Gingerbread Church...
Part three of the Gingerbread Village Series
 
     
This beautiful Gingerbread Church is the latest addition to a whole Gingerbread Village which I will continue to create over the coming years. Just like the Gingerbread House and Gingerbread Tree Etui, this year’s figure is stitched on a Gingerbread coloured linen. However, this time you can decide to use black linen for the roofs, or substitute the same linen as for the Gingerbread walls. You will be stitching with delectable silk flosses, Perle Cottons, sparkling beads and delicious looking ‘candy’ snow buttons. Unlike the first two pieces, this building is not lined, which makes finishing easier and faster! The delicious fragrant Gingerbread Church is dripping with icing, has glowing windows, and lots of decorative candies to welcome the hungry visitor. Lisa’s “Beautiful Finishing” instructions are included at the end of this leaflet. This year, place all three pieces including the completed Gingerbread Church, your Gingerbread House and your Gingerbread Tree Etui, on your mantle for the Holidays! You can also place it beside your Stitching Chair to give you some extra Christmas cheer as you stitch your last minute ornaments. Look for more Gingerbread Village additions in future years! Sending all of you a delicious and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from my house to yours! -Thea
