A summer heart...

... is a good thing to have on a cold, snowy April morning. Winter refuses to release its grip on us here at Taylorsoutback. Each morning I hopefully peek out the window; will it be greening grasses and budding trees or look more like this...

I jokingly told Mr. Outback this morning - let's sell the house, find an uncomplicated place to live in Arizona during the winter months and spend our summers in Valdez or Talkeetna, Alaska. He just laughed - but it works for me!

(Although - Our kids in Wasilla have experienced a very mild winter with little snow - hmmmm...go figure)

When you are housebound, the mind can wander into uncharted territory - while cleaning out more closets, drawers, continued decluttering and prioritizing 30+ years of accumulated quilting/sewing "stuff". My sewing room is beginning to feel somewhat lighter as I zero in on what really has captured my heart...moving more towards handwork and enjoying a slower approach...

Di Ford's 2014 Mystery Quilt - appliqueing the little circles on the current Part 2 Border...

Keeping up with the Benjamin Biggs Wedding Quilt blocks...#4

And more quilting on the Cherry Tree quilt...

All while waiting for the snow to go away and having my Winter heart thaw out...
