shhhh it's a surprise



Here is my Club Little House swap gift for Sherry in New York. I don't think she's a visitor to my blog so I can put this picture here for my readers... if you promise not to tell!

I made the ironing board from a little kit. Then I gussied it up with the fabric and notions. The pincushion I made from a tiny red pom pom. I cut the pins and sharpened them. The little pattern? The layout instructions from a regular pattern. The tiny buttons are modeling clay and the little tape measure, iron, and thimble came from my local miniature shop. My dad lathed the spools for me. The scissors I had from years ago and used them because I couldn't find anything quite tiny and cute enough for this project.

I hope she likes it, I hope she really loves it!

Oh my Sasha, this is the most wonderful miniature I've seen yet! I like how you've kept it realistic and not cutesy. I love it...how could anyone not love it?
I'm so glad that you're feeling better!
