Santa's Little Helpers & our Gingerbread House

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas.  We had a wonderful and relaxing day and a lovely Christmas lunch with my family.  The kids and I made a gingerbread house to have Christmas day which was lots of fun to make and eat too!  This has become a bit of a tradition for us to make a gingerbread house and I was very proud of both my kids as they made most of it themselves this year. 

We have tried a few different recipes over the years and this one I think was the best one yet.  It was from
(Here is the link for you
It made enough dough to make the complete house and was easy to make and roll, and cut out the shapes.  It also tasted great too.  The kids loved making this and it's always lots of fun sticking it together with the icing and adding lots of lollies too.  They also loved being able to smash it down on Christmas day with everyone when it was time to eat it! 
I made 'Santa's little Helper's' for my mum this year, as she has said she would love me to make them for her.  So here they are - Alfie & Evie - Santa's Little Helpers
She loved them and they looked very cute sitting on top of her wood heater on Christmas day. 
Enjoy your Boxing Day and I'll be back soon to share a roundup of all my sewing creations for 2013.
Happy Sewing!

Teacher's Christmas Gifts

Every year I like to make a special homemade gift for the kid's teachers.  So this year I made two of the 'Santa's goodie bags' by Gail Pan Designs

These were cute little stitchery bags which we then filled with goodies for the teachers.  I also made one of the 'Jumbleberry Santa's' by Simone Gooding.  This was a fun project to do.

I love making these Christmas projects each year - it just get's me into the Christmas holiday mood.  Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, I hope you have a lovely day with family, friends and loved ones.   
Happy Sewing!
