I started out the day by going to our local farmer's market. It is the time of year where $5 can get you a really nice looking bouquet, the produce is plentiful and perfect and the weather is comfortable. I love this time of year.
As far as making stuff goes, I just finished making some felted soaps. It has been awhile since I made my last batch and I've given them all away. That means, I am without a felted bar for use at our house. As long as I was going to make one, I might as well make a dozen, right!?
Here are the soaps before felting.

It is a wet, sudsy, shoulder fatiguing process.
