Hexies from Canada

These are from my swap partner, Coralie Wallace in British Columbia Canada. They are perfect for my hexie quilt. I love them! I sent my first hexies in the inchy swap to London.

My hexie addiction

I have fallen in love with making 1 inch hexagons. I hand stitch them with needle and thread, and when I am done, I have something beautiful to enjoy.

My Morning Facial Routine

I have found a very simple facial routine that really works for me! After years of trying dozens of name brands, moisturizers, clarifiers, cleansers, soaps, both over the counter, and prescribed, this is the best my skin has felt ever. All I need is my favorite homemade soap and my favorite homemade body butter, and my face is itch free, blemish free, and moisturized. It feels great, is inexpensive, and easy. Recipe is found here,

Exfoliating Almond Meal soap

We sold out of this soap at the Winter Woolen. I'm sure the yummy smell had something to do with it.

This soap contains almond meal, that I ground from raw almonds. The vitamins alone are worth the extra effort, but it is a wonderful way to gently exfoliate as well. I scented it with the obvious almond honey fragrance oil. I like this soap for my eczema days, as it removes the scaley skin that accumulates.
