Lotion Bar Experiment


After enjoying using a simple lotion bar created
by a friend for almost over a year now, 
I researched the Internet for simple recipes,
and my experiment of combining
beeswax, coconut oil and flax seed oil
and the small remaining ball of my old one
worked well. 
Lotion Bars are great after
dish washing and/or rough feet too.

Hand Appliquing Bull's Eye Blocks

Before embarking on my  first Cruise adventure,
I quickly cut out 8 inch square,
6,4 & 2 inch circles in various
red, blue and green batiks
to have ready to hand sew while at sea.
Of course, I didn't complete as much as I thought,
but it's great to have ready a portable hand project
started again, considering I'm almost finished
with my current one.
