Gingerbread Lane

"Christmas on Gingerbread Lane"
Do you remember when I rediscovered Cross Stitch after a looong break and
I signed up for these two projects back here?

... and I mentioned that I was very tempted to sign up for another :o)

Well I did :o)
I was trying to be very good and finish the lace border on the 12 Days of Christmas

but, yes there is a but and it is my excuse, 
I could not resist any longer with all the updates appearing over on Instagram so I caved!

So glade I did because I am really loving this one too. 
There were also people doing "daily progress shots" which I thought
was a great idea to help keep the motivation there.

So this is what I've been up to for the last few days.

My day 4 Progress shot might have to wait a few days now as this little Ballerina had her second last ballet lesson on Monday with next week being a dress up day before the big concert on Saturday night so I need to get moving on making her a Dress Up costume. 

Wish me luck, it has to be circus themed.
I'm thinking a "Circus Performer", bright colours, crazy hair.
