I'm really loving these recap posts... also.. the Parasols rug is just to die for. I wish I can have something like that in 1:1!

Thanks! I just wanted something more user friendly for viewing past projects. I had the posts links on the sidebar, but my blogging platform doesn't show any photos with that...and everyone loves eye candy! :D

Yup, we all love eye candy. Perhaps I'll do some recap posts too, during the months I'm keeping the Spring Fling under wraps, it's a great idea. I love your needlework, I wish I had that kind of patience with needle and thread. I saw some nice work at the St. Louis miniature show that I drooled over, but the artist was selling kits only, not finished pieces, so I passed.

This post reminds me of the needlepoint rug my aunt made for my mother's dollhouse. My mom designed the house to be an 1830's Baltimore ship's captain's house and spent years decorating it. She would have loved to see this blog. Thanks!

Brae, I love your Macintosh dining room. Did you make the furniture?

Thanks, Penny! :D The furnishings were made for The Dolls House Emporium. They have been discontinued, but they still show up on eBay from time to time.
