I am not bound for any public place, but for ground of my own where I have planted vines and orchard trees, and in the heat of the day climbed up into the healing shadow of the woods. Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup. ~Wendell Berry

More On Felting
I tried to make a soap felting tutorial for those of you who asked,
but my camera just does not do action and indoor light together.
I shouldn't blame it on my camera.
I just haven't taken the time to
learn how to do it.
So, since my photos turned out like this:
I thought I would do everyone a favor and just
post a You Tube tutorial.
There are many more out there
for your viewing pleasure.
The main tip I have for you is,
the more wool you use, the longer it will take to felt.
The process can take from as little as 3 minutes
to as long as 10-20 minutes.
If you happen to have some soap just lying around
it is a fun and satisfying project.
The wool felting acts as a gentle exfoliant,
lengthens the life of the bar of soap, as
no soap is left stuck to the soap dish,
and there is no need for a wash rag.
H_E_R_E is another good video with a little bit different method of felting.
