Looking Ahead with Hope


Some of my favourites 2015 Instagram posts


Every blade of grass, 
each leaf, 
each seperate petal, 
  is an inscription speaking of hope.           
                   
                                                     Richard Jefferies

Some of 2015's Quilting Highlights




"Hope" is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tunes without the words -
And never stops - at all.

                                                       Emily Dickinson


As 2015 draws to a close, with all its highlights and challenges, I want to face each new day with Hope as my companion and to be brave enough to dream new dreams. Are you still brave enough to dream too?

Such a wonderful post with so many wonderful memories of 2015! Here's to another wonderful year. I love that Emily Dickinson quote. I used it recently as a typography on one of my bird images in preparation for a Calendar I am creating.
Wishing you and your family a blessed 2016 and I hope Jim is recovering well?
