After a short break, I am back finally! 

These past months, I had been busy with other activities and hobbies. I’d taken a workshop about the process of soap making and have been churning up batches of recipes in a variety of shapes and sizes. I’d also gone back to my sewing projects; and managed to finish three more large quilts. 

It occurred to me that a person can have many interests and hobbies. Just how many hobbies are too many for anyone? The answer is never too many for me. I love keeping my mind and hands busy….

Here are some photos I like to share.

here are just a few of my deliciously soap made using the cold pressed method (more about this on next post).
