Hello..Long time

Hey still here, sorry for the long break.  Oh and Merry Christmas.. The New Year is just around the corner.

I wanted to share a cake with you that my Teacher did with a friend of hers, for my friend.

She is Russian and her Fiancé is from Wales, she wanted the doll and the dragon together.

I love all the little details on the doll and Dragon.

The bride was very happy with the cake and her partner was very surprised, he wasn't told what the cake would look like.

I made the cupcakes to go on the tower, I haven't received the photos yet. So it maybe another post.

Monica and Jin do classes in Auckland.

Knit a Snail.

He is finished!

A few things that need fixing up, like the grafting and I don't think I would add the pink and purple. But it is still cute.

Knitted Bunny

How cute am I? This little bunny is so cute, A great easy knit from Ravelry. It is the little bridesmaids pattern.

It was a very easy pattern to follow.

It was a quick knit with very little yarn needed. I think I used less then 30g of yarn for the bunny.

I love how I attached on the head looking up at you (by accident), it is like she is looking at the stars.

The cute little roses and dress, in my opinion is what makes this pattern.

Amigurumi Knits

This book and it's knit are amazing. See it Here

I have made the earth worm, The cat had a play with it this morning.

The beginning of the snail, so cute and it has been quick and simple to knit so far.

When you stuff the curl in the shell it comes to life.  I had to stop here until I can go to a wool store. I need a golden colour for the body. I did buy a cream, and it didn't really suit.
I also knitted a bunny, Tomorrow's post.

Did I Say.. Gingerbread houses?

It started with a big ball of gingerbread dough.

It ended up like this, I love to do window displays and I can't wait for every year when I can do the store christmas window. Last year my boss had a different idea, so this had to wait until this year.

I had a ball looking for the lollies to decorate these beauties.

Santa, Frosty and the tree were all lollipops that I pulled the sticks off.

I used hundreds and thousands for the roof tiles, can you believe it was a whole packet?

I made four mini houses too.

It was great to hear all walks of life from outside going, WOW, Look at that and How clever. It just makes it all worth the effort.

Because all our ovens are double ovens it makes great use of the space and people can see how big the ovens actually are.
