Gingerbread Creations

I found this one while going through my box of old cross stitch magazines.  I started it for my friend, Purshina, my gingerbread house partner.  I must have gotten sidetracked along the way and then forgot about it.  Thankfully, December is a long way away so I’m hoping to finish it THIS year so I can give it to her as a surprise!

We used to make gingerbread houses together, but it’s been a long time since we’ve done it.  Of course, that was before I had the boys and my carefree days were still carefree!  Now there are new gingerbread houses to be made, with three eager boys to help create new memories.
And here is Nathan’s masterpiece he made in preschool.
      Before – decorated  /  After – all the good bits eaten!
