I did a Bastille using Zany's Faux Seawater. I'm a beginner and this is probably the first time that I'm happy with the swirl on top. I also ordered a copy of "Soap Throughout the Ages" by R Lucock Wilson from 1952 to quench my thirst for soaping history.

That is a lovely top!

I made white wine soap to go with the red wine soap I made a couple of weeks ago. I'll post pics tomorrow, when I cut it.

I finally found that recipe for that soap I mentioned last page. Both bars were made with 50% olive oil. They are almost 3 years old and they both get slimey, one more than the other. Definitely revamping that recipe and made some notes. I think I might swear off clays in soap too.

I ordered working on learning to read crochet charts and tatting.
I thought you meant a different kind of tatting (tattooing) at first... :D

I am hoping to make stuff this week but the weather turned hot so it's uncomfortable to work in the soap dungeon (it's really not that warm in there, mid 70's, but you know how it goes when you're moving around and working with warm ingredients, and I don't tolerate heat to start with...). I need to make foot scrub, face scrub, and the last two soaps for my aloe lineup: eucamint, and lavender martini - although I'm rethinking the lavender martini as I've made it once and it developed DOS before it got off the cure rack. I'm suspicious of the FO causing it, as I made several soaps from the same batch of MB oils, same lye bottle, same aloe juice, only difference was the FO and colorants. I may make a smaller batch to see if it happens again and go from there. Then I need to start embeds for some fun soaps that I have planned for the fall/Christmas season. And finally decided I have researched lotion enough and I'm ready to start making it.

I'm personally in love with their mustaches. I love when that swirl pops up!

Well, I'm honored if you decide to call it that! It's a beautiful soap!
