My soap fetish... and jacket progress

Every Christmas I ask for some soap as gifts. A lot of the time my request is met with strange looks of disbelief. I guess people can't believe that something so simple could make me so happy. A bar of nice soap is all it takes to make my day. I've already told my husband - "If you ever get that urge to bring home flowers for your wife, bring her some nice soap instead". Anyway, so this year I scored a lot of soap!! Here's all the soap I got this Christmas. My brothers and sisters-in-law, and my Mother-in-law have gotten me enough soap to last till my birthday in June... My nose is so happy! To me, there is absolutely nothing like starting each day with a pleasant smelling bar of soap.

My rendition of Simplicity 3628 is coming along. I was able to finish the lining and have gotten as far as creating the collar. Did most of this last night and early this morning. It's so fab not having to go to work!!


  1. OMG, I really love your jacket, it's really coming on. What kind of fabric are you using? I will really like to know, I am in the states now, and I will like to buy some fabric before I leave for Canada. I really love your fabric. Happy Sewing.

  2. Very nice jacket. I made my very first fleece jacket and it came out so well that I made one for my friend for Christmas she loved it. You can see it on my blog
