Return to Gingerbread

This was the Friday Sketchers 1st anniversary!  It was one year ago that we had our first Friday outing.  There were five who attended that one and we thought about informally calling ourselves the "Friday Five".  But that didn't last long as more Seattle Urban Sketchers were able to come out on Fridays.  About half way through the year we finalized our ad hoc outings to the 2nd and 4th Fridays.
Today's anniversary sketch outing took us back to where it began. Seattle Urban Sketchers adhoc Friday Sketchers' outing today was back to the Gingerbread Village at the Sheraton, which benefits the JDRF.    From the web page:
"The spirit of the season comes alive in amazing gingerbread displays created by Seattle’s top architecture firms and the Sheraton’s culinary team.  The theme is “There's a Rhyme and a Reason this Holiday Season.” 
 
I decided to sketch the Jack and the Beanstalk  (Created by Callison; Chef Lee Baldyga) but focused on the Seattle scene below the beanstalk.  There were goldfish crackers in the Sound!





Next I drew a detail of Hickory Dickory Dock  (Created byu Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties and Gelotte Hommas Architecture;  Chef: Jay Sardeson).  I like small rodents, so I focused on the mouse choir.



We shared our sketches



There were 10 of us today but Natalie is missing from the final photo.  :(
