6 weeks of winter per the Ground Hog.....

Too bad it seems like summer here all the time, some days are little bit cool, but nothing that I would call any wheres near winter like weather.  I see people with coats, hats, gloves etc. on, when I'm out wearing a sweater, or long sleeve shirts.    I miss having 4 seasons and would have enjoyed seeing a little snow over Christmas, but we got rain instead.  Oh well, maybe next year.

My brother is big into Ground Hog day, and the cake was made by him for his celebrations.  I didn't download the meatloaf he also makes, maybe next year.  We've done many a party on February 2nd over the years with family and friends.  Sometimes they were in Michigan, and then later on in Chicago.  I wish we all lived closer so we could continue the tradition, but maybe not this year at least not at his house :).  This is what his neighborhood looks like, and yes that is the street sign and a stop sign.  

So what have I been doing all week?   I've been stitching a little bit on my lunch hours.  Since both of my other two projects have all the stitching done, I've changed my travel projects and switch between these two each day.  You can't see the silk lame shine on the light green on the City of Oz.  I really love how it looks.  I'm not too happy with the greens in the grass, but thought I'd add french knots for the poppies, which may change it and I'll be happier with it.  I've just started Dorothy's shoes.  The shoes will have sequins on it and hoping to put a bows on it as well.  I think they will look great when I'm done. Now to remember where I put the sequins, I thought that i put them with the threads, but they aren't there.  Oh well, I'm sure I'll find them before it's time to start putting them on.  

going to pull something out to stitch on today and tomorrow.  It's Super Ball stitching time.  Need to order my pizza today as well.  I'm OK with left over pizza, love it for breakfast :)  

Happy stitching to you all.
