Hydrangeas in the rain

Sorry to ignore you for so long but it's just been plain busy around here. Between work and the lovely Spring weather we were enjoying (note the past tense, it's been replaced by cold and rain for the next few days anyway) the time just flew and here we are almost done with March. The highlights...

-My cold made its way around the entire family and is finally gone
-Joshua had his appt with the ENT and will be getting tubes in his ears next Thursday
-Spring is here (the next few days excluded) and Joshua loves outside!
-The adoption agency emailed a reminder that Joshua's 1 year post placement report will be due soon. Where did that time go?!
-Working on the giveaway prizes but I've hit a snag in the form of a floss shortage so I'm waiting on a shipment for now

Oh, and I've been stitching away on the Hydrangea Pillow and have made quite a bit of progress for me...

Hydrangea Pillow 3/22/11

Had to take a picture with the digital camera this time since my progress is in two separate corners and my scanner's not quite that wide. I just love the colors in this. They make me think happy and warm thoughts even though it's not very warm here right now. Probably doesn't hurt that I have memories of our Russian adventure tied to this piece. I don't know how I missed these pillows for so long but I just can't seem to get enough of them right now. I'd really like to do the newest seasonal series for my Mom as my next set of new projects. And of course there are about a dozen I'd like to stitch but have no idea what I'd do with too.

That's about it for now. Off to stitch awhile longer and get ready for the great cleaning that's going to take place in my house tomorrow. This is my one day off until Joshua's surgery so I'm going to take him to daycare and really let the house have it tomorrow since both Erich and I have been working crazy hours and will continue to do so for awhile to cover for sick coworkers and make some extra money too. Never hurts to have a little extra put away for those things that come up like a car repair or maybe some adoption expenses or a broken sink. You just never know what might happen.
