Shabby Furniture

I just changed my earlier posts of the Romantic beds - I made them 'shabbier' I think they look better.

My Little Princess

This was a project I did a few years ago.  I intend to do one for each of my granddaughters (and one for me) but I have only done this one so far - so many other things on the go!
It was really enjoyable to do and after having an all male household for many years it was nice to do something girly.

This one has a bit more filigree than the previous one and guess what its PINK flowers!

 A closer image of flower
 Another in a different colour
and another plain shade given a bit of 'treatment' again lace made on my machine

Home Decor

Another love of mine is machine embroidery and in this photo I turned a plain shade into something a little bit more special.  The lace was all made on my machine and not bought by the meter.  The flower was made from a fine fabric and built up in layers.

This was my first finished piece from Tilda book Sew Pretty Homestyle. I made it from a curtain fabric remanent.  I went on then to make several Tilda Angels

and when I get chance I want to make a few cupcake angels from her latest book Tilda's Studio

Original Dollhouse Miniatures

this is my website that I set up a few months ago please pay a visit and let me know what you think of it

New to blogging

As I have no experience of blogging it may take a while for anything to remotely interest anybody appears here but I guess at least I have created one!
I look at a lot of other blogs and find their pages fascinating so I guess I hope that one day mine may appeal to others in the same way.
Watch this space then!
