Gingerbread house

Here is my little gingerbread house all finished and in my shop. Its bigger than my other houses, just like the fairytale cottage. I have never made a gingerbread house out of gingerbread before, it looks very fiddly. I have seen some lovely ones though with different coloured sweets all over them and much detail. I wouldn't like to eat it after all that work!! I thought i might make some very small houses to put on keyrings, you know , for your house keys maybe. I've made one to try out myself. I'll let you know how that works out , maybe i can put some in my folksy shop. Oh and i have a christmas house on the go too! Friday i am off with a friend to the Creative Stitches and Hobbycraft exhibition in Exeter, ooh i can't wait. I expect i shall come home with bags of supplies that i really, really do need!!!!!!! I'm thinking fabric,buttons, threads.........ooh how exciting!!!

Have a good rest of the week everyone! x x x x

Hello Noelle

Lovely to be back in blogland (thank you for your message today!)
May I say this, and I hope you dont mind me saying this - but your houses get better and better! Thats not to say I dont like the others, on the contrary, I adore them all, but they just seem to be evolving and the detail and the character you create in each one is stunning!!
Cant wait to see what you make next, have fun at the craft fair and give Exeter (my old home town) a little hello from me when you visit please!! :)

Love Julia xxx

Hello Noelle,
It's great to have time for some blogging again and to see all the lovely things people make but I must say this is the loveliest thing ever it's so cute.
I thought about going to Exeter but we are of on 2 weeks holiday in less than a month so I think I should save my money. Anyway have a good time can't wait to see what you buy.
