Mini Blanket... at long last!! Fancy Soap... (and an award!)

Well... I have finally finished a "mini" blanket I've been working on since before I started blogging.  A picture of part of it is even in my bar thingy at the top!  I think I've mentioned it a couple of times, but so long ago I doubt anyone remembers!  (Apart from my friend Anna - here it is at last Anna!!)

When I call it a "mini" blanket - it's basically the size of a baby blanket, just without the baby!  I will put it over my knees like a granny!

I love the colours, although I'm not sure those pictures show them off that well.

Here it is, looking rather uneven, and very small!!  Odd photo!

And as it looks better rolled up... here is another rolled up shot - don't get too excited!!  ;o)

As if I hadn't put enough photos in... here are more of soap, shaped like a cupcake, from the Lumberjack as one of my Valentine's presents.  It's a bit too edible-looking, though - I'm not sure I can trust myself not to take a bite!

All wrapped up prettily... and inside...

How nice is that?!  Can you believe it's soap?!  Amazing... although it's far too nice to use!  (Eating is another matter...!)

He even got it from Folksy (supporting handmade - good work, Lumberjack!)  Click here for the shop.

Now, onto the award...
