Where did the weekend go?

I always have such grand plans for the weekends,
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.

Nicely done Brenda! Summer is coming so maybe some extra sewing time is in the cards for you.
