I have been working on my gingerbread house. I have done the background for the roof.
I was hoping the glittery thread would show up better in the sunshine, but it really didn't.

Now comes the fun part - I will be putting peppermints on the roof. You can see my test peppermints below. They are made with perle cotton #8.
These are test samples for peppermint sticks that go by the front door. On the right is feather stitch over knit weight yarn (sample 1). Left is is feather stitch over a lighter weight yarn (sample 2). And the last is beaded feather stitch over perle 8. If I use that one I will have to dig out some perle 5, or I might try the beads over a yarn (sample 3). Leave comments and tell me which you like and why.
