Design Wall Monday - More Be Merry BOM blocks

I have 6 move blocks done for the Be Merry BOM that I'm doing with Jennings Community Church.
Next month will finish up the blocks and the month after that will be putting it all together :)

On these blocks, the stitching on the bow appliques still need to be finished up (forgot to bring my threads along). These sure are looking cute!

Design Wall Monday - and a sleepy Army Guy

I finally got my April blocks done for the Be Merry Block of the Month I've been working on with the sewing group at Jennings Community Church. It may not look like I'm done, but the snowman gets button eyes, etc after quilting.
 I have also gotten my May blocks all cut out, so I'll be ready to sew next week when we meet up again. 

I couldn't resist sharing this picture of how hard the Army Guy can sleep. He was wiped out Saturday afternoon and feel asleep on the couch. Not sure HOW the pillow ended up balanced on his head, but it sure gave Princess Sunshine and me a chuckle!

What I've been doing - not much quilting!

I have been soaping ... I've got 7 batches done (one batch is spoken for and is just like one pictured below):

In this soap portrait you see:
Oats N Honey
Lavender Lane
Three Kings
Orchard Breeze
Cleopatra of Castile
White Ginger and Amber

Now to think up theme names ... I'll be marketing these at a Renaissance Faire this summer and want to make the names more appropriate for the festival :) Not to mention retooling the labeling to match the theme as well!

What have you been up to?
