Special offer on my dollhouse firescreen needlepoint kits until Sunday!

This is just a quick ‘heads up’ to let you know that all the firescreen kits on my dollhouse needlepoint kit website have 10% off until midnight on Sunday 5th November, but only when you use the coupon code FIRESCREEN10 at the checkout. That means that instead of the usual price of £20.95, they are just £18.85 GBP (about 25 USD) when you use the special code.

There are 21 firescreen designs to choose from, so there’s bound to be one that will enhance your doll’s house decor and make it look really special.

The firescreens kits contain 32 count silk gauze, which is easy to stitch on, as the holes in the fabric are clear to see, so the whole project won’t take too long.

The metal screen itself comes as a three-part kit which just needs gluing together and then painting with enamel hobby paint such as Humbrol. When finished, the firescreen stands just under three inches tall.

Here’s what you get in a dollhouse firescreen kit:

These kits would make great stocking filler gifts for anyone who loves doll’s houses (including yourself!).

So, visit the website now to choose your firescreen kit – and remember to use the code FIRESCREEN10 at the checkout to get your discount!

It’s National Needlepoint Day!

Today, 7th September, it’s National Needlepoint Day!

So, make the most of your stitching today, wherever you are doing it – try stitching in public, to let people know that needlepoint is a legitimate hobby, and how much fun it is!

I’ve tried most embroidery techniques over the years. In the eighties, I went through a phase of stitching only needlepoint – that lasted for several years, and I don’t have any of those pieces left now, as I tended to make things as gifts. Big scatter cushions, wallhangings, bellpulls – mostly from kits, but some were  my own designs.

I used to travel from my home in Essex by train into London, and visit The Needlewoman Shop on Regent Street to get my needlepoint supplies then, and struggle home again with huge bags of goodies! Such a pity that that shop has long since closed. I used to love it! They had an amazing range.

Obviously, I’m biased, as I sell *miniature* needlepoint kits, so everything I do for my business is small, but I have grown to love the mini versions of needlepoint more than the full-sized ones now.

Here’s a few examples of my dollhouse scale needlepoint, which can be bought as kits from my website:

 

Are you stitching any needlepoint at the moment? Do you only do cross stitch? Or surface embroidery? Or blackwork? Or does it depend on your mood as to what kind of project you want to stitch?

Let me know in the comments!

There’s a dollhouse scale Home Sweet Home kit review in this month’s DHMS magazine

If you love mini samplers, then you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a dollhouse scale Home Sweet Home kit review in this month’s DHMS magazine (Dolls House and Miniature Scene).

Home Sweet Home dollhouse sampler kit

Moi Ali, who regularly writes for DHMS, contacted me a while back and asked if she could ‘have a go’ at stitching my little miniature Home Sweet Home sampler kit, and she’d write a review of how the kit works out. Of course, I thought it was a great idea – see the September issue of DHMS (out this month, August 2017) to see how she got on! This is the one I stitched:

Home sweet home miniature sampler

The sampler is from my range of 12 sampler kits for doll’s houses – it’s a cute little design to be stitched on 32 count evenweave fabric with one strand of Anchor thread, in tent stitch (like half cross stitch – if you’ve only ever done cross stitch before, you’ll find this really easy). Each one measures 1.8 x 2.1 inches (4.5 x 5.5 cm) when framed. All materials are provided, including the wooden frame. Priced at £9.95, each kit will give you several evenings of stitching pleasure, and you’ll have a great little sampler to show for it at the end 🙂
