February.... Really?

First of all, where has the time gone?  I'm not talking just about this past year, I'm talking about the last 15 years!!  When my ex and I were having this house built back in 1997, I started making cute individual applique pieces to put on a sofa table at the foyer to welcome guests and made one for each month of the year.  And so that the date would forever be remembered I embroidered the year of the birth of the house on each of my pieces. Oh dang, this was folded up in a drawer and the line you see isn't soil, it is a shadow from the fold.  These 12 designs are the art work of Sarah Sporrer.

Thankfully it has been a very mild winter this year as the last two winters were horrific here in Delaware.  But must admit these warm temps in January and February have my flora rather confused.  Here is one flower which was in full bloom the end of January but was closed up this morning when it was drizzling and overcast outside.  And of course there is a group of dead tree leaves with grass popping thru but for me it is a little too early to go weeding and mulching.

And of course the daffodils are wanting desperately to pop out in bloom; you can see the yellow tops ensconced and protected from the cold until time to unfold.

I'm between hooking projects with two rugs which now need to be bound.  Since binding isn't my favorite thing to do I'm pulling out UFOs.   While I really have no interest in hooking them it is something to do while I decide the next project.  At least it will make a little headway toward a completion (I hope) and can suffer thru to get a few more loops pulled.

    I know what you mean about time flying by. I keep wondering what the he** has happened to my life.
    I've got a few early plants trying to bloom, too. It's colder today, but not nearly what February should be and that's okay by me!
    Hugs :)
