What does it mean...


"Home is Where the Heart Is"? We hear the saying often, yet what does it mean to each of us? Returning from Mexico, the definition has changed for myself. I've loved every visit to this country and it's beaches...but this year, I left a little of me and what touched my heart behind. Sentimental "things" were stolen by someone whom I sure had little to no heart.

I always thought I would live there some day...probably only a dream. I love Mexico and it's people...that will not change. I am saddened by my loss, however, I'm going to think of it as leaving a piece of my heart at home in Mexico. After all, I returned to a loving husband, friend and grandgirls who will surely listen to my woes for a few days. Thank you too for listening, I know now...

My heart is my home...keeper of all memories...who can take that away?

"Double digit days"...

At least that's what a friend said to me on Thursday. Interesting way of saying another month is passing?! So this will be the end of Valentine finishes. Oops...the emery is a Blackbird Design Christmas ornament but it's still a finish in my book.
"Live Laugh Love" by La-D-Da is a favorite! Truly, I do purchase patterns with the idea in mind to duplicate the designer's vision...yet when finding another $.25 cent frame (in the basement no less), how could I not do a little improvising? A little black paint on top of a red frame and a bit of sanding was perfect for this piece.
If you do nothing else this week...Live, Love and Laugh!

Snowed in or under...

What would you call it? It seems as though all throughout the country there is cold and snow, and for myself that means staying in continuing with the organizing. I am fortunate not to be out driving in snow and ice but I sure am shoveling the excess piles around here! Finding so many kits, patterns, linen fabric and even quilting projects makes me feel as though I'm living in an indoor blizzard!
Help...how do I dig out?
