gingerbread cottage

This little cottage by Country Cottage Needleworks is all that managed to get stitched in November and December...
but it was a fun stitch!




I wasn't happy with the faces on the gingerbread men, so I left them off....



My plan is to have this made into a pillow...I'm picturing pink pom-pom trim and peppermint striped backing fabric :-)



Would anyone like to have the pattern for this? Since I'm done stitching it, I'd be happy to pass it along. Just leave a comment on this post and I'll pick a name next Sunday, Jan 4th....

Did you all have a nice holiday? Around here, we are gearing up for the new year....

Love your Gingerbread finish. It will be absolutely adorable as a pillow! Thanks so much for recommending Deb...she's a doll!

I LOVE this piece...great job. But a question, what kind of camera do you use where you get such good detail of your stitching?
Also, do you know what's better than a pug? Two pugs!!! :) Used to own one and loved her to death!!
