A little of this... a little of that..

My weekend was filled with a little of this and a little of that and not a lot of any particular thing. I spent a great deal of time with my mother since my siblings were all out of town for the long weekend. We went to and from dialysis, ate a few meals out, shopped for and planted some flowers and visited the graves of my grandparents and my dad.
I got the nursery finished. Hopefully Colin and future babies will be comfortable in this room. I think it turned out nice.

I also found some time to make soap yesterday:
This will be approximately 35 bars of Lemon Verbena and Plum Spice scented soap with shea butter added. It should be awesome. I embedded some pink and brown "melt and pour" soap dots for a sort of neopolitan look to add interest. Hopefully I'll have some photos of the cut soap later in the week. I'm going to use a lot of this for Christmas gifts this year.
In knitting news, I finished the bishop's scarf... must block it soon... and I'm within two inches of finishing the first half of the Clementine Shawlette. So, there was a little knitting too!

I wish your blog had the ability to emit scents -- I'd love to smell your soap!
