So far this week

 Ive been making a lot of books and thought Id make a bookcase its altered slightly but from the 1/12th scale wicker book. I like it and have decided I must make another wicker chair in white for this room.
 Ive made over a cot below is the original fabric . I like the yellow a lot more :)


 I Bought a tool for setting tiny eyelets ....its called a silent setter so hopefully the next corset I make will have the eyelets for lacing :)
 Heres a little something I found useful while weaving ...a toothpick holder , It held the thread nicely ,kept it clean and allowed me to take the project away with me for a few days.

  1. Oh wow!! I want to come and stay in that room with those books!! It looks gorgeous - and warm! :) Love the cot too, yes I agree looks much better in yellow - amazing what a few changes can do!

    Love how you think outside the square - never thought to use a toothpick holder for anything other than toothpicks LOL :) Always love seeing your progress!

    3 day weekend coming up - mini time!! :) xxxx
