I’ve just started stitching canvases for 3 dimensional finishing. I’ve done Halloween houses by Melissa Shirley and Susan Roberts and now I’m ready to start stitching Christmas houses. I collect antique cake stands and I will use them as pedestals for the houses—I can decorate my kitchen and dining room tables or put them as is on side tables or the mantel. My motto is that once you have two of something you have started a collection—these two gingerbread houses with stitch guides by Collection of Designs would be the perfect starting point.
