New Year, New Bags


Well finally I have come back to my little blog! I never realized how hectic the Christmas season could be when you have become a soap maker. I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be in my kitchen at 11 o'clock at night making soap and filling orders. As grateful as I am for all the wonderful sales, I am secretly a little glad that it has slowed down a bit so I can try to catch up on all the things I missed.

I actually managed to get in a little sewing. I have in my fabric stash lots of fabric that is really wonderful for making bags so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I am quite pleased with how these two pieces have turned out. I think I might add some to my long, also neglected little shop.

I am of course still working on all the other little projects that I have started and hopefully as I manage to get them finished I will post them all here so you can get a look see!

The weather has been not so great here. We have had lots of rain but we did manage to get out for some walks and spotted this wonderful goose sitting in the grass. They are starting to all congregate now down at the animal refuge. It really is an amazing sight to see so many of them altogether...noisy too!. It was bitterly cold and I thought that my ears would freeze off during our walk. It is nice though to get out of the house and breathe that wonderful fresh air after being couped up over Christmas. It helps to walk off all that extra food that we ate too!. Of course I am still making soap. Here is one of our newest creations...Neapolitan Ice Cream that really does smell of Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanilla. I really got quite a craving for some after I finished making it.

Well I think that is all I have for today. Hopefully I will find some interesting things to show and talk about so I won't be gone so long. I really missed my little blog and you a lot.

Have a great day!

Glad to see you back! Good that you were busy with soaps. Sorry, I can't get excited over a Canada goose! We have so many here. They refuse to fly south because there is so much food available for them in farmers' fields around here. If we want to take a walk down by the lake we have to really watche where we step - if you know what I mean! Your bags are lovely! Can't wait to see all you have been working on.

That soap looks good enough to eat. You sure have gotten good at soapmaking.

I love the bags. What a lovely job you did on them. I'm glad to see you getting back at the sewing machine. I've missed seeing your work.
