Just this side of Fall

You know how every season gives you a little preview of the next one? Well today was kind of like that around here. Air so clear and cool and the light just dancing on the river. Not quite Autumn yet but almost. I know it’s two months away but I got a little taste of it today. The dyepot did too.Image

Do you think it’s possible to make lye from the ash from a pellet stove? Anybody out there done that? Love to hear about that.

Put up a loaf of rosemary peppermint soap today too. Smells heavenly. I used spirulina to color half of it green and the other half I left alone. I’d love to tell you that I swirled the two colors together but actually it was more like a plopping together, LOL. We’ll see, it may just turn brown. But that’s ok, I like brown. It’s incubating right now, all covered up with a blanket and going through the gel stage. I can’t wait to show it to you tomorrow. Have a lovely evening. xo, Marjie
