My lemon tree had conjoined twins :)

Our lemon tree bears a lot of fruit but this is the first time I have seen conjoined twins.

50 Shades of Gray baby quilt

Well, maybe not 50 Shades of Gray but ..........

When my daughter Diana told me she had painted her nursery gray I was certainly taken aback - how was this Nanny supposed to know that this was the hottest color since the
50 Shades of Gray trilogy had burst onto the scene.
Anyways, I wanted to make a nice quilt for Gemma's room.  I had a freebie small jelly roll
 from an online store, and I used a nice pink from my stash for the cornerstones,
and a quick trip to Walmart found a very dark grey for sashing, and a border with
 two shades of gray - there was also a smattering of gray in the jelly roll.
 The pink certainly softens the quilt !
No, I have not read the book and I am pretty sure it is NOT on my summer reading list!
