rsc letters from Making A Lather

My hubby made pickled green tomatoes with some masterful coaching from me. I have always felt bad about the tomatoes at the end of the season, that we don't get harvested. If these are yummy, we may have found the answer. I want to try a green tomato salsa as well. We still have more than enough red tomatoes to eat and maybe still can for the winter.


I have met a bit with my quilting friends, and since I still can't take my machine with back limitations, I used the time to cut some more letters for ...

pink letters from Making A Lather

I made pink letters for my quote quilt.



 And while I was sorting through the pink, I found the remnants of another quilt. I wonder what to do with so many extra pieces. Do I use it as a starting point for another pink quilt, or split the pieces up into their parts.? What would you do?


It's also a new month and the new rainbow color is bright/ light blue. And time to make a new goal for August. I know it is best to keep my goals easier this month as I try to find a new ...

A little rainbow sewing from Making A Lather

I have been feeling better every day, still, not very chatty. Yesterday,  I sat and sewed one seam in my sewing room. I have enjoyed looking through the pink scraps. I made a pink crayon, and 4 patches for woven checkerboard.


I had the chance to cut the alphabet letters that I needed in pink for the quote quilt. Once, I feel like really sewing again, it shouldn't take long to make them.

orange letters from Making A Lather

I just barely finished these in May for the rainbow scrap challenge, just in time to squeak into a blue month. I am usually done and ready for a new color a week ahead, and, then drumming my fingers for the new month. Not May, I have really been surprised it is a new month. I ran out of scraps and had to cut a little bit of yardage. These are the orange letters I need for a quote quilt.




I am still cleaning out bags and buckets. If I don't know where to put them I am taking ...

word games from Making A Lather

Hubby and I had a fun trip to the Greencastle Indiana fiber fair. It was a wonderful splash of color at the festival and along the drive.
My Mother attended Depauw university and my Aunt Betty worked in the offices there. After all these years, I was still able to find my way to where she lived.


Time to play boggle with my alphabet letters for April rainbow scrap challenge.

rainbow letters from Making A Lather

This is the last Saturday of March and the so scrappy and rainbow scrap challenge color of green. I feel like I made a lot of blocks and pieces for green, but, I didn't even go to the actual green bucket. I worked with 2 1/2 in strips, 2 inch strips and 1 1/2 in strips and different sizes of squares. I have more green than I thought. And I even started a whole new quilt here.
I did several letters for the quilts I am planning to use letters.




I finished a few church window blocks ...

yellow letters from Making A Lather

I really like making these letters. It seems quick and then there is the fun of a quick success.
I like that all the letters require pretty much the same size of strip, so I can just cut a 1 1/2 in strip and a 2/12 inch strip and pretty much make everything from there.



Last time I didn't get any takers on the letter game. So I will play it. and, everything plus s on the end.

letters and words from Making A Lather

I have been having fun making letters again. I think they are really easy. I am using the Lori Holt spelling bee book. I have really enjoyed how well it is put together, and the instructions are great.
I especially like that I can cut a few strips in common sizes and then use off of them with each letter. So, most of the sizes are common among the letters. I don't feel like I am digging around for something else, or left with unuseable scraps.


My biggest problem is I am angle challenged. And I think the pictures ...
