I ran out of blue mica making that awful soap for the baby shower. My new supplies of color have shown up with some new glitter and a fragrance sample. You know what that means. I'm going to get the bug for designing a new soap BUT I still have 50 bars to remake for the baby shower first. I am just waiting on fresh oils and butters for try number two. Sigh.
Daddio's Thangle quilt is ready for binding so I tore the stash room up looking for something to make it with. I came up empty handed. I really wanted red and the only red he had in his stash was Christmas material. I just happened to be in Walmart when they were putting up a new display of pre-cuts. Look at that. Red. $2 a yard. You can't beat that.
On the same aisle I found some fallish colored Scrubby. The Mister and I are in love with our bright green ones but they are not doing it for me now. I really was hoping to find something more traditionally fall-like but you get what you get at Walmart. Having said that, it was in the 80's today and pretty miserable out. I wore a sundress and flip flops to Walmart and I was still hot. Fall still hasn't fallen here-yet.
Dare I tell you that I just watched the weather and they’re predicting 38 for our low tonight? I’m still wearing sundresses and flip-flops though purely out of protest that fall is here!ReplyDelete
I’m glad you found some red material to finish the quilt and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you on the next try for the soap. I know you can do it. We’re all pulling for you. Blessings, Betsy
That red fabric is just PERFECT for the backing of Thangle.ReplyDelete
OUR fall has been mostly RAIN! Going to be hot and rainy again today.
Red looks perfect with that beautiful quilt! I haven't tried knitting with Scrubby yet but I'll have to try it; my daughter loves knitted washcloths so I think she'll like something from the Scrubby yarn! I really am sure that the next batch of soap from from the shower will be awesome!ReplyDelete
Ohhh I think a trip to walmart is in my future!ReplyDelete
I spied the new scrubby yarn colors at Walmart, too, but I resisted. I NEED to shop my stash and get it under control.ReplyDelete
I haven't seen that color of the scrubby yet!ReplyDelete
Still too hot here, too!
Hope the next batch of soap is successful and you get the color and fragrance desired! Will you prewash the red fabric before using it? I would be interested in your opinion of the quality of the fabric once you have used it.ReplyDelete
I have learned a lot about Maryland and weather due to your posts. I had NO idea the weather was so hot there!ReplyDelete
I'm sorry you have to redo the 2nd batch of soap.ReplyDelete
I don't know what it is, but some how whenever one needs something for a new project why is it never in our oodles of stash? Drives me nuts. Why is it with all the sock yarn I have, the color my friends want the most are not in it?!?
Hope the weather cools down for you. Best of luck on the next batch of soap. I believe in you!ReplyDelete
