Like a do-over you know?
I made two of these Custom Linen Table Runners last year for the Holidays and I think that for each one that came out great, I lost one. Either the print was blurry or too light. So I am going to over-dye this one and see what happens. There are two leaf prints on each one. The white linen is heavy weight so I will use a bit more color than usual. But which colors should I use? Well let that be a surprise for tomorrow. I’m sure I will be just as surprised as you will! Since it is linen, I will use my procion cold water dyes and use soda ash to fix. -Wish me luck!
Before I left for Portland, I made a huge batch of coffee cinnamon swirl soap and added some orange essential oil. It came out wonderful and I just cut it up today. MMMMM. Coffee grinds in the soap help get the smell of onions and garlic off your hands. I mean personally I like the smell of raw onions and garlic -but I also like the way this soap smells, And I LOVE the way it looks and the way my hands feel after I use it! I started playing around with a stamp while it was still soft. Love the hand image always and forever. Stocking up soap to sell at the Farmers Market in August. this will be my kitchen bar.
