It has been a long time since I last posted on my blog, mainly because I have been looking over various projects in order to discover one that would peak my interest for some time. Like most miniaturists, I have a number of houses and shops in boxes, waiting for attention, but choosing the right one is not always easy. I have been using up some of the time working on various accessory items and also working on a new rug which is done with French knots. I thought I might post a few of the needlework pieces in the hope that one or another might spark a bit of interest for those looking for interesting accessory ideas for their houses. I hope to complete the French knot rug that I mentioned above. At the moment I am on the time taker part of the rug, the filling in part around the major pattern design. I have also added a few other pictures of needlework ideas which can add much to the dollhouse decor. Perhaps when I have finished with the latest rug, I will have decided on which shop or house has peaked my interest. Now for a few pictures. One of the rugs is a bunka rug done by Debbe Bloom (the second picture) who does the best bunka rugs that I have ever seen. Then there is a French knot rug, a crocheted afghan, some cross stitch pillows and chair seats and finally, the rug I am currently working up. All of these projects are fun to make and can add another dmension to your accessories.
