The Fifth Day of Christmas

January 7, 2011

And here is a gingerbread house for yesterday’s mice. Well, not really — the mice are too big for it. And the door doesn’t really open. And it’s full (overfull) of stuffing. Oh dear, my son’s logical, practical, literal side is rubbing off on me.

The pattern is Laura Howard’s “Gingerbread House” in Fa la la la Felt: 45 Handmade Holiday Decorations although altered a little — I was inspired by Jenny Kearney’s beautiful ornament with its boxy shape. My snowy roof forms little wings at the edges instead of having the snow obey gravity like it should. Oops. I may tack it down, later.
