Thanks, Peggy. The wind is howling here now and the garden is water-logged, but otherwise all is well.
It’s sweet that Billy has a bit of a crush on Jolena – he’s such a little gentleman. As for learning from each other here, well, I’ve learned heaps and am often cheered and inspired by everyone’s posts.I love it on this forum.

Thanks, Peggy. The wind is howling but we are safe and sound.
Aww. So cute Billy is sweet on Jolena. And, yes, we may be a small forum but there’s a lot of talent here. I learn lots from everyone, plus everyone is so nice!!
Ginny and Pam, stay safe!
I’m glad you like the poem. The inspiration was the Goetz group on Ravelry’s KAL for Victorian Valentines and Tea. I had to make something to participate, then I noticed that Valentine’s Day was on Friday, so the logical thing was to write about it and set it in Victorian times. Then I thought about nursery rhymes and poems that were popular during those times, so the logical thing was to write it as verse. I’ve done that before; in fact, the first story to appear in the blog was about Little Miss Crocker. I think Billy has been sweet on Jolena ever since he first saw her. She’s athletic, so a young boy would admire her. They’re good friends, as well. It was fun to do.
Pam, thanks for the inspiration from your “Carrots” outfits, too. We learn a lot from each other, don’t we?
Peggy, that’s delightful! And all in rhyme too! You are clever. I love the photos – your two ‘lovers’ are charming. Thank you for this unexpected gift on a gloomy day, when here in the UK we are anxiously waiting and hoping that Storm Dennis won’t cause more damage and flooding.
Ginny, I love that Billy reminded you of Oliver! He’s looking at something higher than a horse, but of course, you can’t see how far away he is. People have guessed kites, balloons and birds. Almost everyone thought the bag was to collect something, but something is inside it. Someone on Ravelry guessed pretty close to what the story is about.
There are a lot of stitches in the Cabbagetown, but it’s well worth it!
I was travelling yesterday so missed all these recent interesting posts.
Nicole, I think I can see what you mean – a sort of ‘snowman’ where the show has fallen on the bush?
I can’t think what Billy is doing, unless he is seeking inspiration, but’s that’s more in Mariah’s line. Is he looking at something very tall? A horse? I love the outfit too – he looks like Oliver Twist (after he’d been taken in by Mr Brownlow, not when he’s in the orphanage or living with Fagin!)
Lovely photos of cosy winter coats.
Good to see your trio in their Cabbagetown jackets, Pam – it makes me want to knit that pattern for Robin and Imogen.
Peggy, I love that photo of Vroni in her Tyrolean outfit – the hat is perfect. She looks as if she’s just setting out on a hike.
