When you love Christmas, and you love embroidery too, then it’s never too early to start on your Christmas stitching projects. As the nights start drawing in, what can be better than having a Christmassy project to keep you busy in the evenings?
During the summer, I’ve been working on designing these table runners and placemats with a Christmassy theme. These new miniature needlepoint kits for table runners and placemats for doll’s houses have now been added to my website today, so you can begin to make them in time for your festive dollhouse displays. They would also make wonderful Christmas presents for friends who have doll’s houses.
All the kits contain 32 count silk gauze, plenty of Anchor stranded cotton, and a suitable needle for you to stitch with. The designs are counted from a colour block chart (the design isn’t printed on the fabric), which is simple to use and easy on the eyes. Instructions on how to finish the kits are included, too. You may want to purchase some Fray Check fabric glue (also available on my website) to stabilise the edges of the gauze before you trim around it.
The long table runner kit costs £12.95 and measures 3 5/8 by one inch, the round table centre mat kit costs £8.95 and measures 1 3/8 inches diameter, and the kit for the set of four placemats costs £14.95 (each placemat measures 1 3/8 by one inch). All of them are available to purchase now.
There are tutorials on the website showing exactly how these kits are to be made up, and detailed images showing what each type of kit contains.
What do you think of these new designs?

It is a very beautiful set, Janet, brings Christmas spirit in our miniature world! Mini hugs, Natalia
That little vignette, with the runner on the hall table . . . is SO CUTE. And I hate squealing over cuteness, so you know you have really impressed me!
First time I visited your blog. I love Christmas and your work is so beautiful. I’m sending your blog address to a friend who loves miniature everything. Thanks for sharing with us.
