I made a new batch of soap-everyone in the family is enamored of the peppermint oatmeal soap. I will be experimenting with a few additional scents over the next week , though!
I sliced up the four pound loaf 24 hours later-the whole sewing room smells deliciously of peppermint!
When movement is impossible, I draw ideas........they will come about someday!
I collect fabric and pattern and pile them up for a good day...
I sit in my recliner and knit when I can't move around. My hands hurt, but I can push through an hour of knitting at a time! I'm calling it physical therapy!
Bill is trying an experiment of a different sort-there is a disease that palm trees get where their trunk rots away a bit at a time at the base. Bill has decided to try and see if he can inhibit the progress. First he painted the tree trunk a bit below ground level.
And then he painted it with tar to seal the base. We will pull the dirt back and plant some flowers around it when it dries and hope we can save the tree for years and years.
Cassandra brought me a yard pretty! I hung it in the big live oak you see coming up the driveway.
We will see if that pesky wren decides to move in!
The sock is taking shape-I turned the heel and am working up the leg.
I made progress on the quilting frame, too.
In fact, this morning I put the last stitches on and took it off the frame! I will be mailing out the quilt top on Monday!
