Gingerbread, aprons and an extra hour

Happy Gingerbread
It is a glorious Melbourne autumn Sunday, (crisp morning, very sunny day-but not too hot) and we have been enjoying the delicious treats above.

Rory and I went to a birthday party yesterday, and have another to visit late this afternoon. While we were gone yesterday, the girls and Luke made gingerbread, but Rory was home in time to enjoy decorating them too. The ones above are the Happy Gingerbread People. Those below are the Angry ones….

We have been taking advantage of the “extra hour” today, after the clock switched from Daylight Savings Time overnight, doing lots of odd jobs around the house. I have been washing our windows after the amazing windstorm that we had during the week – Much of Melbourne was without power and some people still are, so a bit of dust is no big deal.

As the birthday parties are now here (I am sure you are not peeking Debbie, just an hour before the party) I can show you the sewing I have been doing – 2 Piratical Aprons!

It was somewhat of a struggle to get Rory to agree to model one for me, but he gave in eventually.

So, we are off to a party shortly – I had better get out of my cleaning windows gear – but I will leave you with a laugh. Here are the Sad Gingerbread People. Mr Gingerbread was devastated to discover that his wife had been attacked by an enormous “little” girl, who could not wait to try……..

  1. Ooh the apron looks great! What gorgeous fabric – where did you find the map fabric! I love that your husband made gingerbread with the girls – lucky girls! And your photos of the gingerbread people are very cute. 🙂
