|Gingerbread Bakery - work in progress|
I went back and unpicked the beading, grass and base of one panel, and moved them all down two threads. Silk thread doesn't unpick well, so I had to throw away the thread I'd used for the grass. Now I may not have enough of that variegated thread to finish all 7 sides of the bakery in the same thread. I've had a look through my collection of threads and have found something similar so it will have to do.

Anyway, I'm back on track now with only 2 panels left to complete. I will easily finish before the end of May. Then I can assemble both the Gingerbread Bakery and Candy Cane Cottage during June. Some people in this part of the world have a mid winter Christmas celebration on 25 June. Maybe I'll have to do that as an excuse to bring out my Gingerbread Village!
