Libby - Dollhouse Miniature Doll

I planned to finish the rug with Hunting scene over the weekend and actually I am very close to do it - only have of background left to be filled up.

Suddenly, I decided to change the point of my interest and put all my attention towards the dollhouse miniature doll Libby (pattern/kit by Dana Barton).

I made Libby's dress in green. I feel like a special finishing touch is still missing (may be it is a little red flower on her bodice, or a pearl necklace on her neck, or yellow sunflowers in the basket...). It was a great pleasure and fun working on her.

She looks very innocent and fragile for me.

I wanted to make a bobbin lace shawl but at the last moment changed my mind and used Carrickmacross lace - a type of needle lace the tutorial of which I am planning to post on my blog somewhere in summer.

Basket was cut on scroll saw by me, the leads are working.

Still can't figure out what happened to blogger and why I can't navigate the uploading of the images.
Anybody experiences the same problem?

Happy Easter!

Dollhouse Miniature "WELCOME" Punchneedle Rug

I always liked punchneedle rugs in miniature and finally decided to make one myself.

It took me a couple of hours in between of work at the office, housework, picking the kids up from the schools and cooking to finish it.

It was fast (can't even compare with petite point, lol...), easy and comfortable to work on this little rug, but... I didn't like the thickness of the finished piece and decided to shave it...

It didn't help to get rid of the feeling of over scaled rug but gave nicer touch to it and the pile of the rug looks more like it was knotted.

Anyway, what do you think, is the illusion of scale better than actual scale perfection.

Have a great weekend,
