There’s a thing doing the rounds on Facebook at the moment, called the Five Day Art Challenge. Artisans are nominated to present three photos of their work on their blog for 5 consecutive days, nominating another artisan on each day.
A fellow miniaturist, Sandra Morris, of Tower House Dolls nominated me, so here goes with my contribution…….
I started my business, Janet Granger Designs, in 1996, after writing a book, published by the Guild of Master Craftsmen, called ‘Miniature Needlepoint Carpets’ (now out of print). The 25 designs that were featured in that book made up the first kits that I decided to produce – now, 19 years later, I reckon I have designed over 400 miniature items altogether!
Here is the cover of the book:
And here are two of the most popular mini carpet designs from it – these are still available as full kits, to be stitched on 18 count canvas with Appletons crewel wool, from my online shop.
I now nominate Julie Campbell to showcase her beautiful little dolls.
