Heh. Right now I'm in the throes of soapmaking. I need to bind a quilt, then do a lap quilt with things from my stash plus this:

Then a baseball twin size.

Also, bind my DD's quilt. Or, make a ruffle. I'm leaning toward ruffle.

I bet soapmaking is fun, do you sell your soap?

I do, I do! Since it's cold process I've gotta get it done NOW so it has time to cure.

Right now I'm about 300 bars short of what I want. :lol:

Noooooo worries, right?

One year I helped a friend make soap for his children. It was a tradition that the kids always got handcrafted gifts, and he had just divorced his wife, so he was on his own. We made soap in bars and different molds. I got hooked. Now I have all this soapmaking stuff to do something with.

We needed to wrap the soap in something, so I made little drawstring pouches from some cute Christmas fabric. He included a hand carved Santa in the gift, since he loved to work with wood. He passed away a few months after Christmas due to lung cancer. His 3 kids treasure that Santa and soap, knowing that he took the time and interest to do it all on his own. :)
