Gingerbread Houses

I am stitching up another gingerbread house. I am using some interesting color combinations with this one.  Do you like the rosy pink color with the lavender and pink?  I am just getting started so there is still time to change colors!   


You may remember these three already completed houses - actually two cottages and a town house ;)


I am really liking this new one, especially with the upstairs balcony.   I am adding my new favorite blending filament floss to add some sparkle to the "frosting" on the eaves and roof!  After I finish stitching this, I have two more houses to complete and when those are done I'm going to plan out a design for a quilt similar to this one.

Kim, I think a simple red and white or that darker pink I should say would be perfect.

I love your gingerbread houses. the colours are beautiful! Could I ask who make the blending filament that you use as I would love to have a go with it x

big B said...

Angela - Great idea - I love red so I will probably do that.
Hi Denise - Thank you!
Thanks Kate! The blending filament is from Kreinik Corp www.kreinik.com - you will love using it! They also make a metallic braid (I have tried the size 8 "fine")it is so easy to use and doesn't tangle or break apart.

Oh I would love to see a quilt with these beautiful patterns. I just started quilting and am in love with the process. I haven't added embroidery to them yet but this gives me an idea...headed to Etsy to buy your gingerbread patterns! Can't wait to see them all! By the way, I love the colors you chose.
