stash report March 17, 2019 from Making A Lather

My Christmas cactus is blooming. With the weird winter we have had, I am not surprised it is confused. What does surprise me is that the blooms look almost pink, and they are supposed to be red. hmmm


Craftsy sent a coupon to me for an additional amount off, and I found 2 fat quarter bundles I thought were great.

I had a flannel day at goodwill. Most of these pieces are at least 5 yards. They will make great backs. I am even wondering if the bottom piece would work as the back for my double wedding ring quilt. They are washed and dried and folded.

Stages of grief of a fabricholic

1. denial - sure I have a lot of fabric, but not that much and I need everything for projects I plan on doing. I just need a better organization system and spend a little more time focused on my projects. And I will just focus on finishing and then everything will be sunshine and happy sewing.

2.  anger - I can't find anything, it's a mess. Why can't I keep up and finish everything. It's not fair that quilter's keep enticing me with new inspiration. finishing takes longer than cutting ...

My hubby brought this flower to me yesterday, in the dead of winter. What a welcome surprise. He had brought one of our planters in from the deck and has it wintering over in our basement under a grow light. The marigold has made it so far.


It was time to do something with this stack of fabric from goodwill. I really like the 2 solid pieces on the left. They are grunge fabrics from before there were grunge fabrics. I am guessing the 80s.
I decided I would weigh it to get the yardage, and there was 5 pounds ...

I added this fabric this week. Read about my quilter's miracle here.


I also felt the need to add some neutral reproduction fabrics to my stash for the circa 1880 swap for which I am participating. They are in short supply in my limited reproduction stash. The cheddar/ mustard jumped in the cart.


I am still without a new hand stitching project, so I plan to dig out the hexagon quilt and figure what I need to do to start evening the edges.

Stash report May 20, 2018 from Making A Lather

I bought one jelly roll and 3 charm packs at Tuesday morning in Indianapolis. I am not sure what went wrong, but, after a long time of not buying any fabric ( other than thrift stores), I bought a lot. I immediately had buyers remorse. I checked out of the store with 5 jelly rolls and 2 layer cakes and 3 charm packs. Considering we are unemployed and or retired, I could not afford that kind of shopping extravagance. And I don't know what I was thinking. The same arguments in my head were still there -you have to start ...
