This time of year we have all the wonderful decorations and those delicious , tempting sweets.
It has always been so much fun to create a gingerbread house each year .
Gingerbread House Christmas 2014
It is also a great time to stitch a gingerbread ornament - the no calorie kind!
Here is the one I am working on from Julia's Needlework Designs that will be a little box with a hinged lid.
I thought I would share some of my favorite stitches for gingerbread. On this one I am using
upright cross stitch.
Some other stitches that work well are Serendipity, Nobuko, Criss cross Hungarian and Woven. Each gives a little texture to the design.
So enjoy stitching and all the season's goodies!
