Blocks and Logs...

 A tree fell in our bamboo grove.  Bill had to cut the dead ones down and then get to the tree.
 Our neighbor came with his grabber attachment that reached in and could 'grab' a bunch of branches at a time;  it was a great time saver!
 It shaped the bamboo area up in good order!  We were afraid the whole grove was dying because of the drought last year but it is budding like mad and looking  like a full recovery is happening!
 I made a log of lavender soap!  It smells so good in here!  I will cut it up tomorrow!
 I am plugging away at the yellow Ohio Stars-only 5 more to go!
 I am halfway done with the lace knit edge for the latest shawl!  I love doing the 20 row repeat, I can do several each evening.

    I'll bet that soap smells wonderful!

  2. That's so funny, I was going to say the same thing as Dee about the soap, lol! It looks delicious :-D

  3. I ordered my lye today. You inspired me ages ago to make soap and now I'm ready to take the big step into cold process land.
    I can't believe how far you got with the lace. I'm in awe.

  4. My kids will be so relieved that the bamboo grove is healthy!

    Here we come...

  5. Good to hear the bamboo survived the drought. There really is no stopping you two!

I couldn't wait to sample a bit of the newly carded wool by using my favorite drop spindle.  Since it had been a few years since I used ...
