I’m back! I had a great few days away in Michigan and am now busy unpacking from our trip and getting ready for my sister and her family to arrive in town tomorrow! While I was gone, one of my lovely readers emailed me and told me she found the latest copy of Modern Quilting Magazine, with my Pick Up Sticks pattern, at her Barnes & Noble. You can read more about the quilt and magazine here. On our drive home I stopped at the bookstore and found my own copy.
The issue is the one with “Meet Tula Pink” on the cover (Issue 2). While I was flipping through the magazine looking for my quilt and pattern, I saw this!
Not gonna lie, I was pretty excited to see my blog photo. It was all I could do not to bust out and tell the check out girl about it. She already was looking at me weird for buying a quilting magazine with a giant smile on my face. Ha
So if you are interested in making the quilt or seeing any of the other wonderful patterns in the magazine, go check out your local Barnes & Noble. The magazine is $10 (as it is an international magazine).
I also thought I’d share a few fun pictures from our weekend. We were up at Crystal Lake in northern Michigan. The water is really this clear.
The kids did their first tubing with Mr. Fresh Lemons. You don’t think they liked it do you?
Even my husband’s 91 year old grannie took a jet ski out.

Today I wanted to take a few minutes to share with you some big news from one of my sponsors. Heather over at Lark Cottons has been working hard for several months to move/rework her online shop and now it’s finished! There are a lot of new features that make it really easy to search and buy fabric.
· Fabric is now sold in 1/4 yard increments, with fat quarter cuts available at no additional charge. You have to add the fabric to the cart through the individual product page to get the fat quarter option box.
· There is now a “Wish List” where you can save favorites or see several fabric choices together on the same page.
· Fabric Cut discounts!
- Buy 3 yards or more of a single print and receive 10 cents off per yard.
- After cumulative purchases of 40 yards, receive 10 cents every yard. (in addition to three yard discount)
· Customer Appreciation Reward – receive a coupon code worth $20 for every $200 of accumulated purchases.
Heather has created a 10% off coupon code just for you (code = FRESH) and she is also offering a free fat quarter with purchases of one yard or more – good through the end of the month.
Note that the coupon code needs to get entered on the Shopping Cart page. If you go directly to checkout there’s not a spot for the code.
I hope you will go check out all Heather’s hard work and take advantage of that coupon! I see some new Summerville in her shop!

Today I’m really excited to introduce you to a new online sewing community, and a new sponsor of my blog, Threadbias. Threadbias was started by two quilter-sewists, Amanda and Rebecca, and a web developer, Alex. Joining the site is free and each member (called a “Threader”) can upload projects, add different projects to their favorites, check out discussion forums and user created groups. You also have the option to become a Professional member and list digital patterns for sale in your own customized shop. Basically, it’s a great new place for you to hang out with people like you that have a love of fabric and sewing!
This week Threadbias is celebrating their official launch with lots of fun and giveaways. So be sure to check out their blog to see what’s going on. And don’t forget to sign up here for an account so you can get started with this new online community. Thanks Threadbias, I’m very glad to have you on board here at Fresh Lemons!

Those of you who visit my blog regularly may have noticed last week that I have a new sponsor on the blog. I’m happy to introduce Bloomerie Fabrics!
Bloomerie Fabrics is an online fabric shop owned by Jess and Jo, a couple of fabric fanatics and mother-daughter duo. They love doing just about anything creative – be it sewing, quilting, cooking, gardening, crafting and even coloring! Jess says “We firmly believe every gal should have her own big box of crayons. Guys, too!” I love their energy, don’t you?
I love this new Lizzy House fabric, Hello Pilgram.
This Kitchy Kitchen fabric is pretty cool, especially that stripe.
They also carry notions and trim, including…Baker’s Twine! I love that stuff.
Big thanks to Bloomerie Fabrics for joining the fun here at Fresh Lemons and also thank you to all my readers for your continued support of my sponsors!
