When I ran a competition during this past summer to see who had the most beautiful doll’s house room, Cinzia, who lives in Italy, sent me this picture of a really pretty boudoir. I was so impressed, that Cinzia eventually became a runner-up in the competition, which asked for images containing at least four pieces of miniature needlepoint, stitched from my designs.
My doll’s house needlepoint customers never cease to amaze me. Cinzia has created this fantastic room herself, and made all of the needlepoint items from miniature needlepoint kits of mine.
I felt that the pictures of her pink bedroom room that she sent me were really lovely – such beautiful colours. I love the way she incorporated the miniature needlepoint into the room. The lighting is good, as is the arrangement of the furniture, and the limited colour palette, which helps pull it all together, as well. And the little dog is so cute……
Here’s a close-up of the little girl doll, lying on a ‘Lilian (pink)‘ Aubusson style carpet, along with a round ‘Lilian’ footstool, and surrounded by little cushions that are only 1 1/4 inches square, in real life (available as kits here). I adore the cat lying next to her, doing what cats do!
I don’t know what breed of dog this is (Shih tzu?), but he’s very cute! I’m sure he isn’t supposed to be under the bed, anyway.
There are dozens more inspirational pictures like these on my website in the Customers’ Stitching section. Wonderful inspiration for those of you looking for ideas for your next mini-project, but also a good way to while away a few minutes when you fancy some mini-sized eye-candy.
