Ginny & Ginger

Here’s my latest offering, which I can show as it has now been received by Wendy. 'Pumpkin Wendy' as we’ll affectionately call her!!!!! (See previous post). And of course, it's rag dolls!!

The idea for these cute Gingerbreads came ages ago after seeing something similar elsewhere on the internet, and I knew that one day I would have to make them!
This is Ginny!

And this Ginger!

Wendy adores Gingerbread men, and she has been feeling a bit low lately, so I thought a pair of Gingers would cheer her up and they appear to have done the trick!!

The candy canes were another ‘must do’ and they seem to go quite well with gingerbread men ...... although the ‘mica’ glitter sprinkled on them seems to be everywhere I look now; the floor, my worktable, me – I’ll probably still be seeing it at Easter!!!

Long tiring day at work anyhow, so be seeing ya later!!

Bye for now!

Julia, they are fabulous and I bet Wendy loves them to bits. I have been lucky and received my pumpkin babies also but have to do my post about them yet. They look fabulous amongst the "Rooster" family in my kitchen window.

Hi Julia,

I've only recently discovered your fun blog and I just have to tell you how much I enjoy reading your posts. I had to write today to tell you how much I love your cute gingerbread people!!! And the candy canes are the icing on the cake! They're FAB!!! I'm a terrible seamstress, but you have motivated me to give the candy canes a try! Wish me luck on the curvy part!!! Thanks for the fun!

Hi Sheri,

Don't know whether or not you have a blog, but I can't find a link back to you! Thank you for your kind words and good luck with the candy canes - the curvy part isn't too bad, just take it slowly!!

Hi Julia,

I don't have a post at the moment. Really I'm very good at starting projects and then I hit a snag and stop...But I really do like the candy canes. And the gingers are so cute! You're really talented at putting colors and patterns together. Maybe I can start out slowly with the candy canes!!!!

OH MY GOODNESS!!! They are just wonderful. I so need (I mean REALLY need) one of your dolls. You make them so beautifully and I seem to fall in love with every single one of them.

Okay off to stitch now and less blog looking and wanting!
Lots of Love
