What a wonderful few vacation days I have had. . . .. Soap making, studio cleaning, knitting, reading . . .and cleaning fleeces.
Last Wednesday I drove up to Allegan, MI to the MI Fiber Festival and took two classes on making soap. While they are not perfect, I learned how to use lye to make soap . . and it was very easy. The key is to be very careful with the lye solution and the raw soap. Here are some pictures:
My plan, of course I always have a plan . .. .is to perfect this soap making and put the products in local stores. Feel free to give me scent/color choices that you would like to see.
Next post, I'll share the studio pictures. . it is coming along.
Of course, I had to shop a bit while I was at Allegan - lucky for me the vendors were not set up yet. .. but I spent enough without the vendors. . .. .
Yup, I NEEDED another hoody AND another TOTE bag - LOL! ! !
