a little house finished...

Here's the first one (of the latest that is!)...

...based on a little Breton cottage...

...with it's lace curtains (antique French lace found on the market in Mirepoix last year) and blue door.




...a close-up shows the hand-stitching a bit better....



....not sure about the roof though...

...I'm working a few sample pieces with tiles and other bits....

Love the brickwork and the door and the window and see what you mean about the tiles ..... just a little heavy? It's a lovely series of work!!

...I think "all-over" tiles are better.....

..and yes, the ones here are too heavy.

I'll keep at it though :-)

(Thanks Shelley)

Love this house (especially its window which looks like a lace curtain). May I step through the door for a vist?

It's a beauty. Is it stuffed with something soft or as a paperweight?
