I've wanted to make some lavender soap with lavender I bought at the Farmers Market, Though I'll probably never really made soap like my sister, My Joann's was just revamped and now has a cute little soap/lotion/candle/lip balm section, so I bought some pre-made soap in a big block and melted it down, added Lavender Oil and Lavender buds
Although it smells wonderful, it looks to me like there are bugs in it, scary, maybe I should of grinded the buds, I'll try that next time
Here is some more work with the lavender, my other plan for it, lavender pillows with my scraps, I knew I was saving those scraps for something, these are going to live with my yarn in their baskets, to keep pesky things from eating my yarn...
mmm I love the smell of Lavender
Oh and the fun didn't stop there, I bought some wood letters a few weeks ago to try something I saw on "Creative Juice" These are the initials of my newest niece Addison
Each letter separate to see the designs, just scrapbook paper glued on, I haven't decide if I want to put a coat of "Diamond Glaze" on top, or if I'm even sure it will work
Well then I decided to make myself a new Knitting Needle holder, I have lots of fabric reserved for these, to be gifted and possibly sold... we'll see about that,
I need more practice, I do a lot of sewing before thinking here and you can see I forgot to add the ribbon, but no worries, Its still open on the bottom and I can still add it,
I can't seem to find my green thread, which I know I have, so I can't top stitch it yet, but I still love it, I added some interfacing so it feels nice and sturdy
and Last but not least the progress of those lovely Tulips, the knitting part was a breeze its just the finishing thats getting to me,
all I have left to do is sew the petals of the pink and purple flowers and I'm done!!
Oh! btw, I intended on having 6 tulips but I have to ship it tomorrow so shes only getting 3 for now!
