I don't have much of anything to show for this week because this is the table where I do my stitching and as you see it's in use for something very different.
I had been making soap out in the kitchen when The Mister wasn't around but I've got the soap making bug again and didn't want to wait until he went somewhere. I am happy to report that this time I DID remember to add the fragrance before I poured the batter into the molds.
Ta da......two loaves of Oatmeal, Milk and Honey. It's another big batch as I want to get those soap drying shelves filled asap and honestly, I am tired of experimenting with new fragrances which are not only expensive but can be very tricky. When I grab a bar I want something I like and there is only a few fragrances that I really like so I am just sticking with them from now on.
It wasn't a totally stitch-less week. I started this for my mom about 30 years ago and never finished it. I pulled it out after Dad died thinking I would make it sort of a wedding sampler/memorial for them. It's been gathering dust in the downstairs craft room ever since because those sails gave me fits. Over the weekend when I felt like stitching but couldn't get to my usual projects, I went downstairs and ripped out the old sails and started improvising my own instead. I might also make a few other changes along the way to simplify it and speed things up. This is either going to be a train wreck or a revelation-we shall see.
