Yummy gingerbred men!


My gingerbread men are all finished and ready to be popped on the tree or given to special people. although I have to admit I do like where I've hung them for this photo. I had a real problem with the paint and almost wish I had just sewn the white icing details on now. I thought the paint would be like some I've used in the past that gets more puffy as it dries. This paint however did not and I had to reapply it more thickly for the effect I wanted. Couldn't resist using the glitter felt I picked up back in Poole. So they are a mix of green or red glitter backs corresponding to their buttons.


sorry about the poor photo, I think my camera is on its last legs. It doesn't like to focus and has now started turning its self off :(
If I get time I will make some more decorations, snowmen and maybe Christmas trees but right now I need to carry on with sewing my friends Christmas present.

I'll leave you with a picture of my gorgeous Suki looking very snug and sleepy in my unmade bed. I think she has right idea, its far too cold to be up and about today!
