The is the nursery with the dreaded knitted doll. The needles were so small that that the stitches kept slipping off. I must have had about 5 or 6 tries at it before making my mind up to actually finish it before going on to something else.
There is a knitted christening gown resting on the side of the cot. This was made on large needles and was much easier to handle.
The finials for the curtains were made from butterfly shaped beads 'borrowed' from my daughter's bead box.
The bedroom is another favourite room - the carpet and bedcover are cross stitched. I have also made the curtains but I am having some problem with fabric glue showing through the material.
The perfume bottles on the dressing table are made from beads. although these are not too clear in the photograph.
This is my doll's house. It's not an expensive one - I wanted to see how good I was at it first. I may upgrade later on. I've been working on it for about 2 years now.
I have cross stiched all the carpets, rugs and bed covers. I have also hand knit the little rag doll - what a nightmare that was!
