Smells like Christmas

I've finished most of my Muff now, I only have the long bit of cuff to do and I'm finished. I'm debating adding a neck cord, I need to figure out a way of making it removable. I thought of putting a couple of buttons inside and making a cord with loops on the end, but I'm not sure if the buttons will rub. I need to think about it.
I was filling in for Maureen at the Pottery Studio the other day and it wasn't that busy. Luckily I took my knitting with me so I got quite alot of Flora done.

And Thursday I made some Winter Spice scented soaps for Christmas presents. They will be going in the spa packages I'm making for everybody. I used a Pringles tube for a mould. It worked quite well. I don't eat Pringles but my brother does. M asked me why my brother was allowed to eat them and he wasn't. Simple, I'm not with my brother when he's shopping, or I wouldn't let him either. And as I said to M, he's a bit overweight, but my brother is more. I said if I let him eat Pringles, then his belly would be as big as my brothers *lol* He had no reply to that one!

They smell lovely and they're making the house smell like Christmas. I just hope the scent stays.

I've also made a few things for the Stocking swap, but I don't want to post any piccys yet in case anyone's peeking! Hopefully I will get into town this afternoon to find some fabric for the actual stocking. ManU is on at lunch time and I normally like to get out of the house when football's on as M gets a little enthusiastic!

I'm going to my Sis's tonight for a sleepover. That's always good fun. Just have to resist the garlic bread urge!

I've set up a diet-a-long blog, so if you want to join in, let me know with your e-mail address and I'll send you an invite.
