Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin....

So, once again, the office will be closed from Thursday, May 21 - Memorial Day. We will reopen as usual on Tuesday morning.

You all know why. Memorial Day is bittersweet for me. I love the camping, bonfires, swimming and boating and family, but what's more important is the "Reason for the Season" as they say. I have many, many military members in my family, and while none that I know of have died in the line of duty, it's still very important to me to remember the holiday for what it was intended to be.

This week, on our sale page, we are featuring an assortment of books and patterns from Timeless Treasures and Traditional Primitives. Lots more clearance items too! Additionally, Kaye's favorite, Everyone Can Quilt is marked down to 1/2 price! Check them all out on our Sale page, HERE

Remember.... orders over $50.00 are fr** shipping (US only, sorry)

Go HERE for all of our sale, hurt and clearance items.

Lots of cool new stuff on our New Page too!

Cheryl from Sew Can Do Asks: Are You A Fabric Hoarder Too?

Remember how I said I'd be keeping it real over here? Showing the not-so-perfect side of crafting? Well, settle in because today's all about the less than glamorous situation over here: Fabric Hoarding.

Every so often (ok, every time I go in my basement) I look at my fabric stash overflow and say that I'm not going to buy any more fabric until I thin things out. Until I make a bunch of stuff with what I have. Heaven knows there's enough of it accumulated over the past few years. You may have seen this pic from my craft room tour with a neatly stacked, reasonable amount of fabric. Don't let it fool you - it's just the tip of the iceberg......

Homesteading Corner....

Yes, this really is my garden, at least the strawberries and asparagus part of it.

Strawberries by the Pool.....

Back in 2009 I had the brilliant idea of making a rock wall ledge around my pool to house my strawberries. You can read all about that project here:

Did it.

Looked awesome.

Worked great for a few years.

But the strawberries, as it turned out, weren't really happy there, so, they got moved again. This time to a sunny spot in my garden, right up next to and cozy with my asparagus. Mulched with hay and ready to produce. Funny though, when I first planted them, there were strawberries everywhere. Gazillions of them. When I transplanted them into one row, there weren't that many. Hmmmm... seems like a few wandered off....

These are June bearing, all of them, because I like to make jam, and have them all ready at the same time. The other kind, everbearing, bear the fruit all summer long and you never really get enough at one time to do anything but fight the birds for them.

In other news..... my hubby is a genius! Normally the farm is my domain. He keeps my tractors running, but until I wave the white flag, he's content to stay well out of my way.

For quite awhile I've been needing to get my duck pen built. Well I went at it this past weekend but was getting nowhere fast. I mean, come on, how hard is it to string a fence? (it's not!) But, for some reason it wasn't working for me. So he came over and said, "Let's use the old round bale feeder. We can wrap fencing around it, put netting on top and you'll be good to go". Well, duh! Ok then. An hour later I had a very nice duck pen, complete with little pool and an old pet carrier for a nest. They are very, very happy little ducks.

Reader's Show and Tell....

I am a fairly new quilter and this is the first finished quilt that I have made. I began it a quilt camp in February 2009 for my husband (So he would like me going again this year) and finished it on Christmas morning. I used the pattern Diamonds of Yellowstone and View and Do Diamond Shape.

Article In Our FaceBook Group

We featured an article in our Quilting The Kaye Wood Way Facebook Group about Fabric Hoarding/Fabric Stash and a lot of you weighed in. Here are some of your thoughts!
Ruth says: I bought several shelving units from a local discount store. Each is 36" wide and 6' tall. I have placed my folded fabrics so that the selvages do not show, and they are all color-coded. One unit is used for "sets" of fabrics that have already been grouped for quilt projects. I can tell at a glance what I have. I am clearly a hoarder and it bothered me for quite awhile until I talked to my daughter and made it clear that when I am no longer able to quilt that the fabric she doesn't want should be donated to local quilting groups who make quilts and other items for local hospitals, etc. Now I don't feel bad about it and consider myself a collector. I had it all color coded in book cases but have had to move it into the basement so now it is still color coded but in clear plastic tubs. There are about 40 of them!
Sue says: Yes, my name is Sue, and I hoard fabric. And, when I do decide to start a new project I must run out and find the perfect fabric!
