Soap Making

Sandy and I made soap today. We started this back in March, making several batches. Then due to illness in her family we are just getting back into the soap. We need to get some made for Christmas presents. It will be wonderful for Christmas. We made a double batch of lavender and a single batch of orange. It will take about 2 weeks to cure. Then we are planning to make some cinnamom-orange and plain cinnamon. Very Christmasy.


Trans Siberian Orchestra

Yesterday afternoon DH and I had a treat. We went to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra. It was wild. You have to like rock or you will not enjoy it. The Drummer did a solo that was out of this world. I felt like I had to hold my head on because of the vibrations. Sorry, no pictures. It was dark and lots of laser lite and strobe lites. This was a real treat for DH. When we were walking back to the car, he said Thank-you.

Snowman Class

Last time I told you about the snowman class that we had. Here are some pictures from class. The first one is my friends George Ann and Dottie. George Ann slipped over and took some of my fabric for her snowman. Just wait until I visit her next. HUMMM, what can I take. LOL
Then there I am, concentrating very hard, LOL. I was cutting out pieces of the snowman. Next are 2 pictured of the finished project. No, these are not mine. They belong to the teacher, Judy Heyward. I am doing the one with the green background. Now, I need to get to work or it will not be finished until next Christmas.

Snowman Class

Spent the day at a quilt class with great friends. We got a good start on a Snowman, by Judith Heyward. You can see her work at Look under more classes to see the snowman. We made our back ground and I got as far as getting the Mom and Baby's heads and hats fused together. Once it is fused then appliqueing down will be the next step. This is a real nice wall hanging. Of course a picture will come when I get there. someday. LOL

I usually dont voice my political opinion, but I just have to today. I am soo glad the election is over. I think we should limit campaign time to 3 months before an election. That should be more than enough. I also think the candidates should have to clean up all their signs. What a mess they leave.

So much for that. Off to play with the dog. He has been along all day and needs to run in the yard.
