What to do Weekends! Here are plenty of things to do...

Before we start this week's party I'd like to feature a few interesting things from the last two weeks. There is SO MUCH wonderfulness out there and I'm really grateful that all of you have chosen to come and share them at my party!

Jeanette from Creating a Life Now made these sweet little Easter baskets. Darling. I must make some. I'm saving egg cartons as we speak...

Sinea at Ducks 'n a Row (isn't that a cute blog name?) made this wonderful and easy peach cobbler.

Bethany at Sweet Bee Buzzings has a tutorial for making a writing pad cover.

 M. Perfect Living made a wall hanging out of paint samples. This is a quilt pattern. If anyone knows the name of it, let me know and I'll add it to this post. You cut long strips in varying widths but all the same length. Then you sew them together lengthwise. Then you cut them crosswise  in different widths and stagger them. It makes a fabulous pattern for a quilt and that is exactly what M. Perfect Living did with paint strips. And then framed it. This is a whole lot easier than the quilting. I guarantee it. You will want to check it out as she gives a whole tutorial.

The Domesticated Princess shares a really cute girl's skirt. SWEET!

 Amy at Clippie Dips made this darling case for hair clips... Is this cute, or what?

 Now on to the WHAT TO DO WEEKENDS PARTY!!!! YAY!!

I'd love to have everyone follow on Facebook or Twitter or Google+
 and a link back to me would be great and wonderful, too.

Here's an important rule:  HAVE FUN!!
