Back to those loose ends- Heather and I got an early start on soapmaking .
We were both a little unsure of the process but we muddled through ,made a big mess and had a great time. We also decided we were hooked on soapmaking! It was far easier than the research to prepare us and it appears to have come out right!
We'll unmold it tomorrow.It should take several weeks to cure before we know for sure if we did it all right! I'm so glad we tried it- even if I should have been finishing other things !!!!
( Don't worry, girls- the wedding quilt and baby quilt are next in line!)
A good friend and mentor in the arts shared her soapmaking supplies with us and boy did that make it a bit less intimidating!!! Thanks Helen!!! (See Helen's beautiful Lampwork and other art here~ http://helensharvest.com/ )
I wanted to show you a top that I ReMaDe-it was a simple linen top from walmart(I got it at the thrift store for 50 cents. I think it was meant to be a mini dress- but my knees will never see those days again!!!)
I stitched an old crocheted collar to the top and paired it with some bloomers I made last week.
What do you think? I LOVE this style- but it's not for everyone. My daughters keep reminding me of that!!! :)
OK no more starting projects BEFORE vacation!!! I gotta get ready to go see my kids!!!!
