Gingerbread Tree

After the gingerbread trio I wanted to make some more gingerbreads, so I made this from the Just Cross Stitch issue July/August 2010. Its the Gingerbread Tree from Little House Needleworks. I didn't made it into a ornament but made a little pillow for in my basket on the table.
Fabric: 28 ct. tea dyed jobelan
Threads: Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe (Green A, Red C, Dark gold) and DMC (white and dark brown)

A few weeks ago I found in a Dutch quiltshop some gingerbread fabric and it was perfect for this little pillow.

While I'm busy with my stitching, Bowy is lying on my quilt sleeping, dreaming of a white christmas :-)
