Some knitting and other craft

If you are crafty like me then you'll have been madly trying to finish off WIPs in time for the ever rapidly approaching Christmas. For me this has meant a bit of sewing, some knitting, and for something different, soap making (although that was mostly for us as a fun project for the kids and I). I have almost finished the advent Calendar. It is in use but I am not happy with the way I've hung it so after Christmas I will fix it up and then take pics of the new and improved Calendar with all the bits and pieces. My sewing progress stalled for a while as my machine died so my hubby bought me a new one for Christmaslove

I bought a Janome Memory Craft 5200. Lucky for me the Christmas specials were on at just the right time so i got a very good deal on it. It sews beautifully and I think I might be a little bit in love with it (so much better than my old machine). I wont give a full review on it yet as I haven't used it for very long. Anyway, enough about that.

Here are a few of the things I've made in preparation for Christmas:

1. Isla's Christmas outfit 2. Sorello KAL 3. Melt and Pour Olive Oil Soap 4. Little Rockets for the kids 5. Isla's Olearia Shrug

I think I'm all crafted out until after Christmas now. So have a very Merry Christmas and "See you" in the New Year :)
