The pattern is from crochet today nov/dec issue. The pattern is simple enough, but the candy canes were tricky for me , and my white glue wasnt helping me any:D . i ended up stitching them down . there are some more gum drops that i need to stick, but patience really is not my forte :D it looks much nicer than in the picture . took me around two days to finish it.

thanks for looking

merry christmas, everyone :)

So adorable !!! What a great idea!! Now instead of having to buy a kit and make one out of the "sticky stuff" and gingerbread, yours is all ready to display.
This looks like a project I will start during 2010 so it is completed by next year.
Great job and thanks for sharing.
