Whales, ahoy!

I have found a new favorite pen, and it is purple!


Saturday night whales and knitting




Unofficial goal for this year is to sketch more.  At least a little bit every day.  Here’s what came out of the first three days of the year 🙂  GOOD STUFF!

Fancy soap



After failing to make cupcakes/muffins with these molds (seriously, it was a disaster), I relegated the silicon molds for SOAP.  I think they turned out beautifully.  I’m not sure where I fall on the love/hate homemade soap spectrum, but I’m glad I tried it at least once.

I learned how to sew zippers last month!





I started with these two styles, but found tutorials on at least two other styles of [more advanced] zippered pouches that I haven’t tried yet.  I now have about a dozen plans for MORE zippered pouches, largely to use up assorted scraps I’ve been holding on to just because they’re pretty.  I’m curious how *fast* I might be able to make these if I tried something more similar to an assembly line….
