I am holding my hands up and admitting that I may have taken on a little too much recently. I've had 3 commissions, two of which are done. I've had to make 3 class samples, again 2 are done. I also finished a magazine commission, have nearly finished a secret quilt that I will be sharing soon, I'm working on a couple of other secret projects for people and I'm totally behind on my two Block of the Month makes. Nicky will probably be seeing her bee block at the very end of the month because I'm under pressure to get things done ASAP - not that hers isn't important but I need to prioritise the paid stuff.

My Arizona Japanese + x quilt - I can't wait to quilt it!

*whinge, whinge* Ok I'm not complaining about being busy but I need to make a note not to take on so much when I have 3 kids at home over the holidays! I've had a lot of late nights (well I generally do anyway but now I'm panicking trying to decide what to sew first and I find deadlines exhausting!). Despite my little moan I am so pleased with what I have made and thank goodness I have sewing mojo - sometimes that leaves me when I have to get things done but right now I'm working that mojo hard!

Now here's some sponsor discounts and link to a vintage sheet giveaway...

At the Fat Quarter Shop you can get 20% off all Riley Blake Fabrics, use the code RILEY at checkout - valid until 14th August. I fancy this Shuffle Bundle and some wide yardage!

Pink Castle Fabrics are having a Giant bundle sale and you can get 30% off all precuts and bundles using code BUNDLE30 at checkout - valid until Sunday 17th August.

Also take a look at their Limited Edition Liberty Lawn Stash Box, I'm a huge fan of Liberty prints and this is a great way to get hold of 45 fat sixteenths, if they pre-sell 120 boxes then they will upgrade that to 50! You can read more about Liberty Tana Lawn on their blog. The stash boxes are the perfect way to add to or start your Liberty collection.
