Happy Father’s Day! I know I have some male readers. Why don’t some of you comment and tell how you spent your day?
Nothing out this week, but nothing in either! I made a top and a back this week from the cowboy fabrics, and have all the blocks ready for a plaid top. I considered quilting the one, just to have a finish, but I am way ahead on the Scrap Basket Quilt Along, and thought I would wait to see if Amanda Jean has any interesting ideas on how to quilt these Rail Fences.
This week: +0 yards, -0 yards
YTD: +64.75 yards, -110.5 yards
Net stash used 2014: -45.75 yards
Yesterday I was thinking about preserving all the cilantro that has loved our cool spring. I can actually keep a little growing most of the year, between the garden and the greenhouse, but somehow not when I really want it. I know it can be frozen or frozen as “pesto”, but that requires blanching (easy, but I only had one armfull; didn’t seem worth heating up the water). Instead, I made Cilantro Salt using these directions.
This was super easy, and reduced it to a small jar for the fridge. I also made a smaller jar using dill. It did seem very salty, but I don’t cook with a lot of salt, so maybe it’s just me. I reduced the amount of salt with the dill, so we’ll see which I like better.
Hope you have a great day. I’m linking up with Sunday Stash Report at Patchwork Times.
