A Really Small “Small”

My friend Jane asked me to make a pillow/sofa cushion for her doll house.  She gave me a few examples so I could make them the right size.

I’m sure she wanted something simple, but my thoughts raced and I went a wee bit mad as I considered the possibilities.  Hmmm…I could get more detail if I stitched over one…what about shape?  Could I really make a biscornu that small?

This is Summer Flowers Biscornu designed by Samplerbird Stitchery.   The design is available free of charge on the “All About Smalls” Facebook group.  I stitched on 40 count white linen with DMC 368, 720 and 823.  I still need to stitch the back and attempt the finishing.  Yikes!  But fun!

You may have noticed that my old blog posts from Blogger are here.  Monique pointed me in the right direction, and voila!  I am super happy to have them here in WordPress land.  In related news I am going to try to use the blog reader here in WordPress as well.  I was using Feed Demon and it ate my entire list.  I am crushed, but doing my best to recreate and improve it.  I am hopeful!

    Those are adorable finishes! What a good friend you are to help furnish your friend’s doll house! If a rug is on your to-do list, I have some patterns you might be interested in . . . 🙂
