I'm still here, crafting away!

Nurse HippoI haven't had a lot of time to blog here over the last few days, so I thought I'd just do a quick 5 minute post on what I've been up to. I've just finished this cute little hippo as a commission for a Christmas gift. I am pleased with the result - although I'm not sure whether hippos would make the best health professionals...

I'm also busy making 5 Christmas stockings and 2 ami bunnies, all sales/commission pieces - I'm really delighted that people have been making orders, and I am feeling very satisfyingly busy. Otherwise I have a couple of Secret Santas and a Christmas ornament swap to do. The ornament swap should be fun - it has to be using material that you already have in your stash. This should be interesting because I haven't got anything hugely Christmassy left after all these stockings! I've been looking at this really great
Handmade Christmas Ornament group on Flickr for some inspiration.

My final project at the moment is our
Christmas Matters blog. It's a record of all that we are doing to prepare for Christmas, along with recipes, crafts, music and book reviews. We've made a pact to try and blog every day, which is quite hard work, but I think we've only missed a day so far. I'm really enjoying all the anticipation!
