I made a leaf yesterday. A stumpwork leaf of detached buttonhole. It's not perfect but it is good enough.
I have to finish putting in the veins and then I'll have to see what's next. I don't even know. I'm up to Lesson 10 so that's pretty far. Here are my pieces.
Several days ago I made some gingerbread dough. I kept it in the refrigerator for 2 days. Then yesterday I molded it using some new and some old molds.
I spent two days looking for the elusive St. George and the Dragon mold that I have. I finally found it. The molded cookies have to sit for 24 hours before you cook them.
So they are still sitting. I think they will turn out! Thank you Ladies Repository Museum blog for all your directions. I tried making molded cookies many years ago with very limited success. I really like this new method as it is not a marathon of work. Make the dough, stick it in the fridge for 2 days. Mold the cookies, let them sit. It will be quick and easy to bake them for 15 minutes after dinner. I may make these next year for gifts..
DH forgot to give me one of my gifts. It was so funny. I got to thinking a gift that I ordered was missing. So I asked DH about it and he found it in his closet. He forgot to put it under the tree. So I got to open one more present yesterday.
It is still warm enough to walk outside. Unbelievable but very nice.
