#142   "Gingerbread Tree Etui"
Part two of the Gingerbread Village Series!

Stitch and Finishing DVD available!


Collect all the pieces in your Gingerbread Village series! All are specially designed and stitched on Gingerbread coloured linen, using delectable overdyed silk and cotton flosses, silks, sparkling buttons and multicoloured beads for candies! Create this wonderful Stitchers’ Etui that doubles as a delicious mantletop Christmas Tree decoration! Delicious buttons and beads make beautiful ornaments for the green branches and lots of white stitching make white icing. Underneath the bargello skirt are four snowy Christmas scenes: two stitchers, a small snowman, a sleigh-ride, and Santa and reindeer flying over town. The pincushion fits inside the Tree and one side opens up to reveal a place for your scissors, some elasticized bands to hold other needlework tools, and you can even add rings to hold your flosses!
This fully lined Gingerbread Tree is trimmed with button and bead candies, and decorated with white stitched ‘icing sugar’. The matching yummy Gingerbread Pincushion is the perfect Christmas Stitching Accessory! Look at Lisa’s Finishing Instructions at the end of the booklet, and you’ll see how easy finishing can be..! You will be able to put your Gingerbread Tree in the middle of your Gingerbread Village.. or set it on your mantle, use as a centerpiece for your Christmas table, or set it beside your Stitching Chair to add some Christmas cheer. Be prepared for a few new stitches, but enjoy the Cross Stitched areas so you can relax and stitch together without losing your concentration. Merry Christmas to you all! -Thea

Sorting The Threads in your Accessory Pack: Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors, as the colours change with the colour of the lightbulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack. Needlepoint Inc. silk floss has 8 strands per length The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length. Dinky Dyes has 6 strands per length. FYI: We noticed that some colours have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires 1.5 yards. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't get confused if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
