Magnolia Fleurs

Each year, right about the same time, I am completely inspired to add magnolias to my quilts or this beautiful mauve color to my fabric collections. Its like clockwork. Can you see why? I am surrounded by 3 of these trees and bushes in our garden and their blooms literally take over the entire side of our yard. Could there be anything more beautiful? This year… The tone of each tree is a tiny bit different than the next… I can still distract her almost anytime by asking her to count something… this time it was the petals! Smelling things works too… she loves to smell the most unusual things. You don't even want to know!    And last year… Gotta love watching the munchkin grow with the magnolias.    Don't you have a strange urge to go sew…
