Hello and welcome! It’s definitely a waiting game here at the Hearth and Soul Link Party, as lockdown restrictions are gradually lifted. We wait for the children to go back to school this week, leading to when we may be able to meet with family and friends outside in late March and, hopefully, on from there to actually being able to go into one another’s homes again. How are things in your corner of the world?
The Hearth and Soul Link Party welcomes blog posts about anything that feeds the soul. Things that feed the soul may include (but are not limited to) recipes, decorating, crafts, family, home, DIY, organization, travel, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
What’s Been Happening
My husband and I are taking some time out next week to celebrate his birthday and our 30th wedding anniversary. I’m really excited to spend some relaxing time together, and hopefully with family and friends on FaceTime and Zoom. It has made me think a lot about why it’s important to take time out regularly to replenish your resources.
I also share easy ways you can take time out, with some ideas that take as little as a few minutes.
Bookings are filling up for the Afternoon Tea class I am offering in April. Join my friend Jen of Fearless in the Kitchen and I in a live online class to make a complete British afternoon tea in your own kitchen. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity! You can find out more by clicking here.
I’ve also been thinking about healthy vegetarian recipes, so I featured one of my favourites.
My Easy Vegetable Tagine is hearty vegetarian comfort food (and we all need comfort food during a waiting game). There are options to make it vegan and gluten free too.
If you are looking for a quick and easy dessert that uses store cupboard ingredients, I’ve definitely got a treat for you.

Thank you all for sharing your wonderful content.
A Waiting Game Featured Posts
Featured posts (from top left, clockwise):-
So many of us are looking forward to Easter and spring. Renae of Peacock Ridge Farm shared some wonderful Easter inspiration in How To Create An Easter Tablescape.
If you fancy a craft project as we play a waiting game, Kristi of French Creek Farmhouse has step by step instructions to help you create a sweet Cross Stitch Four Leaf Clover in time for St Patrick’s Day. This would also make a lovely gift.
I’m doing a lot of reorganising as we wait for the lifting of lockdown restrictions and one of the places I’m spending a lot of time is in my library. I was very taken with How To Make A Fabric Book Cover from Hello Sewing as I do have some very old books I’d like to protect.
And there’s nothing like a little comfort food during times like these. Don’t miss this Authentic Gulf Coast Shrimp Creole from Chris and Melissa of Little Frugal Homestead.
On with the party!
