Stash Report


You might remember back that a couple of my stash reports have come via Diane.  Sadly Diane has been cleaning out her mother’s fabric after she passed away.  What a job?!  I remember going through my parents things and it’s just a hard job…there’s the sentimental things and the “what were thinking things”…There’s the I wish I could keep that things and the things that bring back a flood of memories.  Going through my parents things was hard and such a process.  Luckily I was blessed with good siblings that were really helpful.

As Diane sorted she thought of me.  I appreciate it lots.  It seems it was time to sort through the pinks…as there are LOTS of pinks.  I love it.

I opened the box when the childcare kiddos were here and they all were in love with the Cat in the Hat fabric…me I was thinking of the pinks and thinking of making Bonnie Hunter’s Zuckerwatte quilt from her String Fling book. (photo courtesy of Quiltville)  The pinks would be perfect.  This quilt has been one I’ve always thought to make….

Thanks so much for thinking of me Diane.  The fabrics are wonderful.  I hope to honor your mom by making something wonderful with the fabrics.

Today I am hooking up with Patchwork Times.

How do I love thee…let me count the ways!!


On Friday night my son Karl surprised me with a visit.  He was on a road trip with a college friend that took him across the border into Wisconsin, over to one of the best burger places ever in Gunder, Iowa, over to Elkader to the bakery and then to my house.

The part of his trip that I was most interested in was the trip to Elkader.  Any child of mine know a drive through Elkader means a trip to the bakery and a trip to the bakery means a gingerbread cookie for their momma.  I ADORE the gingerbread boy cookies that they make at the bakery there.

Some women love jewelry…some trips….some clothes…Not me.  I’m like my Hubby…I like food.

I like truffles from the Bed and Breakfast in Fredericksburg…burgers from the bar in town and gingerbread boys from the bakery in Elkader.

I would love to have their recipe.  The cookies are SO-SO thin-less then 1/4″ thick and they are so chewy.  The amount of spice is perfect too.

Does anyone have a recipe for some like this??  Will you share it with me?  I would really love to make some.

So how do I love my son Karl….let me count the ways….1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ,7 gingerbread boy cookies worth!!  What a sweetie I had one to remind me of him for seven days….yep, you guessed right.  I hid them from Hubby and didn’t share.  I also had to be really careful about eating not to many carbs so I could sneak in a cookie.

Thanks Karl…and seriously readers…does anyone have a recipe???
