A customer’s cat wants to check out the new minis!

If you own a cat, this image will not look unusual – as soon as you start doing minis, your cat needs to come and see what you are doing! A customer sent me this cute pic of her cat Emma, checking out the miniature needlepoint cat sampler she (the customer!) had just made from one of my kits.

If you’d like to stitch one of these, they are quick to make, to be stitched in needlepoint on 32 count evenweave fabric. All materials are included in the kit, including the wooden frame, and they cost 12.95 GBP each.

Miniature dollhouse scale needlepoint by my talented customers!

My customers sometimes send me images of the miniature dollhouse scale needlepoint that they’ve made from my kits, and I always love to see them, as I’m amazed by the talent and ingenuity of people to incorporate the kit designs into their own dollhouses.

Here’s a few examples of images that I’ve recently been sent:

This first one is of the ‘Judith’ rug, sent to me by Helen. She has created this amazing room to feature the rug in. The rug itself is stitched on 18 count canvas with Appletons crewel wool, and measures 9 x 7 inches.

Helen also stitched this Strawberry Thief chair seat design – this is an Arts and Crafts design (i.e. from the late 1800’s). It’s available as a full kit with woodwork to make a chair (in a different design to this one – this chair is one of Helen’s own), or as just the materials to make the chair seat, if you already have your own woodwork. The stitching is done with one strand of Anchor stranded cotton floss, on 32 count silk gauze.

This is a little sampler called ‘Hearts and Flowers’. The kit itself was won by Sarah S., on my Facebook Chat Group page, and when she had stitched the kit up, she posted the image of her completed sampler. It’s stitched with one strand of Anchor stranded cotton floss on 32 count evenweave fabric. The wooden frame is included in the kit.

This pretty round rug called ‘Bella’ is shown in a nursery with some wonderful little dolls and teddies. The rug measures six inches diameter, and is stitched on 18 count canvas with one strand of Appletons crewel wool.

Hasn’t it come out great? It’s stitched on 18 count canvas. Once stitched, it is glued on to an interlining backing, so that the interlining shows a little around the edges of the stitching, to resemble the ‘skin’.

Christmas gift ideas for mini-stitchers (whether that’s you, or a friend!)

It’s coming round to the time of year when maybe you could do with some Christmas gift ideas for mini-stitchers  – if you love to stitch for your dollhouse, or know someone else who does, then here’s some suggestions from my range of dollhouse needlepoint kits.

How about a matching Pole screen and Firescreen set, like these two (‘Spring Flowers’ and ‘Summer Roses’), below? Each kit is available separately, but together they really add something special. Both are to be stitched on silk gauze – the Firescreen kits (on 32 count gauze) are £21.95 each, and the Pole screen kits (some on 40 and some on 32 count gauze, depending on the design) are £20.95 each. Both types of kit contain everything you need, including the metal frame kit or wooden pole kit.

Sampler kits make good stocking fillers, at only £10.95. There are 12 designs to choose from, on 28 or 32 count evenweave, and each kit already contains the wooden frame, as well as all other materials.

Teacosy kits (on 32 count silk gauze, at  £14.95), Tray cloth kits (on 32 count silk gauze, at £12.95) and Cushion kits (on 22 count canvas, at £5.95) make great stocking fillers!

For a gift for a more experienced stitcher, this Needlework stand kit on 40 count silk gauze (£21.95) would be good – there are six designs to choose from. This one is called ‘Larkspur and Roses’.

And then for little stocking stuffer gifts, there are these lovely magnetic needle minders! Perfect little gifts for stitchers, even if they don’t have a dollhouse to stitch for – because who wants to lose their needle? These little accessories will help keep needles safe, while looking gorgeous alongside your stitching. £4.95 each.
