I sent a few out to lovely bloggers... and thought it would be nice to share the photos here. I hope that's ok everyone!
knitxcore in the USA
kestrel finds and makes in Scotland
a gingerbread man at Bert's brothers house.... in England
allotment2kitchen in Scotland
lucewoman in Wales
do a bit in Australia
My friend Nicola in England
and Arabella's tree in Wales...
and this is the one that inspired them all...
this gingerbread man is in the collections (not on display) in St Fagans:National History Museum where I work. This little man is from around 1912... and is still looking in tip top condition. The person who made this gingerbread man may have been doing so for magical reasons - you could create a doll in the image of someone (poor person who looks like this!) and then if you ate the doll you would absorb all the power of the person.
if anyone else has any gingerbread men pictures for me let me know!
