Even though there are no colloquia in the summer, and I'm focusing on math right now (like, a lot), I'm still working on some projects - and thinking about others. I realized that I won't be able to make a new dress or skirt before the end of June at the earliest (so if I do make one this summer I won't finish in time to wear it this summer) and that made me kind of sad. But last week I made this quick and easy project. I started with a lavender Dr. Bronner's bar of soap, wrapped it with colored wool, and felted it in a bowl of hot tap water. I put it in my locker at the gym, so now I don't have to use the gross-smelling soap they have in the showers in the locker room anymore. That makes me happy. The felt is sort of like a built-in washcloth, and it keeps the wet soap from making a mess in my locker.
