Quiet Days

Quiet days, not doing too much of anything. I had ordered some soap making supplies a while back and they finally arrived, mostly boring stuff, but, I randomly threw a fragrance oil called Galactic Grape in my basket ..oh goodness.. today I’m diffusing it and the house smells like scratch and sniff grape soda, and I have to say it’s one of the best things I’ve done.

Here’s one of my old 2012 soaping blog posts if you’re interested in hearing more about soap :)

PSA: I don’t know a lot about aromatherapy and usually I’m a constant rule breaker, but not so much with plants/herbs, oils and manufactured scents, some things can be irritating to your body, toxic to inhale or ingest, know your ingredients, oils and fragrances usage percent and that they are skin, pet and home safe before using.

Quick makes, looking for solutions to optimize my fabric yardage, always striving for zero waste, but no matter how hard I try, I still end up with little bits leftover. I hadn’t made scrunchies for Lex since she was a kid, so that’s what I did with some of those little bits in the tiny summer studio the other day.

Trying not to read too much into this.

I also made some resin charm dangle thingies, that one says “my heart is flammable when I see your beautiful eyes” I clipped the quote out of a cute notebook I’ve been using for grocery lists. Every page is a different color and has sweet, funny and creepy quotes, that just make me smile. The runner up quote from my cute notebook is below ..yikes!

supply case

I’ve been keeping myself busy sewing the perfect storage/take along/cute stuff case for my cute stuff.

P. S I never go anywhere ♡

I added a split pocket to the front, because everything is better with more pockets, especially impractical tiny cute ones.

I used the smallest size of the Creative Maker Supply Case pattern as the base and customized the insides to everything I wanted.

I went for a knitting-sewing-crocheting-paper & pen case that can also hold candy.

It’s about the size of a paperback book (5½” × 8″ x 1″) and right now it’s my favorite crooked thing ever. ♡

Well almost, I started another scrappy blanket project (no, none of the other scrappy blanket projects have been finished yet) ..but just look at that crochet, I love mitered linen stitch so much!

Pattern: Speckled Squares Blanket by Jackie Hodson of Soul Yarn.

Yarn: Sock yarn leftovers.

Also, just a patch of sky from the other day. ♡
