Happy Homemaker in Texas

Welcome back to my mostly weekly post.
I'm joining Sandra for her Monday Party
Sandra provides the prompts.  I add a few of my own.
This morning I was collecting photo's to use for this post and realized I had not made a new photo for HHM for March. 
 I noticed the welcome sign in my crochet photo and thought it 
that it was just right . . . 

The weather
Mostly rainy last week.  Cold a few days.  Warmer a few others.
I actually sat in my patio room the other day it was nice and warm.
It was late in the afternoon and I took a pick of the shadows on a pillow . . . 
Time to put this Hunt Scene pillow away & bring out the Spring.

Outside my window
Bright sunshine.  Actually it's too bright.  I mentioned awhile back that I have moved the computer.  The window it is by gets alot of afternoon sun.  So much I can not see the screen. 
But I am happy we have sunshine.

On the breakfast plate
Nothing yet.  Can't decide between a bagel or a pancake. 

I am reading now
I'm liking it.  Can't say it's great too early to tell.  There's some mystery and some laughs.  A little romance I think.  I like the main character Cam and his ex wife.  The are thrown together to investigate when his mom Darcy ends up being a suspect.  I'll be reviewing soon for The Great Escapes Tour.

On the reading pile

In the garden
Mostly plans.  And thoughts.  I have had some big plans but life has gotten in the way.  Not sure how much gardening will get done.  I have seeds waiting to plant. 

In the craft basket 
I am in 2 Crochet Along Groups.  This one is with 
Unraveled Mitten.  Each month we get to new blocks.  I started with this Sherbet Orange because it didn't fit/match into the original color scheme for the other blocks like I thought when I bought it.  This week I found this multi-color and I love it.  This one will go out in my patio room when it's complete. 

I have been looking for a few more blues for the house quilt and found this collection at Hobby Lobby.
I have a few house made.  I love the polka dots.  The trees are all made with scraps.  I am buying some fabric for the houses. 

The Fabulous Party Features
Each week I choose two posts that 'Catch My Eye'.  You can join the party here every Sunday.  Link up your posts maybe one will 
'Catch My Eye'!

A simple and clever way to upcycle children's wooden building blocks. A little paint, a simple tutorial and a few embellishments is all you need for this fun diy project.
This one was interesting.  I like the finished product but I am a little undecided if I like the re-purpose.  You decide.
