Ahhhh….the Smell of Gingerbread…

…is coming from my sewing room!  With less than 3 months left till Christmas I thought I had better start a few Christmas projects…like this little wool Gingerbread Man Candle mat…

P1100100This is what I will be stitching at Heritage Quilting today….

P1100097

I didn’t use a pattern…as I just wanted a simple little mat…P1100098

..that will hopefully evolve with each little stitch…into a Gingerbread mat…I’ll keep you posted!!

  Have a Marvelous Monday and Happy Quilting!~P

Oh no!!! I decorate my kitchen during the Christmas holidays with gingerbread boys and girls. Be still my heart. Sigh!!! It's delightful.

Very cute! and good job with no pattern. Sometimes patterns get in my way. Does that make sense?

aww, so sweet! I love decorating gingerbread men - and since this version is calorie-free, I'm sure I'd love it even more. Have fun at stitch!

The gingerbread mat is tooooo cute. I've not made anything with wool but I see so much in blogland I will have to give it a try. I've got wool and nice sharp scissors so there is no excuses. You do inspire me.
