What's Making Me Happy These Days:  

Downton Abbey Season 3...no spoilers I promise, but it's so danged good! Can't wait for everyone here to see it too. I'm also enjoying Call the Midwife, currently running on PBS Sunday nights, and The House of Eliott, another British drama set in the 1920s.

 The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton

Thanks for listening!



  1. So unfair that you are already enjoying Downton Abbey. I can't wait to see Shirley McLaine on it!

  2. I haven't listened to your latest podcast, but I just want to say that Call the Midwife is so interesting. I DVR the program so I can watch it while I am folding clothing later in the week. I am also waiting for the new season of Downton Abby. I have put the DVD series on my Amazon Christmas wish list.

  3. Great podcast. I love to hear about your work and all the fun mom balancing with crafting. I have a 2.9 month old son and share the challenges. I'm working on my banned book project. The darn thing rumpled up like crazy while quilting..probably not helped by said son helping me with the quilting. Blocking now and hoping it will get dry in time to post a pic. Ack.

  4. Tanesha, thank you for yet another wonderful podcast. The life updates are just so fun to hear about. They help me remember those days and darn - it just went so, so fast. I trust you and yours weathered well in Sandy. My best friend's niece is running up and down 10 flights of stairs in Manhattan and I was thinking how lucky she was to be young - if really cold. I guess it is getting chilly there. Anyway - love the owl quilt!!

  5. I can't thank you enough for giving us heads up on "Call the Midwife", both the PBS show and the book. I am SO ENJOYING the show and am rather impatiently waiting for my turn at the book from the library (I'm next!). Having delivered all five of my children at home, the title caught my interest but the program is much better than I ever dreamed.

  6. Lisa Thorpe! Wow! I found an online resource your listeners can click on to get a good idea of what you are talking about with "Brushes". Now I hear the original app is no longer available but there are a couple of others that work just about the same. http://www.quiltingdaily.com/blogs/behind_the_scenes/archive/2012/09/26/there-39-s-another-app-for-that-q-amp-a-with-lisa-thorpe.aspx

  7. You and I really do like the same things. Visting museums and new surroundings? Check. Watching BBC Dramas? Check; you would probably like "Poldark" and "Flambards," if you can get them on Netflix. Kate Morton? Check.

    Did you recommend "Shadow and Bone" or "The Midwife of Hope River?" I know someone recommended them and I wanted to thank them. "The Midwife of Hope River" is like "Call the Midwife" crossed with the older Catherine Marshall book "Christy" and was excellent.

    Hope you're home in time for Quilters' Quest!
