Day 16: Wrap a Christmas Present for your Teacher

Here are the boys hard at work.

I thought I'd show you the handmade goodness inside.


I knitted these washcloths using the patterns from knitdishclothcorner: on the left is Lily and on the right is Pearls. The little bags have our handmade lemongrass soap, which Jenny and Astrid and I made a few weeks ago.  (Actually it was mostly Jenny but Astrid and I were definitely there for moral support).  There seems to be some sort of internet virus going round where people are suddenly overcome with a compulsion to make their own soap.  We caught it from Pea Soup. I think if you catch this virus you never actually recover either, you just go on making soap for ever because you enjoy it.

Soap Opera Mosaic


  1. It's looking pretty contagious, from where I'm sitting. YUM!

  2. I want to know how!!

    I have the most spectacular Lemon Myrtle tree in my backyard, what a great way to use the wonderful smelling leaves! Can I? Ask Jenny if it would work....pleeeaase? And then tell her to come to Sydney. :)

  3. I love the short one staring over the soap. That's going to be her author picture on a book some day - or maybe just a facespace profile.

  4. Yay, I've been meaning to ask you for weeks how the soapmaking went, but I keep forgetting.

    I'm at work (ssshhhh) and I've just wrapped up and delivered 11 bars of soap to my workmates. Need to make more now!

  5. That soap-making thing looks lovely. Is it very hard?


Don't let the cat get your tongue.
