stash report August 1, 2021 from Making A Lather

I ordered a mystery fat quarter bundle from Missouri star quilt company. I liked all the fat quarters that I received. There were a few colors of the top fabric and nothing too wild. 

It was fun to see what was a mystery

Last of the Heat Wave from Quilts....etc.

I hope the weatherman is right – predicted for low to mid 80’s today after quite a long stretch of 95+ we need it!! It would be so nice to sit out on the porch for hours and be comfy.  Even though I have been in the house a lot I just haven’t really been […]

Crocheted Dishcloths from Quarter-Inch Capers

 I like to have a little something to work on in the evenings if I decide to watch TV. The dishcloths are fun and easy, and it doesn't take long to get one finished.


I have made several patterns, but these are my favorite as far as being fast and easy to do. The stitch pattern leaves a little bit of a bumpy texture which works well for dishcloths.

I use the Crafter's Secret Yarn from Hobby Lobby or the Sugar n'Cream from Joann's and a G/6 hook. Chain 22 plus one chain to turn ...

Tomatoes from Quilts....etc.

And I forgot to take photos!  I was busy all day yesterday prepping tomatoes for sauce, cooking, and using the processor to put the tomatoes down into a sauce consistency before putting into containers and didn’t take one photo.    This time instead of canning I put the sauce in pint containers for the freezer.    Pint […]

A Little Quilting and Piecing from Quilts....etc.

Same old stuff here, read, piece, knit, quilt – garden and sometimes cooking and keep repeating day after day.  At times I wonder where the day went but then at the end of the day I look at what I have accomplished and most of the time it is a bit. Yesterday I got some […]

Garden Day from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was so nice outside it barely got above 83 and low humidity – next week will be different so I’m glad I was able to enjoy it.  End of the week and next week – hot, hot close to 100 – I imagine I will get caught up on sewing then. Little acorn squash […]

The Rose Garden from Quilts....etc.

The quilt that is – I really don’t have a rose garden anymore!  It took me two days to make one block for this quilt named The Rose Garden!  Trying to get the routine of this block is messing with me and not fun! it better start to be easier or I can see it […]

Little Pieces from Quilts....etc.

Sometimes I just have to say I hate little bits of fabric and other times I love them!  When you leave a project for awhile and then go back to it and have to reread a pattern and look pieces over repeatedly to remember how to piece them together can lead to a hair pulling […]

Stars from Quilts....etc.

First of all thank you to the two readers Paula and Maria that quickly responded to my inquiry on yarn yesterday – I really do not know why Raverly didn’t pop in my head as a place to look to see if anyone had yarn for sale.  I am a member of Raverly but as […]

Yarn Request and Piecing from Quilts....etc.

First off before I forget about it I have been searching on line without success to find more of the yarn that I am using for the shawl I am knitting.  Back when we had Bluprint/Craftsy I bought up a bunch of yarn before they went out of business for several afghans  – I had […]

Progress on Drunkard’s Path from Quilts....etc.

Yes I made myself get back to work on piecing – I have been a bit lazy the last couple days – no energy and on an antibiotic of all things – I somehow got a case of strep throat – something that it has been so long since I had that I don’t actually […]

Piecing and Knitting from Quilts....etc.

The Drunkard’s Path quilt top is coming closer to an end.  I have to cut out two more rows and then a narrow border to make it the width I want.  Yesterday I got some machine piecing done in between making a hot dog supper with slaw and baked beans ( I use the instant […]

Manitou Springs, Colorado from Quilts....etc.

This is such a pretty area – but of course a heat wave came along and kind of – well I won’t say “ruined” it but it made the days very hot and too hot for me to enjoy being outside all day.  The best thing about this heat is that it is very low […]

A Mess on the Table from Quilts....etc.

Until I get this table cleared off today no work begins on the purple star blocks!  I decided to remodel the waist band on a pair of pants that is just a wee bit too tight for comfort so that stuff plus all the purple fabric is scattered on the table.  Of course it would […]

Purple from Quilts....etc.

Purple is the new color of the month for June – and you know what I found out I don’t have a lot of it!  I tore through the box that holds pink/purple/burgundy and found very little – I looked through my pre-cut square boxes for the 2.5 purple and barely found enough to do […]
