Old Idea, New Item!

I thought this would amuse some of you-
Its from Christmas '63/'64 (if I've counted the Roman numerals correctly!) and it gets hauled out every Christmas since I was a teenager and began making people's presents! It's older than me, and probably more useful!!!
I spent yesterday afternoon working on these felt gingerbread houses.
It took some rummaging in shoe boxes to find what I think are the right embellishments, and I don't know whether to add more buttons or rick-rack, but the one on the left is as finished as I can do for the moment.

Time travel in the craft room - nice! Your gingerbread houses are darling. They're just right the way they are, and need no further embellishments. :>}

Your gingerbread house ornaments are very cute. It looks just right and the way you quilted on the windows and doors with the machine stitching is simply perfect.

Oh, my, I recognize that cover! I think you've dated it about right. I used to make a lot of things from the McCalls magazines.

Your gingerbread houses are adorable!

Thanks for stopping by! I think you're gonna have to speak to Wendy though about eating the gingerbread couple - she might object!!!

I do love your gingerbread house ornaments - I must tell Wendy about them:0)
