Going Boss Eyed.

It's been a while since I've shown anything I'm working on craft wise. Rest assured though I have been plugging away at this little project [little being the operative word] for several weeks. There have been times when I could have happily thrown it out of the window, such is the level of frustration I've had with it, but I am quite steely really and once I set my mind to completing something I tend to see it through. I know how pleased with myself I will be once it's finished, but in all honesty it may well be a one off!



If you are wondering about why I'm using magnifiers this kit is 40 stitches to the inch and my eyesight is much less sharp than it was once upon a time. I can't even see to thread a normal needle without my glasses these days let alone this small. It's a bell pull for my dollshouse and is one of the beautiful kits designed by Nicola Mascall http://www.nicolamascallminiatures.co.uk/ I've had to write all the rows out one by one so that I don't go wrong and limit myself to only a few minutes stitching at a time. N'er mind I'm slowly getting there. I've just popped up another photo to give you an idea of the scale I'm trying to work to.


It will come as no great surprise to any fellow stitchers out there in blogland to hear that I've already got my next project lined up and ready to go!

    1. Indeed. I won't embarrass myself by admitting just how long it took me to pluck up the courage to even start it!

  2. Very impressive, can we see your dollshouse please? I did some miniature knitting years ago but it was very difficult and I gave the book away!

    1. I will do so promise. However, it needs a jolly good dust first.
