I really can’t get going this January. It’s always a difficult month as I only work in the daylight hours. Also I intend to adopt a slower pace of work this year, I need more time to do other things. I’m taking this ‘slow living’ to heart and really enjoying feeling calm and relaxed.
I’ve been reading, knitting and cooking healthy food, exercising and following my diet plan. I even made a Facebook group called ‘Motivation and Support for Healthy Eating and Exercise’ click here if you want to join us.
This week I decided to make some beeswax wraps.
This was sandwiched between 2 pieces of baking parchment. I decided to do this on an old towel rather than the ironing board.
When you iron you can see the wax melting and coming through the fabric.
It looked patchy so more beeswax was added then more ironing.
I had too much wax this time, it leaked out onto the towel.
Because there was too much wax I layered up one waxed piece with a new piece of fabric and ironed to transfer the wax. I kept doing this until they looked evenly coated.
They were laid flat until the wax set.
I have to say I’m not totally convinced they will work but I’m certainly going to try them out.
Lets try wrapping an apple.
I wouldn’t use them for things like meat but they will have their uses and they will save on some waste.
