I try to periodically promote artists and crafters local to St. Louis. Today, I want to brag on one of my friends & customers, Kat. Kat, aka Katatomic, is a local artist who specializes in super cute animals & adorable accessories. You can find her on Facebook and, if I poke her enough, I hope she will update her Etsy shop with little tiny felt sheeps made with real sheep locks.

|Kat made this felted pumpkin spice soap for Scott. We're a fan of the felted soaps around here.|
|Katatomic even has her own Dyeabolical colorway. She asked me several times to try these colors together and I resisted her each time. Why did I resist her for so long? This is hands down my favorite colorway ever.|
I am working on a new soap design. There is a lot of work left to do, but I will have several bars ready for Green With Indie in....oh crap, 3 weeks. Oh crap, oh crap. Um, I'm going to say right now that I stabbed myself in the leg a week ago and that somewhat has slowed down production. While my booth will have yarn, fiber & soap in it, it might not be quite as packed to the gills as usual. And you already know updates have been light lately. Wait, where was I? Oh yes, a new soap design. I kind of love chevrons. I will have several bars ready in about 3 weeks. Are there any color requests?
On Monday, I mentioned wanting to play around and find a new way to photograph soap so it really showed the soap off well. Here is the so-so picture I started with:
the rest of my stock.
