This month is all about soap. I know I don't want to ever be without my homemade soap, but I no longer want to make for others or spend time dreaming up the perfect soap. Our plan was to use up all the ingredients and pack a few containers with soap that will keep for awhile. Hubby loves my soap too and was very enthusiastic about making soap with me.
As far as my quilting goes, I have only made a little progress on my turtle quilt. I have made rows, and I like them. Next I need to do the turtle appliques.
My old mystery quilt challenge Carolina Crossroads decision was made about the border fabric, and I did cut it. But that's it.
my old Christmas Block of the month has more pieces cut and only a few pieced together.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment, and so exciting to make your own soap. The snowflakes soap are very nice and I think they smell good with peppermint. Great quilt project you are working on. :-)ReplyDelete
