recreational sewing from Making A Lather

The more I concentrate on finishes, the more I need recreational sewing in addition. I haven't been in a hurry to finish these 2 projects. They are mostly cut, and all I need to do is sit and sew. They are not part of my goals to finish them yet. Other wedding ring blocks here

fishing from Making A Lather

While I was shopping at Joann fabrics, I ran into an old high school friend. The fact that she was in a fabric store told me why we were friends. haha.  We haven't seen each other in 10 years. She is still the the smart, funny, sweet person she was all those years ago.

Connie, me

I have more fish finished as a leader/ender. I don't know how I want to arrange them in a quilt. Right now, I like this one best.

I decided to sew a few hsts for the wedding ring I am doing ...

triangles from Making A Lather

I have a new infusion of scrap triangles to work with in the future. My Friday group donated these lovely scraps to me and there are many aqua and teals in the bunch. That will have to do this week for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy.


The bag on the right is from my Linda friend's sea swept quilt which is done, which I quilted last week, while I am still piecing mine.

Otherwise, I am making little bits as I get bored with the bigger bits of piecing.

a little here and there from Making A Lather

I have made some progress on some of my projects.

I cut some more hsts for go fish leader/ender challenge from quiltville.

I made another block for the wedding ring or cross and crown blocks. I sorted through what I had cut and made sets. I should be able to grab a set and sew a block when time permits.

I realized I  hadn't looked at the shirt anvil blocks in a while. I sewed some hsts together in sets, so that, when I have the time, I can just sew the blocks.

And I found the one ...

Before Pompeii 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

This series started with some ideas about changing Double Wedding Ring blocks, and moved on until there were no Wedding Rings in sight.

I like the first …

… and love the second.

Just a bit of playing with blocks has improved the centre to my liking.

to do: make a little progress from Making A Lather

While I am working on my focus projects, I do a little piecing as leader/enders. It helps break the monotony of millions of hsts, and adding loooong rows to tops I am trying to finish. I am bouncing between rainbow scrap challenge quilts, grassy creek mystery quilt, and country roads top. country roads isn't moving along as quickly as I had hoped. The mystery quilt takes time. I really like the piecing, so, I don't mind.

It has been a cold dreary week here, and we haven't been out and about. We need to get moving ...

this and that from Making A Lather

I visited with my endocrinologist, last week, and my diabetic numbers are down from the first part of the pandemic, but still need a little more help. We talked about how I haven't been exercising, with the pandemic rising and cold weather. I have been afraid to go to the gym. She said she thought it would be safe enough, since, they have more than likely been following protocols. hmm.. She is a doctor, so today, I will start going to the gym again. Wish me luck.... that I don't get sick, and that, I can do more ...

wedding ring blocks from Making A Lather

It was a difficult week last week, and, I escaped as often as possible to the sewing machine. I worked on piecing  the 16 hsts that are in these blocks. I would sew during the day and then, trim and iron in the evening watching tv. My hubby bought the " leave me alone I am watching hallmark Christmas movies" socks for me last year for Christmas. I am practically living in them. haha.

These are part of a scrap bag I had last year about this time. looking back at the blog post, I see why I am having a ...

stash buster from Making A Lather

So funny.... definitely me

I have a few more stash buster 2020 blocks made. If I have a scrap that I can get a 3 1/2 inch strip and a matching 2 inch strip, I will put it back for this block. Then I cut it until I can't get any more matching sets. I have several repeats this way, but then the scrap is gone. 

I have a bin of 2 1/2 inch hsts and matching 2 1/2 inch squares. I cut the wedding ring blocks the same way. I need 16 hsts and 4 ...

wedding ring block from Making A Lather

Awhile ago, I mentioned that I had a bag of squares that were cut a little off. And, that, I would have to trim, and, cut for something new here. I made sets of the pieces I would need, and, then put them in a drawer. I forgot about them, until, I was checking for something and found them again. I was able to piece one lonely block. I am going to like them.

I couldn't fit another piece of 2 1/2 inch fabric into my temporary drawer. It wouldn't close. It was time to sort the ...
