January Wrap Up

 No. I still don't have my new laptop. Amazon lied to me. Now they say it will be here tomorrow. We'll see. In the meantime I convinced The Mister to let me use his again. He's not a fan of sharing his so I'm hoping my new one shows up soon. In the meantime I am keeping busy packing up soap. The last batch will go out tomorrow so be on the lookout. As you can see I've still got tons left so if you are on the fence- don't be shy, head over to Ravelry and help me out by adopting a bar or two.

See? This is why I need it gone. I am already making spring soap from the new samples that came in the last supply shipment.  Starting on the left is Coconut Water and Pineapple, Strawberry Thyme (?) Lemonade and an old favorite of mine Oatmeal, Milk and Honey. I have no idea what they are going to look like when I get around to cutting them but they all smell divine.

 Now for the January wrap-up. This is how far I got on this month's block of The Sheep Virtues. Tomorrow I will start the February block and see how far I get.

 My winter sampler has a new little tree and the beginnings of a deer.

 Dear Jane has one block done and the second started.

I'm not sure how I did it but the snowflake runner and mini quilt got done.

 The second blue border on the giant blanket is this big. I'm starting to feel too optimistic about getting it done this year. That's never a good thing.

 Pimpeliesse is hopefully nearing the end because that ball of handspun is getting mighty small.

Finally I want to thank Mary for the sweet note about Daddio and this lovely heart. I know I've said it many times but you hooky people amaze the heck out of me. I get a headache just thinking about how this was constructed. Thanks again, Mary, it was very thoughtful!


  1. The snowflake runner and mini quilt are so pretty. Congrats on another wonderful finish.

  2. A fun post. LOve the new soap. You've made great progress on all of your projects too. Pimpeliesse is looking good. I love that pattern and have made at least a dozen of them. I've also made that crocheted heart a few times. How sweet of Mary to think of you. You are right. Bloggy friends are just the best! (Hope the computer shows up soon!)

  3. Anyone who has not experienced the beauty of your soap is really missing out!
    The snowflake mini quilt and runner look beautiful! The embroidery pieces are just so sweet; I really miss having the eyesight to do that! Thanks for the wrap up - it's always fun!

  4. Such great projects, all!

    Hope your new laptop comes through tomorrow!

  5. That new soap is amazing! You actually got a lot done in Jan considering all the outside events that demanded your attention!
