A Different Kind of Gingerbread House

The Victoria Sampler
Gingerbread Stitching House is the most original cross stitch project I have seen in awhile! I absolutely love this gingerbread house that is a stitcher's box, pincushion, needle keep and scissors keep all in one. The chimney serves as the pincushion while the underside of the roof hides the needle and scissors keeps. A matching biscornu and scissors fob completes the set.
