Christmas wishes to all my blog readers!!

I’d like to wish all my blog readers a very happy Christmas, filled with lots of stitchy goodies (and chocolate)!

I hope you all manage to find some time for yourselves among all the mayhem – women generally tend to get a raw deal over Christmas, while making the festive season great for everyone else – so, take some time out, and do whatever makes you happy  🙂

I’m really grateful for all those of you who have followed my blog, especially those of you who comment on my posts, as I love to have conversations with you and find out what you think!!

This year has not been the easiest for me, due to the ill-health of my husband, and some personal difficulties – but I am looking forward to the New Year, when I’ve got some really good things planned for the blog, including the wonderful Carolyn Pearce Strawberry Fayre etui stitch-along, which will hopefully start in January 2018.

Have a great Christmas!

It’s Christmas in the dollhouse!

Here’s a short slideshow I made this week, showing some dollhouse scenes with Christmas-themed miniature needlepoint from my range of kits, to get you in the mood for the festive season:

These are great fun to stitch (they are far easier to make than they look!). If you can cross stitch, you can make these  🙂   …and they make great Christmas gifts, too.

The carpets are to be stitched on 18 count canvas, and the smaller items have either 32 count evenweave fabric, or 32 or 40 count silk gauze, depending on the type of kit, so there is something for every ability level.

Have a look at  my website to see the full range of over 280 kits for 1:12 dollhouses, and choose something cute and small to stitch!

Competition finalist: a Christmas scene

This picture of a room setting was entered in my competition to see who has the most beautiful doll’s house, and reached the finals. It’s just gorgeous isn’t it? It’s created by one of my customers called Marlene, who lives in the USA. She has used a limited colour palette of burgundy and gold to make this evocative Christmas scene.

The picture above is actually just one end of a large room setting. There’s lots of wonderful miniatures in this room!

The competition rules required every picture to show at least four pieces of miniature needlepoint, stitched from my kits. So, in this room, from the left, are: A ‘Candle’ Christmas stocking hanging on the fireplace, a ‘Sarah’ carpet, a ‘Summer Roses’ teacosy on the tea table at the back, a ‘Summer Roses’ footstool on the floor at the front, and finally a ‘Summer Roses’ cushion on the sofa.

They all add the personal touch to this wonderful room.
