We have soap... well kind of!
Soap making started today! I can't show you the real soap yet as it is still curing in the mold. I can however show these cute little melt and pour soaps that we made for fun. There are so many lovely molds for sale that it was really hard to choose. I wish I could have them all but they are a little bit pricey so I had to make do with one... for now! It was a very good day to make soap as the weather was really yuck, but I did take a break and ventured out into the garden to photograph these wonderful daffodils. I have been tempted to pick them before the wind and rain destroys them, but they looked so lovely in the garden that I had second thoughts. Isn't this fun fabric, I haven't a clue what to make with it but it shouted out my name while I was in the fabric store so it came home with me! My daughter wanted crochet facial scrubbies so this is what I have been crocheting in front of the TV the last two nights. They are quite easy and fun little things to make and they don't call for a lot of yarn. These were made with an all cotton crochet yarn, soft but scrubby at the same time. Well of course I had to include at least one nature pic in my post today. So once again here is one of our little hummingbirds. This one is sitting atop our Weeping Pussy Willow tree, he's such a lovely little fellow.
Well what a Hodge Podge post this is today, I think there is a bit of something for everyone. Hope you all enjoy it.
