Everything is pretty much the same here.  I do think Spring is trying to show itself.  It certainly has been a long winter!

Been busy trying to do projects that were stashed away and also cut back on swaps.  One place just has too many a month, so I really want to pick and choose and it will also let me do my other projects in between.  This was one on the back burner.  The yahoo group I use to be in was all from overseas.  These are fiber pages 6x6 from 2011 and 2012.  We did a page a month and we chose our own theme.  Mine was obviously pink!  Since I don't have long hair and didn't want to purchase tons of elastic pony tail things, a caregiver at Love n Care donated one for the closer!

Finally all the snow is gone.  At least here.  We had rain last night, but we could use a week of drying out.  Norm is doing fine, we're working on getting him some more therapy to see if we can get him back up and moving around a bit.

These are felted ornaments.  Pattern is from Under the Garden Moon.  I'm giving these in with recent Spring swaps that I'm doing.

Spring is certainly taking its time getting here.  We are pretty cold here and had snow south of here.

This is a butterfly wreath I did for An Altered Place and the smaller one is the one I received back.  I swapped with a gal who lives in Hana, Hawaii (sure with I was there now) and she is Hawaiian.  It was fun to swap with her.

I'm finally seeing grass, though the lower part of our lot still has a lot of snow mounds from where I shoveled the walk and they cleared the drive.  If I don't see snow again it will be too soon, March can be nasty.

Been doing a lot of different things while cooped up over the winter.  Brandy and I did walk today and yesterday.  Her ears were bothering her and so I had her to the vet and they were packed with wax, this will teach me be faithful with putting drops in her ears.  I had slacked off due to my own health issues with sinus over the winter.  She is real good about letting me put them in too.  She got a much needed bath on Thursday and this may have triggered the ear issue otherwise I probably wouldn't have known took her to the vet on Friday.  She doesn't clean her own ears or fiddle much with herself like Bonnie and Patches did, so I have to guess...LOL...  Norm is fine his still has his sense of humor and Brandy visited him after the vet.

Everything is the same here.  Winter is just not wanting to go away even though it has been quiet.  Still a lot of snow on the ground, but we are 20 degrees below where we should be at this time.

This is an altered 4" peat pot I did for An Altered Place.  They really keep us busy in this group :)

We are extremely cold again and more snow after a February thaw.  It's very frustrating especially when I have to clear the incline on the drive before going anywhere.  Our plow guys come, but not early enough for when I go see Norm, so today I'm in and same with tomorrow.  I'll call him on the phone.  He's been sleepy the past couple of days anyway.

This little guy visited my birdfeeder last week.  My neighbor was all upset, but they are harmless and beneficial to the yard.  They don't hang from their tails like possums do, but they can climb.  They are Opossum (possums are not in the US, the O is silent) and normally out at night, but because of the hard winter he was at my feeder looking for food.  I have not seen him since.  He was actually more afraid of me, I was just surprised to see it!

We have had a February thaw, but still snow mounds on the ground and we get colder again the middle of the week.  Please bring on Spring and soon!

This is the other Valentines I received from swaps before the month ends!  ATCs were from Art4Joy blog swap and the large 10" heart  is from Elaine Mullens over in An Altered Place.

Love n Care had a Valentine's Day Party!  We had such a good time!  Our (Norm's and mine) long time friend keyboard player Rob Shuss played for the afternoon.  It was great to hear him again.
