Veg Out on Halloween

I've been making some dollhouse miniature vegetables recently. It's kind of the opposite of Halloween I suppose! Didn't even make any pumpkins. Oh well.

Oreo o'clock

I've finally made some more miniature oreos! They'd been out of stock for ages in my Etsy shop, but no longer. Get them while they're fresh (metaphorically).

Blue Hexagons

I am still obsessed with hand sewing small hexagons together. So I made a cushion. The front is entirely hand sewn using the English paper piecing technique, of which I am a fan!
I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out:

I went through my fabric stash and made this from several blues.
The backing is an envelope opening in gingham,
because I always seem to have loads of blue gingham for some unknown reason.

24th Scale for sale

I've decided to put a couple of 24th scale (half inch scale) dollhouse miniatures in my Etsy shop, which is a departure from my usual 12th scale (one inch scale) format.

Here is my 24th scale tea set. It's so teeny, this was a real trial to photograph.
I've made a pan of tomato soup and a pan of vegetable stew. I really like the tiny little details in the onion and carrot slices.

I also made this chocolate cake originally thinking it would be 24th scale, however I think it turned out a little large for that. So I'm selling it as a small 12th scale chocolate cake, but if you 24th scale dolls have particularly large appetites, I think it would just about fit in!

Never too early for gving thanks

I was featured in a Thanksgiving miniature treasury. I'm not 100% sure when Thanksgiving is off the top of my head (I'm British!) but it strikes me as a little early. But who cares, when the miniatures are this cute? Go and check out all the beautiful miniatures (I especially love those tiny cornucopias), clicking on the image will send you to the treasury. And thanks for including one of mine!

Finish up your fruit and veg

These fruit and vegetable magnets are the last ones I ever made and are now in my Etsy shop. I might make some more one day, but I don't plan to just yet. They are very cute, and hopefully might remind you to eat some more greens!

Breakfast (in bed would be nice)

Time for a breakfast miniature. Who wouldn't love to be brought a waffle with fruit, cream and syrup in the morning? I didn't discover the joy of the waffle iron until I was in my mid twenties and visiting the USA. And what a joy it was!
Close up fruit - om nom nom!
