If you look at the details of any of the decorations on the Embroidery Library site there will be a link to the project instructions (which you can see without buying anything). 

This is the link to the project instructions for one of the gingerbread house decorations.  They vary greatly in how complicated they are!!

Well I can't not like that!  Seriously, though, that is really nice.  I got mine from myfabrics.co.uk but this year they only have plain and children's designs.

Yes!  I made one three years ago - thread here.  I like it very much, and it was very easy to make, particularly as I used softshell, which doesn't need any seam neatening!

Last year I made a hood from another pattern which attaches to it with buttons, and at some point I am going to sew up the inseam pockets and replace them with patch pockets (if I have enogh fabric left) because I find the position of them a bit awkward for walking along with my hands in my pockets.

@Catllar The First Minister for Wales says that the virus is far more likely to be transmitted when people are socialising (probably true), which is why universities are expected to continue with face to face teaching (with masks, distancing etc).  However, he didn't explain why offices, shops and other businesses have to close for 17 days.   :facepalm:

I do have some sympathy with the various leaders who don't really know what to do but are terrified of being the one who allows the virus to take greater hold, but there's no excuse for inconsistency.   -<

I'm sitting here waiting for the toddlers to arrive.  I have prodded and poked things to make sure as little as possible is available to tiny hands, but I know they will find things I hadn't even considered.

See you later, although I may not be able to string two words together.   :scream:
