lye into soap and dyeing to cope

Well I’m back from Fall River and at my day job. I’m here in my familiar but I don’t feel the same. Something is different. I’m different. Not sure why or even how, but I’m willing to just let it all be for now. Before I left I put up two big slabs of my homemade tangerine grapefruit soap. The only thing I like better than making soap is dyeing! Now this is the real thing – not melt and pour. Here it is all covered up. Tonight when I get home, I’m going to unwrap it and slice it into bars. If you want some send your address to my e-mail and I will send it on. – this is a limited time offer!

ps it takes time to cure so don’t expect it for about 3-4 weeks.

Some more work I did at Sue Benner’s class at Pro chem-

This is the big piece -45 x 70 silk crepe.  I’m just delighted. I can’t express how much fun it was to be in a roomful of women who love dyeing as much as i do! We had a blast! Thanks so much Vicki -you kept us going with delicious food and plenty of icey cold tea, hot coffee and H2O!!!

Just imagine vats of soda ash and urea and ludigol and metaphos and an unlimited supply of procion dye concentrates. Vicki and Sue YOU ROCK!
