I made this little gingerbread house for my partner in the Seasons Hoopla swap last month. It took what felt like forever, and my fingertips were raw by the end of it, but I love the way it turned out! I tried a new stitch, the stem stitch and I'm hooked on it now!



I also added a crochet border. Now THAT was a trial for my patience.



I got the design from this Etsy shop:

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

So pretty and I'm very impressed with your crochet border.  I just don't seem to be able to crochet round a solid ring of any kind but it gives a lovely finishing touch.

Love it! I really like the pastel-y colors on the light brown fabric. It gives it a nice, soft feel.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
