Finished embroidery: tiny needlepoint in a gorgeous Regency doll’s house

Today, one of my customers, called Margaret, sent me these images of her beautiful doll’s house. She has made up several of my miniature needlepoint kits, and sent the photos to show me how great they look in situ in her house.

This first picture shows the design ‘Summer Roses’ featured on a teacosy, footstool, and tea tray cloth.

This second picture shows a ‘Sophie’ footstool, and a ‘Tabriz’ bellpull. The bellpull is a new design – only out a few weeks – so Margaret must obviously be a keen stitcher, to have finished it already!

This picture shows a bolster cushion, bellpull and footstool all using items from the ‘Judith’ range. I think I like this picture the best, as it’s such an elegant room.

All the stitching kits are in stock, and are available from my website.

Finished embroidery: a tiny bellpull and bolster cushion

‘Tabriz’ doll’s house scale bellpull and bolster cushion

This is my latest design, which I’ve done so far as a bellpull and a bolster cushion, on 32 count silk gauze. It’s called ‘Tabriz’. I’m also working on a carpet to co-ordinate with these, which will be for 18 count canvas, but that’s not quite ready yet 🙂

The bellpull is 4 1/2 inches long, and the bolster cushion is 1 1/2 inches long and 5/8 inches diameter. Both of them are stitched in needlepoint (like half cross stitch) using one strand of Anchor stranded cotton. The bellpull kits are £9.95 each, and the bolster cushion kits are £12.95 each.

Kits for each of them are available from my website  – for bellpulls look here, and for bolster cushions, look here. There are free online tutorials for each type of miniature needlepoint kit (and many others) – see here for details.
