I finished up the crochet toys and needed a little break from such small work, so enter: Rupert. Only, he's getting heavy and uncooperative and after all the little work my hands aren't at their best. Moving on to medium work... a child's sweater and skirt and hat. It went together in two nights, not done yet because I still need to add some flowers, but done enough for a picture.
Sadly, one of my sons made off with my camera AGAIN. Pictures will come as soon as it is found.
Edited To Add : I must have been even more tired than I thought when I posted this. I forgot about the soap! I used a recipe that I was told about by a friend on Granola Chicks and it worked beautifully this time. No growing or overflowing anywhere, yay me! The soap I used is white and I had a couple of old gallon milk jugs handy.... so I was forced to label them with a Sharpie. My children read the word SOAP on the side and still ask me why the milk is in the laundry room. Sigh.
