So sharp ... better than the real things, I think. I like front and back myself.
Such lovely pages to peek at ... I have a photo of my little grandson aged 4, setting off like that with his backpack. Always brings a lump to the throat. You will be so glad to have put these together in years to come. Hoping the readjustment is not too exhausting; cold after warm is not as energising as the other way round!

We have indeed been out on our bikes though it was a little less Spring-like than your photo :). You've made great use of the kit bits - how useful that it had a bike! As always, there's very clever use of colour - I like those little brads.

How fascinating! I wonder what the quilter would think?
Your Spring tag is just lovely - that's a very pretty design, in miniature.

Oh my, what a discovery! He must have been 'planted' there quite a while ago, looking at those roots and trunks?

Gosh, that's a tricky question to answer! A better climate would come high though. And waving to you - how nice to see such a lovely photo of you. I am heading off to google that book ..
The black and white actually seems to enhance the details of the architecture ... I like those pages with the pictures all clustered together like that.

Happy Birthday to Tracy! and I am sure he'd be touched to know how much effort and time you put into his great card. I can see this set will be getting a lot of use.

What a great day - sun and almost-Spring, and a skill learned: perfect! I am getting up a bit earlier each day in preparation for the time change here in a fortnight.

Isn't it nice to see grass again! Always interesting to compare photos ... Hope all is well with you.

The delicate texture of that pad makes a great foundation for your lovely cards.

Indeed yay you! And the intricacy of that quilt is very stunning, up close like this. Arrgh! for the grommets and rotary cutter. I've not used the former but my attempts with the latter seem to end up with lines which are curved, not straight :(. Well done on keeping going with the walking.
That's a beautiful young lady ... and the way you've put together the page is just so redolent of that era. I am sure she'd be very touched (and amazed) that so many of us across the world are joining in with your happy birthday wishes :).

Sewing happiness in a jar - how clever are you! I love this handy mini sewing 'box'. Your calendar is just beautiful; a simple and beautiful edge-to-edge photo and the dates - stunning. I like how you've added the list of what and where on the back so that there is nothing to visually get in the way of your stunning pictures.

I love your line about all the things you could ever need and didn't know! I went to the bike shop today for an inner tube and was amazed. Hoping you have a lovely time and some nice things just plop into your shopping basket :).

You are the queen of elegant cards, Karen! How exciting to have been able to meet up with Cheri :).

Honoré, it's absolutely beautiful! The colours and shapes are exquisite and I love the larger bold background into which it is set. Those delicate fleur-de-lys are so neatly stitched ... Sigh!

I really wasn't sure what to expect with a title like that! It seems technically very challenging, and a very striking visual result. Great colour combo.

Woah, love that dusk photo - amazing!

Oh my! What a huge contrast! Mind you, your home looks beautiful ... but I can see the attraction of those trees and that sunlight. Hope you have a glorious time.

Happy 600th! May the wine and friendship flow! Our summer time doesn't start for another fortnight yet, so it still feels end-of-winterish. That's a great photo redolent of Spring ...
Hoping that all has gone well for you today, Gail, and thinking of you ... You are doing an amazing job of blogging anything after such a long holiday and the inevitable catch-up stuff! Ice on top of snow? Your photo makes it all look so smooth and I'm trying to tell myself it must have been lovely (though not succeeding!).

Well, that's an interesting tip! And new to me ... The one I know and can vouch for, is that in order to stop the heads of tulips drooping, take a fine needle and pierce the top of the stem just below where the flower starts on each one :).

I am rather afraid Himself might not, as he went off without the camera! Still, he might be able to do something sneaky with his phone. Thank-you for your lovely comment :).
