Where the Wild Things Dance ....

Once upon a time Nana Bubz started to sew....


 ... and sew....

 .... and sew....

... and in and out of days and nights ....

... and through the weeks.....


... until she came to a place with the gingies played ....


... and they rolled their funny eyes....


.... and wiggled their jiggly buttons....


... they danced in circles ....


... and danced in lines....


... and laughed and giggled ....


... until Nana Bubz wanted to share the fun ... so she shoved them in envelopes.....

.... and now they are going in and out of postboxes and over the seas and into other people's homes.....

..... where I hope they will bring smiles, and laughs and a bit of dancing.....

Thanks to Elsie Marley for the free pattern and tutorial... found HERE

I just love them and have been wanting to make some for ages

they just appeal to my warped sense of humour

Thanks to Narelle for hosting 1 Christmas Item a month 

Apologies to Maurice Sendak who wrote the original and much loved by me, my children and my grandchildren - Where the Wild Things Are


Righto... Gotto Go.... some wild things to do???? .....


PS... thank you for so many comments regarding my stupid effort at removing the oven door... my hands are healing so well ... I am sort of back to normal activities

... but I really still can't do dirty dishes..

.. I think that may be a long term effect...

..  such a shame.....

sooo cute! I love the bite marks out of their heads ;-) happy to hear you are on the mend too - I would hold off doing dirty dishes for a while longer too - just to be safe ;-)

WoolenSails said...

Those are so fun, love them.
I am the queen of doing dumb things and always hurting myself. My doc always says I should sit and not move,lol.

Sheila said...

Your little gingerbread men are adorable , what a cute pattern that is .I think my granddaughters might get a kick out of those . Too bad about the dishes ;-)
hugs Sheila

Susan said...

Glad you are healing - and yes it is such a shame about the dirty dishes - it took me a while to work out why they were missing part of their leg - maybe I am still asleep...

Susan said...

PS my girls enjoyed "Where the Wild Things are" too.

Sharon - Lilabelle Lane said...

They are so cute. hugs

Mistea said...

Cute ginger men and all those little bites were calorie free!

Dirty dishes are dangerous to injured hands and must be avoided.

enjoy all the wild things in your creative space.

Michelle Ridgway said...

Very cute gingies....are you responsible for their missing bits????

Jennifer said...

They are cute wild gingies! No, in your place I wouldn't be doing dishes either.

Marilyn said...

From all the little peeks we got they looked like they would be cute, but not that darn cute. They are gorgeous.
Definitely a lasting effect of hurt hands is nooooo washing up. For simply ages !!!!
Hugs

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

you are a very cleaver Nanna Bubz....take care

Susan said...

Poor little gingerbread men.......I'm sure they will bring lots of Christmas cheer with them. I am an expert in wine bottle first aid!

marina said...

they are gorgeous gingies!
I have seen them on another blog and they tickled my funny bone.
Reminds me of the gingerbread man in Shrek- 'not the gum drop buttons....'
No dirty dishes hey? I think I might check out my oven and see if it has an Elvis attachment..

Narelle said...

Ooops! Looks like someone has already sampled your gingies :)
They're so adorable!

Karen said...

Delightful ginger breads! Lovely idea for gifts and fun, too.
Yes, those hands need to really heal properly before dishes can be done. Maybe the New Year?

Jane Galley said...

Oh, Fiona, these are so cute, I always eat the legs first, lol.
I think washing up duty is off limits until at least the end of the first week of the New Year

Elyte said...

I would have become very attached to those cute little fellows. As long as they have gone to good homes.

Charlie and Wendy said...

Your gingies are so cute, we always loved the Wild Things story too. I agree, such a shame about the dishes, Wendy xx

Janet said...

The gingerbread men are very cute! I would think that you wouldn't be able to vacuum or make the bed either with that terrible injury to your hands... :)

Sunnybec said...

You are sooo funny, love the bites out of the gingerbread men! Have saved the pattern for next year. Hugs

Annette Schultz said...

cute cookies... that's my kind of baking :)
And as for the dishes and that dishwater I think at least no dishes until the new year.... sew that you are all healed up ;)
have a great weekend
in stitches

Queen Of The Armchair aka Dzintra Stitcheries said...

Great post Nana Bubz Rugz ! Glad to hear your hands are healing well although I do agree that it will take awhile to be able to do those dishes! Meanwhile just do a little mouth to mouth at dinner time!

Cheryl said...

They are so very cute your gingies

Jindi's Cottage said...

Oh my they are so darn cute...and they certainly sound like they had a whole lot of fun at their goodbye party...
Oh the dirty dishes injury definitely sounds to me like it will take a long time to resolve...best you do stitching therapy for a good few months before you even attempt that activity again...

Anonymous said...

Fairy Floss Stitches said...

Nicky said...

Love, love, love those gingies, SO cute!! I think it's time I took a CPR refresher course....... might do some practice tonight .......

Kathy said...

Aha! You are the 'baker' of these well-travelled gingerbread men - I have spotted them all over blogland lately :)
