I managed to finish the front of my crochet pillow this week. Now I am on the hunt for a recycled sweater, hopefully in a yellow or green or even a white color. I plan on making the back from the sweater. Maybe I will be lucky and find a cashmere one at the thrift store. I have been pretty successful before at finding them. Then all I have to do is stitch the two together.
Of course I am still soap making. I cut these three yesterday. From left to right, Oatmeal Milk and Honey. Wonderful for dry itchy winter skin. White Lavender and Violet and Geranium and Bergamot.
Ever since I have started using handmade soap I no longer care for store bought soap. It is loaded with drying detergent. Sure it gives lots of bubbles but handmade soap is a lot kinder to your skin.
Well the new season of the TV show Lost started a couple of days ago. I have been waiting forever for it to start. All I can say is I am well and truly lost. I am hoping that bits and pieces will start to fall into place as the weeks follow and I will have that, "Oh now I get it" moment. But for now I am left scratching my head and wondering what it all means. Am I the only one that is lost?
Looks like another OK weekend on the weather front. I am pretty sure a walk is in the works. I have to say that we are having a pretty good winter here. Daytime temps are usually in the low fifties. Compared to the rest of the country I think we are quite lucky.
See you soon!
