So this happened

Yeah. It's my daughter's latest craft project. It's alpaca wool felted around a lump of soap. I think it looks more like something the cat coughed up, but her little hands made it, so... yeah. It smells the way you'd expect a wet alpaca to smell. The idea is that the soap gets embedded in the felt and comes through as you use it. So, of course Molly wants to take a bath with it now. Lovely.

And here's a glimpse of my latest contribution to the row round robin I'm in.It's 3:22 a.m. and I can't sleep. I'm really happy because I got off a video call a while ago with a close friend who I haven't seen in a long time. He lives in Australia now, which makes timing a bit tricky, but we slipped into conversation as if it had been only ten days since we last talked instead of nearly ten years. The internet is a wonderful thing. Now I want to send him something I've made.


  1. That's so funny. Will the wool come off in the tub? It looks like a decapitated....something. lol!!

  2. Oh my goodness. You may have a true inventor on your hands!

  3. This actually looks much more sane than some of the ideas they have had for cleaning up the oil spill in the Gulf!

  4. oh your daughter is wonderfully talented. hope it works for her:)
