Busy, Busy, Busy

Just like everyone else, I have been really busy.  Markets and Quilt Shows leave little time for actual crafting and then this weekend, I spent both days, updating my online store.

However, because my blog has been neglected, I thought I would share a joke (real life story)!

Have a great week

Gingerbread Trio

Looking through my blog I came across a set of gingerbreads that I made back in 2011 - see post here

I remembered how cute they were, so I dug out the pattern and started again.  

Looking back,  my photography has not improved at all, ha ha.

The first shot was taken in daylight while the latest one was taken inside with a flash .

I wish I was looking at the original photo when I made the second set, even though it is 4 years apart, I used practically the same checked fabrics.  The felt was darker this time around, and cinnamon was rubbed into the felt, but other than that, very similar.

Still very cute and yummy
