More flowers

Thanks again for everyone who entered the giveaway one way or another. I've gotten addresses from both my winners and will begin prizes as soon as I can decide on what I want to make. Too many ideas, definitely not enough time around here for all of them:)

So we've started thawing out this week which has been absolutely wonderful. I'm definitely happy to be out of single digit temperatures and actually took Joshua out to daycare without my coat on. They say we're going to hit the mid-50's tomorrow which will be heavenly compared to the recent winter weather. Snow is starting to melt and I can actually see grass in one spot of the yard but I know I shouldn't get used to it, it's a long time until real Spring starts and I'm sure it'll get covered up again in a week or two.

I'm settling for my own little celebration of the Spring to come and have continued working on Hydrangea Pillow. I actually finished the bottom two pages and it barely fits on my scanner now but here it is...

Hydrangea Pillow 2/16/11


I love the bright colors in this one! They make the gray days of Indiana winter a little brighter. Off to work on mountains of paperwork and try and finish off our taxes. I tried last week but got derailed when I discovered that our credit card number had been borrowed by somebody in Denmark who had charged a bunch of stuff on it. The bank was good about it, had already frozen it, and promptly cancelled the card and has already sent on a new one. Thank you bank! Hopefully no more fun surprises await me today.

Your pillow is really beginning to look beautiful!! Lucky your bank was so good - scary how that kind of thing happens!

Lovely progress on your pillow. The colours are gorgeous. Glad your bank was able to help.

Great progress. I had that happen to my card when I was staying in the States once... paying my (huge) hotel bill before they actually cancelled the card in the UK was a tricky (but ultimately successful) transaction! Hope you get refunded the money that they spent.
