Not to toot my own horn..... from Appalachian Quilts

... but *TOOT TOOT*!  Remember the soap I told you I was formulating for Hubs?  I named the base recipe "Generation X".  He was complaining about dry skin, especially his hairy little legs, after showering.  He was even developing a little dry patch in the small of his back.  I had put a little too much fragrance oil in it so the batch seized a little, but it was still good.  We cut into it this weekend and started using it Saturday.  OMG!  What a difference!  I have always slathered myself with lotion to keep my skin hydrated...pretty much for ...
