I was thinking of you earlier in the week when I saw a magnolia tree in bloom. Glad yours is blooming for you.
(and my own little exhale: time for bed...)

M-H

I once knitted a jmper with a magnolia tree in bloom on the front. Brown spindly branches, magenta and white flowers, knitted as elongated bobbles *in both colours*. I must have been mad. It was mohair. It was the eighties. And I sold it for quite a lot of money. And I don't even have a photo.

Thanks for the link to Garnstudio, they have great stuff.

I love magnolias....

and your pattern is wonderful - I can't wait to start knitting it up.

shula

um...

Are we still breathing......?

shula

Oh,

And you cost me an ENTIRE EVENING at Garnstudio.

stinkerbell

i like how you breathe :)
i should copy you some...

Jussi

that lamb was not very bright - what would have happened if Mary walked past the butcher?

good to hear that the week was a success!

Carson

lambs are so meek.
perhaps a lamb in wolf's clothing?
glad to hear the pattern's doing well, and that you survived first week back.
not so glad to hear about the Siren Repetoire.
just keep breathing.
memo to self: advice i should heed myself :)

well done on first week back. glad you have some 'knit time' ahead. lovely links, too, thank you.

michelle

Creative, productive and still breathing. Lovely.

You are still breathing arn't you?

Those first few weeks back without human appendages are heartbreaking - for me anyway. Hope you're doing OK.

Mary

The funny thing is that I found myself inhaling and exhaling as I read your instructions to do so.....

joyce

back to the grind...but you're surviving...and so active in the knitting and sewing arenas...

helle

Wonderful work. I love the description of the noises your chidren make....... chuckle.

kae

haha I felt myself exhaling and inhaling as well :)

Vasilisa

Oh dear, that picture symbolizes very well how I feel about knitting. Like my knittings stretch into eternity, a mammoth task. Thanks for the recipe!

Whitney

love your blog - it is so serene and REAL! I love knitting but am horrible at counting the stitches, so long scarfs and square quilts for me! Thanks for sharing.

charlotte

I made that for Astrid (minus the pasta) and it's opened up a whole new world of ideas for us.

Astrid says thank you and she would love more of your yummy recipes :)

Bel

Mmmmmm. Yum. Ricotta and tuna.

Victoria

We have two magnolias in our front yard, both now gloriously in bloom.

I can so empathise with returning to work. It's always a balance isn't it - there are so many things we want to do and achieve, we're so hard on ourselves, no wonder we mums suffer burn out! I have no doubt you're doing a wonderful job, just look at how happy your children are to remind you - and that's just the non paying one!

Helen

Your pattern is beautiful, I am going to make it for my size 3T 21 month old right away. He had one like this when he was a 6 month old and I love it but he outgrew it too fast, so the 3T size with DK wool should be perfect. Thank you so much.

Magnolias are one of my favourite flowers/plants of all time.

Hiya

My husband has recently left us and so its just been me and my boy to feed lately and spag bol for the past 3 weeks has not been a highlight. Your pasta has been a hit - yay he likes something else.

Thanks
