It's a new week again, so let me show you what I've been up to these last few days. Last week I made some new pouches, including this sweet fantail one that I've listed in my Felt shop. The others are for Kraftbomb at the end of the month.I've been knitting. This is a face cloth knitted from chenille, and is soft and fluffy. A gift for a dear friend.
Finally, we've been studying volcanoes. Daniel is very interested in them and is asking so many questions; if I'd known I was going to have such scientific little boys, I might have chosen to study Biology and Geography in high school. But I didn't, and so we got a heap of books from the library and then made our own volcano. We made the mountain from plaster of paris, which the boys loved painting, and then we added the lava. No, it's not blood and dishwashing liquid. We just added a bit of food colouring (ok, a lot) to the vinegar and baking soda. I read somewhere dishwashing liquid is in fact also a good idea, but it turns out the lava was bubbling quite happily without it.
