1/2 down, 1/2 to go

What a terrible backdrop to photograph this, but you get the gist. This is now on a holder and you make another one exactly like it and kitchener them together. I feel like I'm making progress on this one. The pink lace is another matter. That thing is never-ending. I've decided that this shawlette will look great with a yellow blouse. So I'm on a mission to find a nice one.

Here is the cut soap:

I had fun playing with this last night. I'm disappointed that the brown dots are not more noticable. Oh well, it smells fabulous. None of the bars are cut exactly the same since I have to do it by hand. I used to have a cutter but it got lost over the years, probably thrown out. After looking at these, I realize now that I need some more professional molds and a new cutter. In years past, people REALLY wanted to buy this stuff at holiday time and if that happens again, I need the bars to be uniform in size. They are perfect stocking stuffers and that "little something" to give to people when you need something small. I think I'm getting addicted to this hobby all over again.

My goodness you had a busy weekend! The soap looks awesome and I'll bet it smells great, too! I have yet to try the soapmaking. I want to -- I read the book all the time! -- I just haven't gotten up the nerve to try it yet. I need a day with nobody home. And a mold. And the other supplies. LOL

The shawlette looks great, Holly! Hope to see you soon!!
