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

stash report July 25, 2021 from Making A Lather

New batik charm squares arrived this week. I like the colors. I bought them "just because". We had a shop hop this week, and my daughter was here to go with me. There were 30 shops in booths in a big convention center. We both showed some restraint and came home with the same fabric too. That is always fun. Fabric prices had indeed risen.

I bought the template to make this fabric ring. It wasn't what I thought it was. But it works like the twister templates. First you sew the charm squares together and then cut ...

Look what I found at goodwill this week. I found a bag of scraps - be still my heart. I liked the colors and it looked like the pieces were decent size. I am taking stuff to goodwill in the BIG cleanup of summer 2021, but, then, I have to look inside......

happy in a bag

There was 3 yards and scraps and all very nice. I paid 3.50 for the bag.

sheep pillow from Making A Lather

This is  an old rug hooking/ needle punch project that I have not finished. I took it with me to rug hooking along with my featherweight, and sewed it into a pillow. I used a pillow form from Goodwill for the stuffing. Besides the cute sheep, I liked the project  since it was hooked on a wool fabric instead of a typical rug hooking backing. Before I start a new rug project, I am trying to empty the unfinished drawer. I still have 2 or 3 bigger projects in the drawer to finish.



I like that is a two sided ...

Happy Father's Day! I married a good one. He was right in the trenches with me. He changed diapers, cleaned up yukky things, went to all the events, held them, carried them, taught them. He was right there with me. He was better with them in the night - I was a zombie. And so far, he is good with all my fabric.

And I have some new treasures. They were on sale.

Green fairy had mystery honey buns and I love honey buns.

sheep bag from Making A Lather

My finishes for this week, are my attempt to finish rug hooking ufos, which have accumulated just like quilt ufos. This is one of the first rug hooking projects I made in 2010. I didn't even know how to finish anything yet, so I didn't finish it. It has been sitting waiting patiently. I decided to make a zippered bag. When I sewed the bag pieces to the hooked piece, I could only get so close, so I needed to hook another row.


I made the bag at a retreat using the tutorial at noodlehead

stash report June 13, 2021 from Making A Lather

I attended a sleep in your own bed retreat this weekend and there was a free table. I haven't had a chance to count what came home. ( I was really really tired). Unfortunately, the table was on the way to the restroom, and, right next to the food. I remember, I found purple, and florals which I was looking to add to my stash. My table buddy was a good girl for her stash, but, kept bringing me fabric she thought I needed. haha

I can always use neutrals

June one monthly goal from Making A Lather

 I didn't finish my goal for last month. I had hoped to get aunt Elizas star to the top stage. I did get half of the top together. I think I will still get the top finished before I put it away again.

For June, I want to switch the ufo project to a purple ufo for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I want to finish the bonnie Hunter quilt zuckerwatte from her book string fling. I made the top during the pink month. And I will use this month to quilt it and get it bound ...

I indulged in 2 moda scrap bags. I know they are not really economical, or practical, but, I love the mystery. Some bags are a disappointment, but, these were great. The strips were mostly 3 inches wide, and, many were coordinating.

flower rug finish from Making A Lather

I finished a class project for rug hooking. We started it last Spring after my hubby had back surgery. I didn't start it again until this year. It is a small rug that I will use as a wall hanging - Probably  only 16 x 16 inches. Part of the class was the pattern, wool, and, then, instruction from the teacher on shading. I think we had 9 different wools for shading. Lori Cravens was the teacher. I don't like the binding part of finishing, so, at least it was small, and, I could do it at the guild ...

to do: draw more circles from Making A Lather

This seems to be a project for in between finishing a rug and what rug to do next decisions. I generally just do what comes to mind in each of the circles, but, this time, I thought it would be fun to use up leftovers strips from the project I am working currently. I might even add miniatures of the bigger pictures. I think in these circles, I will do Mr. Scarecrow rug. 


Here is where I left it in 2019. Just like in quilting I have strings and crumbs, in rug hooking, I have bags of strips leftover. If ...

I bought these fat quarter  bundles in preparation for a new quilt I am making as part of our Friday quilt group. At least Linda and I are making a quilt called sea swept., others may join as we go along. I have chosen to make it with batiks in the colors on the pattern. I pulled some fabric from my small, but, rarely used, stash of batiks. I was worried I didn't have enough.

 Rather than add fabric this week, I cut fabric strips. I weighed them at 3 lbs 6 oz all from scraps. This is equal to 9 1/2 yards of fabric or 100.00 dollars  -  or 3 jelly rolls = 120.00 dollars - or 3 layer cakes = 120.00 - or 6 honey buns = 150.00 dollars - or 14 charm packs = 140.00 dollars. Well worth the time to make use of these fabric scraps.

almost finishes from Making A Lather

With my mojo gone, I have just been tinkering with this and that. I have some almost finishes.

asterix s for the full stop quilt that Angela is doing. I still need to sash and join.


A rug hooking flower mat. I have the flower finished and I am working on the background.


I started making a journal from scraps of cardboard. Now, I need to cover it with something pretty. I think I need to add some gratitudey things as well.


I have snoopy wiggle time quilted, I just need to bind it.

stash report April 25, 2021 from Making A Lather

I found two pieces of fabric at Goodwill this week. And, they look good together. I am always wondering what goes on in the mind of the person sending their fabric to goodwill. Do they not like it, was it leftover from a project, are they moving, quitting, or just downsizing? I try to keep my expected cost of goodwill fabric to 1.00 per yard. Their fabric prices are getting ridiculous for second hand fabric. I can only buy on Senior discount day. These 2 pieces were closer to 1.50 per yard, but, I liked them enough to ...
