Aren't we all? It just seems like I can't catch up with everything that needs doing though. In any case, I am on vacation starting tomorrow (that sigh you heard was me) and as usual I have "grand plans" to get everything that needs doing around the house done in a whirlwind 10 days. Yeah, right. At the rate I'm going I'll be lucky to clean out 1 cupboard, much less do the "grand kitchen reorganization/pantry overhaul" I have in mind.

I have been sewing though! Here is my latest project, which I needed to start like I need another dirty diaper (sorry, Mommy-with-an-infant metaphor). I bought some fat quarters of the new Joel Dewberry line, Heirloom. They aren't my usual palette, but something about the citrus colors in this line just drew me in.

I am using the Lemons Squares quilt pattern over on the Fresh Lemons blog (fab-u-lous!). It's very simple and straightforward. I am having fun piecing this as I catch up on my podcasts.

That's pretty much it, other than doing a little more work on the Birdie Stiches BOM. No progress made on my Lighthouse Quilt, it just stares back at me woefully from it's spot on my design wall.

New podcast episode coming at the end of the week, so check back please! I've linked up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday's, and you should really do the same, we quilter's love the inspiration.

Have a great week!



  1. Lookin' good, Tanesha! I love those colors too!

  2. Just finished your last podcast. I love the book reviews! I am reading Major Pettigrew's Last Stand now and am loving it!

    I love the Joel Dewberry colors!

  3. Those blocks look wonderful! The colors are fantastic.

  4. Joel Dewberry makes some awesome stuff, doesn't he? Love that line! Your Lemon Squares quilt is going to be beautiful!

  5. Hi Tanesha! I saw your comment on my blog and thanks for following me! I'm in work at the mo, but I'll be following you back when I get home!

    I'm getting my first quilt ready for batting and backing, but I've just started the first stitches on quilt #2! It's a rainy day quilt from a pattern by blogger Quilter in the Rain, and I'm really liking all the raindrops and umbrellas on my fabrics!!

    Looking forward to listening to some of your podcasts while I get stuck into Quilt 2!
