Fun Mail Day – Soap!
Not too long ago, I received a fun package in the mail. It contained soap!
I recently came back into contact with an old friend of mine. She is raising her family of seven children on the other side of the country making soap! Her soap is absolutely gorgeous! One of the soaps she sent me was called Clean Cotton. I took a picture of it, but I can’t find the picture I took. I thought having picture on the computer would mean it wouldn’t get lost. This picture is from Carrie’s website:
I couldn’t wait to try the soap, but at the same time, it was so nice it took me a couple days to open it. It felt luxurious being able to use something hand made so beautifully. Reading about the way she makes soap on her website and on facebook reminds me of making quilts. It is a creative process.
My husband now wants to make soap. I don’t think so! I’ll leave that to Carrie and and stick with quilts! I don’t need to wear gloves and safety goggles to make quilts.
I wanted to share this because Carrie has agreed to let me give some of her soap away on my blog! It won’t be today, but I will be giving away some of this beautiful soap in the near future!
Have you ever used home made soap? I hope those who use my quilts enjoy it as much as I enjoy this soap!
