Soap and what is hanging in my office

I buy the best goat milk soap and cream from Rose of Sharon Acres in Maud, Texas. I seem to have become more sensitive to a lot of products so I was happy to find some lovely natural soaps and creams. I also by her tooth soap - not as ickey as it sounds - I love the stuff and will never go back to regular tooth paste. Monica has a shop on etsy and always has interesting types of soaps. This time I bought Dead Sea Mud soap, Black beauty charcoal soap, Facial Carrot/Honey, and a jar of the unscented goat milk cream. I do not receive anything for this endorcement. I just appreciate a hard working, goat raising family, that makes wonderful natural products. They also take great care in packaging their products so nicely. Check her out on etsy and tell her Patty from Ohio says hello!
I installed a new piece for October in my office. This piece was exhibited at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in 2006 in the Orange You Glad exhibit. This is "For the love of Cheetos". It is made with batiks and was improvsationaly pieced. The black dots are fabric paint. I hand painted the fabric for the back a soft orange and stamped cheeto shapes with a kitchen sponge that I cut to right shape. I picked this to hang for October because of the color. It reminds me of pumpkins and Halloween.

I am off to Charm tomorrow. I am excited to be seeing all the ladies and the customers who return every year for this event. I will try and have pictures to post on Monday. Have a great weekend!
