Afternoon delight

I originally thought of these "scarf/hoodies" about two years ago when I was brain-storming for St.L Fashion Week, but I never had the right scarf to do it with. I love hoodies - they are warm, easy, and go with I'd say a good 80% of my regular attire.
(my thought process in black and white)
*I like hoodies / sometimes it's too warm indoors for a hoodie / but I like them / hmm... / you wear scarves inside / why do I like the hoodie / the hood of course / but I don't wear the hood unless it's raining / it's not raining indoors (thoughts digressing.... ok, back on track) / take the hood which I like add it to the scarf which you wear inside / presto*

Smells of Home - Bread and Laundry

It's now been raining for the past 2 days and the forcast is for it to continue...
What to do......
Make stuff!
I know it's not a sewing or crafting project - but I wanted to fill you in on what I've been doing for the past couple of days. At the moment I am working on some really cute crochet items, but they aren't finished - or I would totally post them.
What I do have finished is bread and laundry soap.
My mom gave me her bread maker - which I LOVE! It's just so easy, and by all means - I am not Paula or for that matter - Paula on an off day - I am a crafter...
Cooking comes second - it actually kind of makes me nervous to cook. Getting everything to be timed right and not burned - Not my thing. However, the bread maker does it all for you. :) How much easier could that be?

*A peek into my present moment*
{I am listening to "Don't stop till you get Enough" by Michael Jackson / sitting in the kitchen - online of course / and waiting for my dough to be done... all while the L'bug is sleeping.}
Laundry Soap

A friend of mine told me about making your own laundry soap - I would highly recommend anyone trying it! It's not hard. It's cheap. And part of me just wanted to do it to prove to myself that I could.
