Dollhouse Miniature Pole Screen "Victorian Rose" 1/12 scale

Today I got the message from Barb Lewis who purchased a dollhouse miniature Pole Screen "Victorian Rose". I am very happy that she was pleased with the Pole Screen. The pole screen was made by Renaud Prefontaine from Canada from a wood called "cocobolo". It is from the family of rosewoods and harvested along the Pacific coast of Mexico and South America. A very dense and figured wood that barely floats. There is no finish on the pieces since cocobolo has a natural oil and is easily polished to a high gloss. I stitched the screen on 49 count silk gauze. This is what Barb wrote to me:

"Dear Natalia,

The needlework arrived today.

I DO love it.

I love the color combination.
Is the blue background also stitched?
The stand is lovely. Very nicely done.
I see what you mean about the finish.
The wood is fabulous!

My hat is off to you for those tiny stitches!

Keep doing what you love!


Barb Lewis~"
