Gingerbread House

During December I was madly stitching my latest cross-stitch kit, I bought it at the knitting and stitching show at the end of November. It’s a kit by Nutmeg Designs for a 3d gingerbread house. Last time I shared it I was still working on the walls…

I finished the cross-stitch and added the back-stitch, I’ve just got some beads to stitch on now, I’m waiting to finish all the stitching before I start the beads…

The little rectangle at the top is going to be the porch roof.

Once the walls were stitched I just had the roof to do, I say just, but it actually seems quite big as the roof has a steep pitch. I thought it would be a bit monotonous but actiually it was quite a good one to stitch over Christmas as once I worked the pattern out I could just stitch it whilst watching a film without having to constantly look at the pattern…

I just need to finish the white border, each white square has a coloured centre too, then I can stitch a bead in the centre of each ginger square.

It’s grown pretty quickly really, just not quick enough to finish it before Christmas! I need to remember next time to buy them earlier in the autumn – there’s another house, a church and a Christmas tree in the set so it would be nice to do one each year.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Somewhere in my stash I have a few Nutmeg Co designs I must have acquired about 20 years ago. I’m astonished at their range now — good on ’em! Thanks for reminding me. *goes off to dig them out…*

  4. Such a clever design — I have not come across 3D cross stitch until now.

    Does it start 3D when finished or does it fold down? Looks so cute.
