Santa's Village #10

I am using every spare minute to get this finished.  One more chart on hand and I think the last one is on the way. This one is the "Gingerbread Emporium."  I think it's funny that the suggested thread has a slight variegation.  Makes the gingerbread men in front of the house look like they have burnt spots.  I would never burn my gingerbread men!

Nine weeks until Christmas!  This will get done.  Then I'm swearing off pattern-of-the-month projects.  (I hope...)

My dishwasher is dying.  Sometimes it decides to work, and sometimes it doesn't.  Days get so busy that sometimes it's just easier to wash everything by hand rather than try to trust it and restart it when it poops out.  With the amount of dishes we use, I need to run it every day.  According to the last repairman who came out, you're not supposed to run them that often.  Whoever decided that didn't have a family that cooked and ate real meals together. 

I haven't shopped for a dishwasher in many years.  I can't imagine what they cost.  *sigh*  I hate projects like this.  Any advice is welcome!

I am living without a dishwasher at the moment also. I hate it! At least it's just the two of us - and Hubs will help with them occasionally. The only advice I can give you is do NOT get one with the silverware holder built into the door. My last one had that and the back sides of the silverware never got clean.

Sorry I can't be more helpful. Paper plates??? :)

It's getting exciting as I watch your progress. I have baked ginger bread men a few times, but they usually end up with an amputee in their midst, so I tend not to make them.

We had to replace our stove last month and that wasn't fun. A hydro surge blew the electronics and we couldn't buy that part any more. We basically bought the same stove and it's working great now.
