I am looking forward to tomorrow, I am off to the mountains with my friends Becky and Pat for a mini quilt retreat. We are going to the cabin for some major relaxing and sewing. It is going to be so much fun.

I had a surprise waiting for me at work today, my prize from Becky, the Quilting Book Lady. I love my gift. There is a great T-shirt quilt pattern, a charm pack, that is just absolutely beautiful, a red and white fat quarter (red is my all time favorite color) and not one, but two Elmer's Gold Brick Eggs. Becky and I had talked about how good these were when she came back from visiting her family during spring break. I just ate one and they are as delicious as I remember. Thanks so much Becky.

and never get around to doing everything that I plan on doing. I spent mostof Saturday cleaning house. It definitely needed it, since we were out of town last weekend and will be out of town for Mother's Day. I know I have the afternoons, but by the time I get home and cook dinner I don't feel like cleaning house. I did finish up to applique blocks. My friend Krisite, got me hooked on the Carrie Hall Sample from Homestead Hearth. I have two months completed now. The block to the right is the first month. It was actually a lot
easier than I thought it would be. Kristie is doing the country version, and I decided to do the batik version. The other two blocks were actually the third month, the block for the second month looks really had and I skipped it. I have started working on it. I really like the way Homestead Hearth does their block of the month kits. Everything is clearly labeled and there is always enough fabric.
I also finished the book I was reading, Down Where my Love Lives by Charles Martin. I have read several of his other books and really enjoyed them. This was actually his first book, which I think has been republished. If you are looking for a good read, I would highly recommend it.
