"Sugar Plum Fairy" Stocking Update

I was surprised at how quickly I was able to finish the bottom of the stocking (well almost finished). In the second picture (the close up of the bottom) you will notice that the Gingerbread Boy is missing. I had him almost finished and set him down so I could get a cup of coffee, when I got back to my chair he was gone. I have searched and searched for me but so far he hasn't turned up. I think he may have run away to Skrek's swamp to join his cousin Gingie. I think I have enough of scrap felt from the kit to make another one but will wait to see if he turns up.

I now have 71 of 109 pieces done and will start on the "Fairy" now. Will be a while before the next update so stay tuned.

How funny the Ginger Bread Boy ran away! LOL. Perhaps he went to the kitches to get a cup of coffee too!
I hope he turns up, your stocking looks wonderful.

The stocking is looking fantastic. Could the Gingerbread Boy have hitched a ride on your pants? I get up for a drink and loose my needle and thread sometimes and later find them hanging onto the butt of my pants, lol! Can't wait to see the Fairy...

You sure he isn't looking up your skirt? LOL

I was thinking maybe he stuck to your clothes and wound up in the kitchen with your coffee. Hope you find him.
