Gingerbread House

I'm having a quick catch up - sorry lots of photos !!! But I think they are worth it...


A knitted gingerbread house...

It will be at all ICFH shows this season.

Knitted to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital and The North Devon Hospice.






The windows all have sweets round them...

Everything is knitted or covered in knitting (the chairs)..











The walls are knitted, and so is the floor,


And so are the pictures and the clock.

The fire extinguisher is there because the fire brigade in Bideford said it was a fire hazard - how many woollen houses do you know spontaneously combust ?












There was someone in residence, looking very happy.

His breakfast was cooking on the stove, and his bed ready if he felt tired...
















Someone had been baking a cake...

and there were fresh flowers on the dresser...













For those that miss it there is a book available with lots of ginger recipes, the pattern for the gingerbread men, and some photos of how the house came to be.. I will try and find out if they are selling it mail order...

Wow, what a lovely house! Pouts and stamps foot - I WANT ONE! Is it likely to visit Liverpool at all? Or somewhere relatively close? I'd love to see it in the flesh (so to speak).

Best wishes from sunny Liverpool
