Stupid runny nose! It interferes with doing minis, among other things. I did get the gingerbread painted and put in place and the bottom on the bow tie stand.
You can see the gingerbread up under the porch roof. It turned out pretty good. I put a teak wood bead on the bottom of the bow tie display.
That's about all I did today. I forgot to tell you that I made the bow ties from 1/8" silk ribbon. Synthetics won't do. It's the glue factor again. I made the bows separately first by tying them around my fingers. It's little fiddly work but it turns out better bows that way. You can also tie them around pins placed in your pinboard. I used the ends that I cut off after tying for the neck part. I will try to do directions for both kinds of ties as soon as I am finished with all of the sneezing and blowing my nose. For now you will just have to be satisfied with this photo. Sorry about that.
See you tomorrow. Hopefully I will be back to normal, whatever that is........
