stash report July 5, 2020 from Making A Lather

Our guild was gifted fabric from an estate. There were several tables, and we could social distance and take what we wanted. I wanted to add variety to my neutral stash, so I came home with this lovely pile of goodies. It didn't look like much in the overall amount of the fabric that I could have taken home, but, there was still a little over 12 yards in my stack.

partial finishes from Making A Lather

 I am now on the injured list with a finger. I was slicing onions, and added a piece of my left ring finger. It will be awhile before it heals. Meanwhile, I learn just how much I use my finger. haha

I have milestone finishes to share today. I finished all the snowmen in my my rug hooking rug. Now, I can begin the center background. The center portion measures 27 x 38. If I do the border as it is drawn, it will be 35 x 42. I use wool strips, and it is getting heavy. I started it ...

stash report June 14, 2020 from Making A Lather

Ordering fabric on the internet is toooo easy. I think these came from green fairy to live at my house. My favorite precut is actually the honey bun. I can cut my own jelly rolls, but I am not fond of cutting 1 1/2 inch strips, so if they do it for me, I am a happy girl. And I really like the mini charms - they are sew cute.

more cleaning from Making A Lather

To the left of my accuquilt, is a little dresser. And, when I cut for a project, I want to cut for the project, and not fold and put away. I have a bad habit of adding the leftover fabric and pieces that need to be dealt with on the table, until it becomes a mountain.


Big pieces make a big difference in cleaning the spot. I found shirt pieces and frolic mystery fabrics and a scrap basket for odds and ends. I found orphan blocks. The white scraps are from cutting triangles for unity mystery quilt. I end up ...

I added this beautiful fat quarter bundle to my stash with a 60% off coupon at bluprint. I thought the colors were rich, and, I always like florals. I don't have a plan for it. I just wanted to pet it.

stash report May 17, 2020 from Making A Lather

I have uncovered another bag of goodwill fabric from before isolation. According to the look of the room I am organizing, I could find many more. It's a blessing that goodwill is closed. Hopefully, I have lost the habit. that's funny. How could I pass these goodies, if given the chance. However, I do like having less fabric to organize.



This time I have finished birch trees quilt

stash report April 26, 2020 from Making A Lather

I have been digging through bags of fabric and scraps trying to organize a little bit. It seems I have a little more time on my hands. I discovered this bag of fabric from a trip to goodwill from a time long gone. I think it must have been just before my hubby's surgery. I don't usually find this much at one time. Someone must have been cleaning, too.



It's time to confess and add it to the numbers. But, I have finished 3 quilts since last report.

There were some sales.... and I didn't resist.



I have a weakness for the moda scrap bags, but, I haven't bought them in a long time. They were half price at green fairy quilts. I have not shopped there until, I bought these goodies.

this and that from Making A Lather

My hubby has back surgery Monday. We are in a daze, and, I haven't really been sewing much. I have finished a few more little things. I have a a few shoofly blocks which is a leader/ ender challenge at Quiltville. I am doing the same size as Bonnie which finishes at 4 1/2 inches. So far, I have not cut any triangles for this, but have used leftover triangles I have in a bucket.


I did quick count, and have 40 blocks.


I had a little snowman next on my snowman rug. He is cuter in person ...

to do shoofly from Making A Lather

My hubby's heart catheritization went well - no blockages. But, it was a long day. There were 2 emergency hearts that were the high priority, so we did a lot of waiting. The prceedure was 15 minutes, but we were there from 10:30 am to 9:30 pm. Now, we wait to see if the back surgery will be rescheduled. My mind has been a little absent lately. I was grateful for the fun little bits of machine time I have had. It does soothe the soul. I have a few new shoofly blocks.


And the pile is growing ...

I am planning to hook the center like a night winter sky.

1. quilt woven  done
2. bind woven   done
3. sashings and corners for frolic   done
4. row x row orange   done

frolic block from Making A Lather

Finally, I can see how a frolic mystery quilt block looks in my fabrics. It is a very involved  block.


I have made a couple of them, trying to get a rhythm going. I am very concerned that I am going to twist or turn something.



These are not done quickly. So, I will be at this awhile.
In other news, I have started rug hooking my snow man rug again.
The snowmen are so cute. I am trying to hook at least one wool string everyday. It's doable.

baskets from Making A Lather

I thought I had too many baskets from a swap years ago, but, it isn't looking very big when I stitch them together. I can make each row another 3 blocks of 4.
I do like the crazy fabrics, and the idea that 3 quilter's had a hand in making them. Matching them, to sew them, seems a bit fiddly, but worth the effort.


I have tried rug hooking again, and it is getting more comfortable with time. I did get another snowman done for my rug. This one is sporting a hip polka dot scarf.


I haven ...

sewing rows from Making A Lather

I have started putting the rows together for the quiltville garden party quilt. It is set on point, so, some rows go together quickly, and, some take forever. But, each row is so fun. I haven't laid it out, I just grab a block that looks good with the ones in the row, and add it. I try to mix my favorites, and keep an eye for the uglies. I started sewing this quilt 6 months ago, and I have made great progress.


I have another snowman finished for my rug. He is a little plain, but, he has ...

new wool from Making A Lather

I still love rug hooking, but haven't been able to sit for very long at a time to actually hook. But, if we can't do, we shop. Yep, I bought more wool.
The gold is a hard color to find and really important for fall projects. I have a thanksgiving rug and a scarecrow that will use it. The cream with lines is for a snowman on my snowman rug. I want every snowman to be different.
 The Left cream color is actually a sparkle, and next to it is a speckle. They will be great for a ...
