Feel better LP.

Thanks dibbles!
The back is no biggie. I've slipped discs at least once a yr for almost 20 yrs. I'm used to it. It was having to get back on prednisone for 3 months that irked me. I have rheumatoid arthritis that, praise high heaven, is in remission. Then I got temporal arteritis back late May and was back on pred for 3 months. Errr, I HATE being on it! Anywho, I'm fine now. As long as the RA stays away, I'm smooth sailin'!

oh No! I hope you get too feeling better. Back pain is awful!!!

If newbie was going to do September, and you were going to do October. Mabye newbie can do October, and you November. That way you have time to recuperate, and more time to come up with ideas.

Just a suggestion!

Thx, I think it finally worked back in. It slipped last Friday and it always is about a week to go back. Sure enough yesterday was back appx 80%, and so far (fingers crossed), I feel pretty darn good this morning. I filmed an intro yesterday and am ready for a couple soaps for the challenge. I'm good to go
Thx everyone!

LP ~ Sorry for your troubles but nice to see you back! I hope soaping helps your health in some small way.

No pressure to kick something out early, it was just an ask in case it could work. I get how short the days really are.

OK. I'm not going to give it away, but a hint for October. Think simple, elegant, and use a delicate hand. I also trolled pinterest yesterday to give ample examples of this challenge. It should be easy enough for beginners and fun for vets of soaping (hopefully). My main problem was trying to set rules/boundaries. Hopefully the pin examples are adequate in that.
