Early Spring!

In case you haven't heard, dear groundhog did NOT see his shadow, meaning an early spring for all! I couldn't be more happy about this, though it's probably bad news for my crafting. The warmer it gets the less I want to cozy up to a fire with my needle and thread, and the more I want to throw barbeque's, have picnics and wear cute summery dresses. (Hmm, perhaps those dresses could use a little embroidery to spice them up!)

But Groundhogs Day isn't just a silly holiday where local town officials trap and terrify a groundhog into making weather predictions he isn't really qualified for. It's also...

An excellent Bill Murray movie!

Wouldn't it be fun to stitch up one of the movie's quotes with a fun little scene? I'm thinking this one might lend itself best to a little needlepoint:

"I was in the Virgin Islands once. I met a girl. We ate lobster, drank piƱa coladas. At sunset, we made love like sea otters. That was a pretty good day. Why couldn't I get that day over, and over, and over..."

I'm seeing a couple sea otters lounged out in beach chairs with some frosty drinks in their flippers, watching the sun set! hah! And now if you'll excuse me, I might have to go and get started on that right now.
