Candy Cane Cottage

Some of you will be aware that I'm making the Gingerbread Village from The Victoria Sampler. I finished the church and the house at the end of 2012.

You can read more about theses items here.

Last night I finished the stitching on the Candy Cane Cottage. I've only got the Pinkeep to finish now, and I hope to finish that tonight.

I'll leave these pieces like this until I've also finished the Gingerbread Bakery. Mounting the stitched pieces onto padded cardboard is quite fiddly, so when both projects are finished I'll setup a production line and do them both at once. The Candy Cane Cottage stands about 3 inches tall and 3 inches long so it's quite small. I aim to have them both made up before the end of May this year.

The bakery pattern was only released in December and it arrived in the post box of Chirstmas Eve! Just in time to go under the tree. I've got my threads and linen sorted and hope to start on it this week.
