Hope everyone had a good St. Patrick's Day.  Ours was quiet, cold/windy, but no snow!  Most of the snow is gone except where the huge piles were.  Everything is pretty much the same here, Norm's doing fine.  Working on Spring things and still swapping.  Brandy and I are back to walking...yea!  Made up 30 stick pins for being included with swap.  They are fun to make once you get going with them.

I'm very ready for some of this stuff to go away!  We had some melting today, but enough is enough.  Coldest February on record and so far 60" of snow so far.  I know nothing like Boston and NY, yes I like OH, but enough is enough.  Some of it is due to no thawing in January or February.  Norm is fine and ready to have his moustache off...LOL!  This doll is a pattern from Sherry Goshon, had a time with her, but I did get her together.  Her name is Lola.  Starting to get into some swaps again so this is good.  Time changes Sunday, but definitely no sign of Spring here!

Nothing new here even the weather is the same, except we had extreme cold and broke all kinds of records.  I always wonder how the outdoor animals stay warm and fed during this kind of weather.  Brandy seems to be handling it well, probably better then I am!  Thank goodness for crafting.  I had this Styrofoam wreath last year and finally did something with it this year!  I just tore strips of fabric about an inch and a half wide and wrapped them around the Styrofoam.  The ATC I made and the other picture is from Artchix.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day.  I had taken Norm's stuff to him yesterday. Thank goodness as we are being hammered with snow and cold.  We had our Euclid Beach sweatshirts on.  Euclid Beach Park was a biggie here in Cleveland years ago.  My grandfather ran the dance floor.  Lots of memories.

It was nice to see my driveway and have 3 days of no snow along with a bit of a warm up.  But alas we all know winter is not done and this week is not to be great.  Had the car in for a check up/oil change on Friday.  Everything is fine with it and did get it washed today so that I got the first half of winter off of it.  Norm decided to grow a moustache!  I'm not crazy about it, but it's something "he" can do and his "whiskers" grow fast.  This is the first time I've ever seen him with one!

Ended January with my 65th birthday.  Hard to believe, but it was sunny!  Spent the afternoon at Love n Care with Norm, they had music, pizza and bakery for the residents so it was nice.  Today we are blasted with snow.  Over 5" so far and it has not stopped.  This is an inverted heart doll pattern is by Cindee Moyer.

Happy New Year everyone!  We are in the deep freeze here, not a lot of snow thank goodness.  Probably 2" or so.  The holidays were fine, we celebrated on Christmas Eve at Love n Care, then Norm's birthday was January 2nd and it was one of the best birthdays he's had.  Brandy is fine, of all things she had a UTI, so it was an expensive vet bill, but I was glad they found it and she was great with taking the medication.  I stayed busy with swapping and doll patterns.  Actually made 10 dolls last year, so we'll see it I can do it again this year.  I think the biggest and saddest event of the year was I lost a dear musician friend to pancreas cancer, he was 70 and passed away just before Christmas.  My cousin on the other hand who still has the cancer is still in remission.  She's probably Jeff's age.  I hope every one is well and will try to post here from time to time.

In honor of winter and my first doll pattern of the year, this is Frosty.

Finding myself making myself come here to blog which isn't good.  So I will not be posting for the rest of the year and we'll see how it goes from there.  Life is pretty much the same and Norm is doing well for the most part.  Hope everyone has great holidays....also keep getting error messages here...
