I'm sorry that my blog has been absent of anything quilt-related - our entire family has been immersed in making soap for a school project for most of November and December. Our elementary has a Sixth Grade Marketplace every year where each student creates their own business to sell goodies to their classmates and parents to raise money for a 2-day Urban Adventure field trip in May. We decided on handmade soap for our project, and making 116 bars of soap truly was a family effort!
Sadly, the weather interfered with Marketplace and instead of having 2 days to pitch and sell their products, my boys only had one day due to snow closing school the last 3 days before winter break. They didn't sell as many as we had hoped, sadly. But they looked awfully cute while doing it. Here are my 2 boys (yes, they really are twins!) and you can see our handmade soaps hanging from the tree and on the table.
Looks like everyone I know will be getting soap for Christmas! VBG.
