Brilliant news! I just love that happy photo of you second down on the left :). Well done times a squillion, as my DS used to say.

I didn't know this poet's (or artist's) work so thank-you for both. And lovely to know a bit more about your own heritage. I wondered about your name - how romantic and delightful your mother fell in love with it and saved it for you! And such a warm, respectful family life you've enjoyed ...
Ah, what a lovely photo - such delightful smiles. Wishing Dolly a Happy Birthday (I have an Auntie Dolly too!). That binding sounds a nightmare - I so admire your persistence and determination.
What a pretty-looking planner ... I am trying to resist the temptation to google. You find the loveliest things. We're not noticing Spring here yet - days of heavy rain, flooded flower-beds and general gloom.
I like anything with Zen in the title :). Slow, mindful clothwork would be lovely. I really need to start ... I have that Stitch Stories book too - doesn't the cover have a delicious feel?

I can't wait to feel the warmer, drier air - though it can feel there is so much to do! Taking Annie's approach sounds much more relaxing. It will be nice to wear less for walking too ...

Oooh, that's exciting news about your beautiful quilt! I do like the photo of Norman :).
I sympathise about too many open Windows - except this is how it feels in my brain and I am running out of RAM ... I need to close some tabs I think :). I like your cheerful Waterlogue and hope that you will have had some brightness by now.
I am amazed at the St. Patrick's Day parade! I was brought up in Ireland and never saw one once ... It looks like such a lot of fun, and everyone seems to be having a good time (including the much-kissed military!). Your card for Tracy is perfect - a great companion for travelling through life.
I don't know about Bill Ding(s) but the much worn and loved book I do :). Lovely montage ...
Well, that's a sophisticated kind of pencil sharpener! My DD would love one - I shall have to investigate :). And a lovely, bright photo. I love some of those book title: off to google!
Wow! Huge congratulations are in order! I think my blog is older but wouldn't have half the number of posts you have! And to blog for months consecutively is another mega-achievement. I am always behind in catching, and looking forward to reading backwards, so as to speak. Blog friendship is indeed, lovely.
Your waterlogued photo is just stunning ... Thank for the heads up about the skies. I'll let Himself know - he'll be keen to get the telescope out!
That's a beautiful tapestry of plants and stones ... Great inspiration for a quilt, if you're looking :). Those candy hearts with a message on are called Love Hearts over here, and they're made in a sweet factory about ten miles away!

Wey-hey! Is it done? Getting ready to pirouette :).

Kim Manley Ort is new to me, so thank-you for the info. I am so looking forward to seeing how this develops for your during the year. The photos you've posted are already lovely! I was wondering if you also knew about Kim Klassen's classes? I enjoyed her Be Still and My Still Sunday last year.

Aren't these just super? The one of Norman on the worktop made me smile (after I called out "Yikes! Haven't you got a set of little folding steps?): such an unusual subject for a watercolour and yet so full of visual interest! Each one made me gasp more than the one before and your final one would grace any wall. They'd make a great set of cards ...
These are all delightful - the colours are beautifully strong against the white. Blues and purples are so difficult to photograph, I find. A lovely trio ...
That's a very upbeat and positive start to the year :). I must look up about the Women's March ... I like your list for January - such a great idea.
I am a great fan of 'good enough' :). These pages look wonderful and the photos and stories just shine centre stage. Sorry to be late, but hoping to be able to keep up a bit better soon.

Such a mixture of things in your week ... I hope the goodbyes will have fond remembrances in too. And your tree looks wonderful - such a great height. i am with you on the dental front (ugh), and will be experiencing the delights of physio next week for the first time :).

Watching and thinking and planning sounds just right for this time of year ... I've missed loads of your posts, but am glad to be able to catch up and find such a beautiful photo today.
Your planner look so very pretty ... I will definitely go and follow your links. Your comment about witty versus functionality made me smile - I'd be right with you there!

Ahhh! Such a bright and happy shot. I love letters written to others in scrapbooking.
Oh golly, it's hard when we can't get to sleep :(. I think if I'd had a chance to be in your lovely studio, I'd be so entranced I wouldn't have slept either! The worst thing I find is that if I wake one night, I seem to get into a pattern of it for a few days. Taking lots of walks so I'm physically tired, not drinking fluids after 8 p.m., and writing lists so I'm not carrying anything in my head usually seems to do the trick. Hoping you find something that works ...
