This seems to be my week for medical appointments. I had one Tuesday morning and couldn't attend the quilt guild meeting of the Bama Belles. I did drop by for a quick hello and to deliver something to my friend Linda.
I also have an appointment with another doctor on Thursday. Whoever said "This gettin' old ain't for sissies!" certainly was correct. I probably won't get my walk in on Thursday, but I somehow managed to get three miles in today. An audiobook is always helpful to make the walk less boring.
I also managed to make a batch of soap on Monday. I have been making my own soap for years. I love being able to control the contents and the fragrance. That batch of soap was unmolded and cut on Tuesday evening also.
Finally before supper on Tuesday night, I put small pieces of fabric into small dye baths. According to the class I am taking it is best to leave the dye bath to "batch" for 24 hours. Since I am not in a hurry to get the fabric, that is what I plan to do. Thus, on Wednesday night, I will take the fabric out of the dye bath(s) and rinse it out well so I can see my results. However, at the point I am writing this it is difficult to just leave it. The key is knowing that the dye will continue to exhaust up to that point and the rinse-out will be much easier.
Needless to say, I hope the dyeing works well and I have lovely fabrics to show you in the next few days. Right now, I have a Purple spot on my pinkie finger and a bit on my other fingers since I got all excited about the process - but forgot the gloves.
