You've certainly caught up with this meme, haven't you!

I love the quote about penmanship. I've said for years that if I ever found a genie bottle, I'd use the first two wishes for something practical, and then for the third ask for beautiful, distinctive, legible, fast handwriting.

Oh, and I had tried to leave you a comment on that Blue Carl Larssen with the girl and the paintbrush, with the painter outside the window? I've always loved that painting. In fact, if I ever decide to recreate another C.L. painting in embroidery, that's the current top pick. I just love the juxtaposition of the two painters, focusing on the same spot of opposite sides of the wall....


The vicious margin notes would have influenced me too. :) I will never understand why people write in publicly owned library books that obviously do not belong to them (I generally cringe at the thought of writing in books altogether though). The weekend book sounds lovely!
