The Victoria Sampler - Gingerbread Candy Cane Cottage
Part four of the Gingerbread Village Series
This Gingerbread Cottage is so cute, you'll be tempted to take a bite out of it!
Just like the Gingerbread House, Gingerbread Church and the Gingerbread Tree
Etui, this year's building is stitched on a Gingerbread coloured linen. I've
used a lovely blue linen for the roof to match the doors, although you can of
course substitute any other colour. The Gingerbread Pinkeep is also adorable!
You will be stitching with delectable silk flosses, Perle Cottons, sparkling
beads and delicious looking 'candy' like snow buttons and tiny gingerbread men
buttons. This wee cottage is not lined, which makes finishing easier and faster!
It is dripping with icing, has different coloured windows, and lots of
decorative candies to welcome the hungry visitor. Lisa's "Beautiful Finishing"
instructions, with colour photographs of the process, are included at
the end of this leaflet. This year, display all four pieces, including the
completed Gingerbread Church, Gingerbread House and Gingerbread Tree Etui, on
your mantle for the Holidays! Let these yummy stitched goodies give you some
extra Christmas cheer as you stitch your last minute ornaments. Look for more of
my Gingerbread Village additions in future years! Sending all of you a delicious
and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from my house to yours! -Thea
