Sunday Stash Report: 6/15/14

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?

The Stash

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

The Garden

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.

Sunday Stash Report: 10/6/13

This is the boring kind of stash report:  nothing in and nothing out.  I’ve been pretty sick with a cold and sore throat (I blame my DS who brought it home from college), and I’ve been working on the garden and the house.  I did some paper piecing for Christmas wall hangings, but nothing is finished yet.  Ah, well.

This week:  +0 yards,  -0 yards

YTD:  +123 yards,  -197.50 yards

Net stash used in 2013:  -74.50 yards

I will get to 100 yds!

Since my garden is more interesting than my sewing this week, here is some of the bounty:



And a fall pizza made from all local ingredients:


Hope you are eating well and destashing this week.
