Hanging Baskets

I'm running a competition with my 12Th scale Dolls house hanging basket kits at the moment. It's a great little kit to make up using the card templates, Jute and wire hangers which I personally make up for each kit. It has very clear step by step instructions & there is even a bag of soil to fill the baskets with for that realistic look. Each kit has two different shaped baskets.

Once you have made these little baskets up you will want to make more they are so much fun to do.

The best bit is filling the baskets with your chosen flowers & fauna. These can be your own from paper punch cut outs or tiny silk flowers or dried flowers. There are of course some lovely flower kits out there too! ...perhaps you might want to put something else in the up to you

To enter the competition you just make up the kit, fill and take pictures send me the pictures with the unique entry number supplied with each kit. I'm looking for nice pictures to promote the kit and they may be used on the kit pack. You have 2 basket & 2 chances to win !!

The prize ~ A hand embroidered commissioned miniature picture ~ winners choice!

Second prize is £20 voucher towards any Boxoftrix miniature purchase.

See the links at the side for where to buy the kit.
Pictures to be submitted by 31st August so theres still lots of time!
I hope you will join in the fun...........

Heart Pin

This is a little heart pin I made and have added to Etsy. These are a bit fiddly but fun to make and a great way of using up those little bits of silk and precious fabric. It also gives me the perfect excuse to get my bead box out and have fun!!! :o)

Three Little Ones

Thee little miniature embroideries, Goldwork Flower, Bullion Knot Roses & Satin stitch Poppy.
These measure only 1 & 1/4 inches across.
It was fun to do these little ones again! I hope you enjoy them.

This is the second frame I have made for this. I like things to look right and sometimes when you make something it looks right.... then you take a photograph and it doesn't look so was too big ..... so it was back to the ruler, mitre and saw. I'm happy with this frame now. I feel that white best shows the colours in the embroidery.

A Little Monet

This is my latest little miniature embroidery, today I will be making a frame for it. The picture is one of Monet's beautiful paintings ' Les-Coquelicots Environs-dArgenteuil' or 'Poppies near Argenteuil' I love the colours in this piece, I lost count of how many I used!
This little piece is up for auction on ebay.
