I was rather optimistic to think that I could finish the gingerbread house by the end of the weekend. It's far larger than I had anticipated and it takes a lot of sweet things to cover it! I have been working non-stop on it for the last few days and I still have about ten to twelve sweets to go before I finish knitting - then the construction starts. It really will be a very desirable residence when it is complete.
Hopefully pictures in the next few days.
