Day 53: Soap Reveal and Wool Pouches Continued

Here is a recent photo of my Robert and me at a gathering for a friend's birthday.  Sometimes happiness just surprises me.  We look so happy here (not that we aren't usually....I just am not LOOKING at us since we are us if that makes any sense at all)!  It made me smile, so I just had to share!

 Here is the day's produce in the line of wool pouch creations.  I knitted (poorly, but knitted all the same) the little section that then became a part of the closure decoration.  I think I am addicted to the ease of snaps....if only they were more interesting!  Maybe I need to work on embellishing my snaps!

Here is a relatively fresh batch of soap that I used my "N" lyno stamp to decorate the surface.  I think this batch was made with lemon grass essential oils and egg shells finely ground for exfoliation.  I took a veggie peeler to all of the edges today just to give a more refined look, and I think the finished look is worth the three seconds it took me to do the entire batch.  This one should be shower ready by mid-March.

Tomorrow it looks like we will all be home again with fevers etc.  Felix might escape but I will make the final ruling tonight when I take his un-medicated temp before bedtime.  Sylvia is home for sure.....
