Ah! There I am!

I think I’ve finally made it to the right path, and it’s been a bit of a revelation! Why does it take so long to get to the right starting point? The journey gets exciting for here-on in…

So we’ve busy! International Babywearing Week came and went last week, I had planned to blog every day but in my previously lost state I just couldn’t feel or find the words. However I did find the time to make my long-awaited babywearing bag. I love it, I loved making it and I learnt loads. I used beautiful plum cord I sourced from eBay for the outer, and Alexander Henry ‘Larkspur’ in Brite Multi from Fabric Inspirations for the lining.

On the subject of making, yesterday we made our first ever batch of soap. We used a basic recipe from ‘The Handmade Soap Book’ by Melinda Cross and added Lemongrass essential oil. Now we must cross our fingers and wait for 4 weeks to see if it turns out ok. If you fancy having a go yourself I definitely recommend the book, its really easy to read and full of recipes to try out. I’m hoping to make a different batch every weekend for the next month or so, so hopefully have some good stuff ready for Christmas/Yule.

I’m really excited to have ordered an Earth Pathways Diary 2012, I came across this while browsing a blog and it looks great, just what I have been looking for. Maybe if I have time to get back to my drawing board I will be able to submit some artwork for the 2014 diary! I’m also looking forward to receiving my pouch from Fairysteps…take a look at their truly gorgeous shoes if you have a moment…maybe one day I will be able to justify buying a pair of handmade shoes *sigh*

So, glad to back here, glad to be on my path, glad to be moving forward.
