Today's a fabric-dyeing day; hooray! I have two custom pieces to do, both for HAED designs. I'll post pics of the fabric when it's done (if I don't forget, which these days is highly likely, alas). I've been enjoying hand-painting fabrics to match backgrounds...it's different from my usual low-water immersion technique, and a little harder, but it makes me feel all artistic and creative and such.
Over the weekend, I finally got around to playing with my soapy stuff again. I made some oatmeal hand-milled soaps that didn't turn out so great (I think my base soap was a little old - maybe that was the problem?), and also tried my hand at making solid sugar scrubs, which were not only fun to make but also turned out great! At least, I think they did. I've already put them in my eclecticgarden etsy shop -- here are pics:
Vanilla Spice Sugar Scrub Cubes
Lavender Jumbo Sugar Scrub Spheres
As always, I really really wish there were more hours in the day...
Now off to start on the fabric, before Kate wakes up from her nap!
Thank you Andrea and Merry Christmas to all!
