A miniature bedspread

Today's post bridges the gap between my twin passions of stitching and miniatures. The lace bedspread that I showed you a couple of weeks ago is now finished.

and here it is draped on the bed from the retreat.

I bought some 1/48th scale bookends from Petite Properties the other week and of course I couldn't resist making a start on them. Cute aren't they?

This is the front. The two houses are mirror images of each other. These are the first buildings of this scale that I've bought and I'm amazed at the amount of detail in the kits.

I also finished the roombox for the sewing room - all decorated too.

Last week I was in London and on the Sunday I went around the Brick Lane and Spitalfields markets with my son and daughter, and daughters boyfriend. Some of the buildings in the area are ultra-modern, whilst others take the term shabby-chic to a whole new level. I thought I'd share some of my photos with you as I feel some of these buildings are just crying out to be copied in miniature.

Yes, that really is the house number on the door - crazy!!

Just across the road is this one which looks a bit like a strong room but with those quirky little cut outs in the panel above.

The shutters stop people staring inside but still allow light into the room.


  1. Judith, I love your roombox for the sewing room. The lace bedspread is outstanding, beautiful color. Can't wait to hear what theme you will come up with for your bookends. Mini and stitching hugs, Natalia
