Project 360: Week 25

{168} A few of the zinnias in our garden are blooming.

{169} Reading on top of my quilt and wishing that the weather was cool enough for me to be under my quilt. Summer is not my thing, you guys.

{170} My camera was not cooperating today. Hence the rather blah photo of a pink sunset.

{171} Me and Mom cut our first homemade soap into bars! :) Mine is lavender and hers is orange/cinnamon (it smells like fall). We had a soap-making class on Tuesday with a friend, but had to wait at least 24 hours for it to set before cutting it. Now it has to cure for four weeks before we can use it...

{172} I love yellow. :)

{173} Unusual clouds.

{174} The lovely new Hawthorn pattern came yesterday! I've only splurged on two Colette Patterns so far. They were offering a discount on Hawthorn this past week, and though I really wanted to order it, I couldn't afford it at the moment. But then one of my embroidery pieces sold, so guess what? :)

I apologize for the blog being so quiet this week. It's been kind of a crazy week. I baked zucchini bread and learned how to make soap and helped my parents extract honey (and tried to take photos of the process without getting my camera too sticky :) and made deodorant...yeah. Between all that, I've been doing a tiny bit of spinning and reading library books like a crazy person.

Though I'm starting my babysitting job again next week, I've got several ideas for posts that hopefully I'll have time to put up. :)

Until next time,

  1. Your soap looks great! I've been making and selling soap for a few years now, and I'll probably be doing it forever... it's just so fun. :D

    Ooooh. How did the deodorant turn out? I make my own too (using coconut oil, baking soda, arrowroot powder, and essential oils) and I really love it.


Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to read them! :) I reply to each one, so be sure to check back, especially if you asked a question.
