Dollhouse Project

Well, I've finished another room on my dollhouse...the kitchen this time. The picture quality isn't the best - I did about four pictures with my camera set on "auto" and four more with it on close up, and this was the best one! LOL


Here's the whole picture as it stands right now. It's pretty big - I took the picture on top of a folding TV tray, and it pretty much covers the whole top of it. It's a magazine pattern from an issue of Cross Stitch Gold - I think it was in 2008, but I don't remember what month. It's my "big" travel project. I stitch on it at lunch time at work, or if I'm somewhere stitching that I have a table I can use - it's too big otherwise! I really like the colors - kind of a combo of pastels and bolder colors. Lots of backstitching still to do after I'm done with the regular stitching.

Great work!!! I love this design!! I've tried finding the magazine a few times, but never can seem to get my hands on one. Since I never got the dollhouse I wnated a little girl, I thought this would make up for it LOL

Hi Kathy - The dollhouse is just coming along beautifully!!
Can you let me know the specific magazine issue for this pattern, please? I have a bunch of CSG from 2008, but I don't remember seeing this pattern before. If I don't have the mag, I definitely want to get it!
You can send me an email at seeford at yahoo dot com.
Thanks in advance!

Shelley said...

Awesome progress. I love how you are doing one room at a time. Kinda like a remodel, lol! I didn't realize how big this piece is. You'll be ready to move in soon!

Kathy,
Your doll's house is exquisite!! LOVE IT!! I get great start on mine, and slowed to nothing with my hands full with Max and Miprezious.
This latest update has truly inspired me once again. Some one mentioned also it was almost like remodeling your own home and that made if for me. I had a moment of complete insanity and just started "demolishing" my main bath, foyer, hallways and living room!! I will hopefully have many hours once every one knows what they are to do that I also can do my own renewed spirit of finishing this Victorian Doll's House and the 12-14 others in my WIPS!!
I can not believe how you have inspired on so many that you have choosen long before me!! And, I have to again thank you for your gracious help in helping me along with my own projects!! Can not wait to see what you start next!!
You are a great and wonderful person!!
Love and Hugs!!
Deborah
