WARNING lots of pictures in this post (at least for me).
Well, I have been a busy little beaver and now I have quite a bit of stuff to show you. Rather than do it in one gigantic post, I will be spacing them out over the next few days - so....KEEP COMING BACK!
I am home waiting for the furnace guy to come fix the humidifier and the dog is sleeping nearby SNORING. Just thought you should know.
Now on with the stitching!
I am a Face Book Fan of Craft Gossip. A while back they posted a link to Crafty Pod where Sister Diane made a mini gingerbread house. So using her tutorial I made one too and here it is! Ta Da.
First is a picture of the back.
Next is a picture of the front.
I made up my own roof design, I wanted the look of snow/frosting and I think it came out great (if I may say so myself).
Now I will present you with the building process. Here are all the sides stitched together (I put my initials and date on the bottom). Diane suggested making the peaked pieces first and then making the sides and bottom to size. If I do another one I plan on making the sides a little wider. She also made the windows three dimensional, but I did not want to do that (so I hope you check out her site for her cute house). I stitched each house part separately and added beads to the back window sills and a sequin door knob. I used some kreinik gold to add some glitter to the front. Diane used buttons and snow sequins.
Well that is all for this post. For my next post I will talk about the great time I had this Sunday at the Sampler Guild of the Rockies Christmas tea! So stay tuned.
