Happy Homemaker in Texas

I hope your having a wonderful weekend
Today I am sharing my Happy Homemaker post
I'll be linking with Sandra on Monday

Happy Homemaker Monday is a fun link party.  Sandra provides 
prompts and I add a few of my own.  Come over and join the party.

The Weather
 There is not a lot better than springtime in Texas.  It is gorgeous.
We might have a little rain tonight and tomorrow but otherwise it 
is gorgeous.

Right Now I  Am
I am thinking that I am happy and blessed to be where I am. I went 
out earlier to buy a few more seeds to plant.  I went to walmart
because they have some seeds for .20.  I couldn't even find a cart
everyone it seems was shopping for plants!  Spring time awe.

Something fun to share
Mystery Suspects for Host a Downloadable DIY St. Patrick's Day Murder Mystery Party Kit: Murder Most Green from Lynda McKenzie of Freelton, Ontario, Canada

I found this fun party option.  It is a website that provides kits 
to do murder mystery parties.  Kind of like the places that do the murder mystery dinners.  Only you do this at home.  
I was goolging St Partricks Day and this sight popped up with it's
St. Patricks Day Murder Mystery.  The kit costs $39.77.  
  • Complete instructions on how to coordinate the investigation of Patrick Flaherty's death.

  • Roles for all suspects that include family backgrounds and recollections of events surrounding the crime.

  • An invitation to the St. Patrick's Day party honoring Patrick Flaherty.

  • Instructions for the undercover detective, and a letter from the Blarney Police Department explaining the investigation.

  • A series of written clues that can be exchanged or revealed at critical moments.

  • Key supporting information such as a map of Flaherty's True Green Plant Nursery, the coroner's report, and the last will and testament of Patrick Flaherty.

  • "The Denouement" that is revealed at the end of the investigation and ties the event together. Remember: MOTIVE, MEANS and OPPORTUNITY will point to the guilty party.
 It is downloadedable.  I thought this was really fun.  I need to gather some friends together and a party.   There are all kinds of options.  Check it out here.

In the garden
No pics today.  Trying to keep this post a little shorter.  And actually things are changing almost daily. 
I am happy to report I have potatoes coming up in all three baskets.
My zinnia's are coming up.  
I went ahead and bought 3 tomato 's last week.  
Lots of flower seeds are planted to take over when the pansy's begin to wither. 

A new linky party
A weekly linky party for crafts, home decor, DIY's and recipes. Join in the fun and link up your blog post. Make sure to visit our blogs every week for a possible feature on all three sites.
This is a new one I found this morning.   Click here.

In the craft basket
I've been cutting scraps into squares.  My bin was overflowing!
I've been working on a new foundation type scrap quilt for the wedding.
Foundation piced project
Here's one I want to try too.  A perfect and fast scrap quilt
This bright, soft quilt is made from a variety of plaid and solid fabrics with solid blue sashing; many of the plaid fabrics are from recycled shirts. The fabrics are 100% cotton, the batting is polyester and the backing is 100% cotton muslin. The blue sashing fabric is homespun,
I love the use of small pieces and that there are no matching seams.   I also loving quilting in straight lines.  This one is for sale on Etsy. Click here.
