Gingerbread House Embroidery Part One



A few weeks ago, I shared a photo on Instagram of an embroidery project in progress.  

I want to make sure I blog about this project as well!
I am embroidering one of the gingerbread houses from my gingerbread embroidery pattern set.   

I am using this bright, candy inspired color palette: 


So far, I have outlined the house in Back Stitch 


and outlined the door and the roof edge in Whipped Back Stitch:



I am using Straight Stitches in alternating colors for the path way stones: 



This is what I have done so far...I will keep posting my progress on this project and update you on the floss color numbers I use as well.

What great colors, so bright. I am loving the texture of the stepping stones. I am looking forward to seeing more as you progress.
