Mini swap and other miscellany

I am a bit late in posting about this but better late then never as they say - grin- This is what I made for the Club Little house mini swap, I also enclosed a copy of the book The Dolls House and a few other odds and ends. The chair is a recovered dollar store purchase, the little bird bath is made from inverted mini wooden pots and a platter. I made the rug using punch needle embroidery -so addicting- and the framed quilt was a quick paper piece job. I had to of course include a basket of fabric scraps. I hope Laura found a home for everything!!





I was very excited to get mail, (thanks again Shar) such a rarity for me. Look what I got
my favorite is the sewing mannequin I have always wanted one of those!! I had to fight my sons for the little dogs I will have one for every floor in my house. She also sent some mini fabric, patters and a tiny scissors. How cute is the baby cradle? ( The rug, some may have called it a doily in its former life, and the chair I had.)

FINISHED

I finally finished the swing for my Aunts fairies to sit on, it took me for ever to figure out what to make for them!! I really like how this one turned out.

Your items for the swap are amazing. I was hoping that there would be a round 2. My doll house has like 5 items in it and is looking rather bare. I loved how you made the bird bath and the fairy is just lovely. Yesterday my daughter made a fairy house outside and said a fairy song asking for a crystal. Luckily we had one on hand and so when she work she found something left to her by the fairies.
