March Break - Day 4

I'm cheating today with my post because I have done absolutely nothing crafty today at all. I've been knee-deep in cleaning the house in preparation for my Mother's visit tomorrow.

I had asked Joe to make me a 1 lb soap mold for my birthday. I ended up with three because of a misunderstanding. He knows that I typically make three pound batches, so he assumed that I wanted three molds when I really just wanted one so that I can experiment with smaller batches. I win, I now have three awesome 1 lb soap molds!



I had to test the new molds to make sure they worked (of course!). Last weekend I made two small 1 lb batches of soap, freesia and apple blossom scents. I love them both, but the apple blossom scent is quite faint.



During my cleaning spree today I found two cotton dish cloths that I knit AGES ago. I just had to weave in the ends. So, even though I have NO time for anything today, I sat for 15 minutes, wove in the ends and now I have two pretty dish clothes to show off when my Mom arrives.

I was wonder about those pretty clothes in the background. They're adorable. And there is nothing better for scrubbing your face or dishes than with a hand knit cloth.

I can smell that pretty soap from here! Joe did a fine job with those molds :)

What cute little molds. Joe did an awesome job! Way to go, Joe!

I can't wait to smell the soap. Uh. That was a little presumptuous. Sorry. :-)
