New Ami

A few nights ago, I started a new project; a pattern by Lydia Tresselt, who designs gorgeous dolls! I'll post up some wip pictures, when I have something more than half a head!

Check out her designer page on Ravelry!

Merry Christmas!

I hope you all had a fantastic day yesterday! I certainly had one of my best Christmas Day's, in years (certainly an improvement on last year!). So, I thought I would share a few pictures from my Christmas, as a whole. 

Our tree ^.^

Fireplace; stockings and advent calendars made by my Mum!
The yummy hamper I gave my Grandparents
Rainbow Christmas cake!
Merry Christmas! Now all that is over, I can get back to my crochet xD

Rainbow Cakes!

Sorry I haven't posted about crochet in a while! I've been really busy working and getting everything ready for Christmas, so haven't really had time to work on anything. I have, however, done this...

Edible rainbow!!

My boyfriend and I ventured into a baking session, and cooked up some rainbow cupcakes! They taste absolutely fantastic, and look awesome! All you need is white cake mix, and food colouring (we used colouring gel, because the colours come up more vibrant...as you can see). 

Christmas and rainbows!

What do you think??

Christmas Begins!

Well, Christmas had already started in the world of Siân, but yesterday I helped my boyfriend decorate his house. Ok, I say helped...I more supervised...and decorated myself...

The great bauble experiment!

It was good fun! I have never seen so many Christmas decorations, and they aren't even finished yet!!

In my house, we only really decorate our lounge. We have a tree, which is always red and gold themed in decor, and then we cover our fireplace in holly and fairylights, which always looks nice. We have decorations that my Mum has made over the years as well, including custom advent calendars for my brother and I, and stockings which come out nearer Christmas Day. No decorating in our house until after the 15th December though - my Dad doesn't like it being Christmas before his birthday haha!

I am going to spend the rest of my afternoon wrapping presents now, and trying to get everything in order and sorted before I go back to work on Thursday night. Hopefully I can get it done! If not, I'll just have to try and fit wrapping in, whenever I'm not sleeping. Not ideal but I can get by xD
