our house, I was thrilled to see that there was a magnolia tree in the backyard. My grandma had one so mine makes me think of her. Ours bloomed very early this year, back in March. Then there were another couple of blooms about 2 weeks ago. They're so pretty!

Hugs, Pam


EWHat a wonderful story about your art teacher. I remember having an inspirational piano teacher who had a huge influence on my life. Lovely magnolia!
