My friend gave us some odd bits of soapstone so today I thought I'd try carving them. I'm going to make one into a triangular mold for soap and the other one into a 'chop' or hand carved stamp to put on my artwork. At this point I want to make a dragon handle but that may be beyond my skill level.
I'm not sure why I keep picking projects that are hard on my hands. I finally had to give it up for the night and let my hands rest until tomorrow.
Earlier in the day I did some cable knitting as well, which is also hard on my hands. And I cut out a denim plush monster. So I got a lot started today and nothing finished. Story of my life.
