Oooh! Almost 20,000

20,000 views on my blog! Wow! Thanks so much to all of you who visit and for all your great comments on my many and varied projects!

Now - here's the latest on my Gingerbread House. And no....I didn't start the finishing. I am almost positive I do not have enough matboard to finish it. Plus the directions indicate two different thickness of matboards (I only have one thickness.)

First the biscornu:

I temporarily placed a dark piece of fabric behind the stitching, so that the hardanger work would show better.

The teeny, tiny scissor fob (the first side - I am halfway with the over-one gingerbread man for the second side). This little thing is only about the size of a quarter.
Scissor fob (side 1)

Again - thanks to all of you for stopping by.
