Home Blessing Tuesday!

 I am making progress on the Batik blocks.  Aren't they such lively colors??  Just can't help but make you a little happier!!

 I finished the blanket stitching around these applique pieces, and that was relaxing and fun.
And I did a little baking!  Bonnie Hunter Banana Bread...please see below for the recipe!

Home blessing:  vacuum, empty all garbage and recycle, cull magazines, clean mirrors, sweep and mop, clean bathrooms, change all linens and towels, and then do the laundry.   That is my routine...and yours??



Have a wonderful day!!

I don't have a routine because it's just me here. If the dishes pile up a little and I choose to overlook them, no biggy. If there's dust on the wood floor and I don't sweep or vacuum, I'm the only one who sees it. But it does eventually get to me a little and I'll do something but never all at once. There--I confessed! HA

Sounds like a very productive and happy day! I hope you rewarded yourself with one or two slices of that yummy banana bread! Love that first block and yes it sings 'Happy'!

I just love the appliqué piece. I'll bet your house smelled so yummy while baking banana bread!!

Good morning. I'm wishing I could sample that bread as I sit here with my morning coffee during computer time. Good quilting work as evidenced by the photos.

Though CW repros are my #1 choice of fabric, batiks come in a close second. Something about the rich saturation of color and the soothing patterns just grabs me. These blocks are going to make such a pretty quilt!
Your little applique piece is so cute. I think that checkerboard border was a stroke of brilliance.
The banana bread looks delicious.
My cleaning routine is usually on Saturday, getting ready for Sunday and the family dinner we have after church (10-12 people). Then I do a lesser cleaning on Monday--mountains of dishes, sweeping, and wiping up after the family dinner. : )

Not many people could keep up with your routine. Those of us who are retired, take a slightly slower pace. Or at least, I do!

We have 2 more peeps staying with us, so my cleaning schedule is pretty random at the moment!

I was driving to Texarkana on Tuesday, to spend some time with a friend. Much more fun than cleaning. I'll have to clean when I get home in June.

What is the "Connecting corner" way of piecing?
