Here are the two 1:12 scale samplers I've been working on: the one of the right is done and the other is almost there!
The one of the left is Nancy Sturgeon's early 18th century Adam and Eve sampler from Annelle Ferguson's great book, Traditional needlework in miniature. The one of the right is from Pamela Warner's excellent Miniature embroidery for the Georgian dolls' house.
I want to get them done so I can block them and frame them, along with the Annelle Ferguson I stitched earlier this year. It's sampler mania!
And I also want to get on to my next stitching project: the Lucy Iducovich Persian rug from Ferguson's book.
This blog chronicles the adventures of a group of Canadians building a 1:12 scale medieval or Tudor dolls' house or dolls' castle. We're also working on a William and Mary era dollhouse circa 1700, featuring Jacobean, Carolean and Queen Anne furniture. Dollhouse aficionados, those who enjoy making or sharing doll house miniatures, and people who enjoy sharing crafts with children may enjoy the adventures of this group.
I built the background image of this site using some of the fabulous work from Vintage Retro Grunge. The "Green Man" reproduction medieval tile on the bottom right is by Kate Tiler. The other two, the griffon and the happy little creature (possibly a lion with a bagel?), are both by Pataki Tiles.
