Lost in Time...


The name of this pattern is Lost in Time by Johanna Lindahl.  I think it is because it is designed to have a vintage feel.  But, one could also imagine it is because you can lose yourself (timewise) while working on it.  The pattern is very clear and easy to follow.  I'm just already dreading weaving in the ends from every color change.  Arrrghhh...  Final opinion of this one is TBD.


Just had to share this cute little table decoration from a golf tournament recently.  If those little critters don't make you smile... well, you are just having a really bad day.  Ha!


I've been enjoying many WHITE blossoms.  This bloom is on a clipping I received from a friend only a few weeks ago!  She said the name of the plant is Queen of the Night; I imagine because you can only see the blossoms late at night (or, as for me, EARLY in the morning).


I enjoyed seeing these beautiful rays through the dark clouds while walking down hole #5 this weekend!  Probably shouldn't have even been out there with the forecast and I have to admit I DID end up getting wet!  But, oh, it was gorgeous!  Unfortunately, the downpour ended my round halfway through hole #8.


I can't begin to say how much I've savored the sight and scent of these gardenias!  Smells heavenly out our back door!  


Albert Einstein:
  • “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
  • “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
  • “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
  • “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

I found this little collection of quotes on a Ravelry page.  Loved them all, but have been most captured by the last one.   Isn't that the truth?!  

Have a wonderful week.

You have such an eye for picking gorgeous patterns and those colors are outstanding. We had gardenias in Florida. Love the smell. Have a wonderful day.

What a pretty shawl.
You always do such beautiful work, and I'm sure that your color choices will be spot on!

Wow.. those are some beautiful blossoms. Oh, I wish we could grow gardenias here.. how lovely that would be.

Glad you enjoyed your soggy golf game, and so glad you didn't get zapped!
You certainly captured a gorgeous sight, with the light and the clouds.

Yep. That is one cute and creative bird. It does make me smile.

Wow, that is lovely. What yarn are you using? I love, love the colors. I have added this to my Q on Rav! :) I love those rays of sunlight you took the picture of...it's like God sending down a little hug to let you know He's thinking of you. God is everywhere, if we only bother to look. Wishing you a most lovely day sweet friend. ((hugs)).

Enjoyed your snippets and white flowers. I always seem to track with your color choices of yarn and this shawl looks like a lovely pattern. It's nice to get lost in something…kind of relaxing!

Hi Tanna, I love the quotes, the last one is so true. The scent of gardenias is heavenly, I wish we could grow them here. Loving the colors in the beautiful shawl! Have a great day!

I love white flowers at night or early a.m. Gardenias smells so heavenly. Your shawl is so lovely. Such rich colors. I made a quick trip to the grocery yesterday and got rained on - had to come home and blow dry my hair! lol

A beautiful shawl. I love the colors!! My great grandmother had a flowering Queen of the Night. When we visited her in Kentucky, my sisters and I were enchanted with those nightly blooms. Thanks for the memory.

Best,
Bonnie

As usual that shawl is gorgeous. The colors are fantastic. I know, you finished a project and then have to finish off the lose ends, not the fun part!

Bonnie said...

I always love seeing your work. Very pretty pattern and colors.

It has rained almost an 1 1/2 inches today but the sun is peeking out now.
Love your gardenias. I adore their scent and am enjoying mine also.
Your new flower is amazing. I've never seen one before.
Have a great week, Tanna.

I wish gardenias grew in Ohio! They are wonderful!

Beautiful sun rays! Wow!

You gotta love Mr. Einstein. Love those quotes.

Lost in Time is beautiful, it looks very intricate. I love gardenias and have been enjoying mine so much. I have six bushes that all bloom at a slightly different time. Enjoy!

Lynne said...

Love the quotes . . . those are great . . .
The final one, true . . . makes me think . . .
Love your shawl beginnings . . . very nice!
I love gardenias. I can't imagine what it would be like to live
where temperatures would let them flourish and thrive right in the back yard.
Oh my . . . the fragrance.
And the white nighttime, or early morning, flower is stunning.
Must read up on it!
Happy Memorial Days Tanna . .

Weaving ends. Ugh! But the shawl is looking gorgeous. And yes, that little birdie sure is a cute one. I do love quotes ... always looking them up, writing them down, saving them to notes on my phone, using them in posts ... daily inspiration. I'm grateful to still be enjoying a few blooms around here, too. That Queen of the Night is awesome! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

That little table decoration is a hoot! How fun! Yes, the gardenias are amazing! Love how many you have on those trees out back. Makes lounging out there all the better. =) XOXO

Donna said...

I love that you took the time to take the photo of the stormy sky with sunshine streaming through. That is one of my favorite sights always. Gardenias remind me of my mother. She loved them. Here's to a dryer round next time you go golfing. Love, d.

Tricia Buice said...

The shawl and the colors are wonderful - it is going to be so pretty! Sorry about your golf game but the beautiful rays of the sun must have been worth it! The Queen of the Night is gorgeous - what a wonderful plant! Hope you are both doing great. Have a lovely day :)

Rose said...

I love everything here...but I think I love the quotes best of all. I am especially drawn to the one about logic getting you from A to B but imagination will take you everywhere....and the last one is so true, too.

Lost In Time is sure beautiful, and that critter would make anyone smile...

Dewena said...

My second laugh of the day was on that last quote! Excellent! Now if we can remember that to not only see everyone we meet as a genius but keep a watch over our self-talk. (My first laugh was when I saw the little birdie!)

Gardenias were one of the things I did love about Florida when we lived there!.So intoxicating!

A good Memorial Day weekend to you,
Dewena
