Clean Livin'

At Christmas I received a wonderful gift, some cold pressed soap, from my friend, Kaylyn. It was heavenly.  In March I traded her soap for some quilting and in May I got more for my birthday.  Not wanting to take advantage of my dear friend, but wanting that heavenly soap I had to learn how to make my own.
 I watched a lot of you tube videos, googled recipes.  I found a recipe that I had all the ingredients for. I didn't want to buy a bunch of stuff until I knew I could do it. Well, lucky me it set up in the mold. Next came the hard part, waiting.  Finally the four to six week curing has taken place and I have soap.
Can't wait to share it with my friends. Oh and to try more recipes!  The list is growing almost as fast as my quilt list

  1. How fun! My grandmother used to make her own soaps and they were wonderful.

  2. I had no idea that it took that long to make soap . . . or at least for it to be hard and ready to use. I am new to your blog and came here because of your quilts . . . I am in awe of your talent. They remind me of kaleidoscopes and each one in an incredible piece of art. I'm new to quilting, but ever since the quilting bug bit me two year ago, I have been hooked. I am your newest follower. I would love to invite you over to my blog and hope that you just might follow me back. No pressure . . . because if you are looking for other people to inspire your quilting, I would not be that person, I'm here to be inspired by your work :)
    Have a wonderful weekend and happy quilting (and soap making )
    Connie :)
