In My Kitchen Sink

First I’m going to show you my progress on my next mini carpet, Heath Lodge, and then I’m going to horrify some of you.

Okay now, those of you who are sensitive about how finished work is treated: look away now.

This is how I wash my finished carpets. I swish them around in the kitchen sink with a squirt of dish soap and warm water. (Uh oh. Someone didn’t look away and I can hear the screaming now.) Seriously, this is how I wash them. After a good rinse I squeeze them out, pull them into shape and iron them dry. If you follow my recommended stitching method they’ll stand up to a fair amount of tugging around.

Progress On Next Mini Carpet

I loved Robillard Ramble (my last mini carpet) so much that I couldn’t resist following it with another confection of flowers and pastels – blue this time. Here’s the first two weeks’ progress on Heath Lodge.

A Quick Tease

BrightSea Village’s Carousel is now in the final stages of the “post production” phase, but I thought I’d give the miniature carpet lovers among you something to look forward to.

I’m already a week into stitching the next carpet. It’s called Heath Lodge and is similar in style to the recently released Robillard Ramble. Once I’ve made a bit more progress I’ll show you how it’s going. For now, here’s a peek at the colours I’m using.

Happy stitching, all.

Presenting Robillard Ramble

I’m quite amazed at how quickly I stitched Robillard Ramble. It took me a little over a month and the stitching was very enjoyable.

I’m already well into my next project, a new Extra for BrightSea Village. I’ll post progress photos soon. For now here’s a clue to puzzle over: It’s something that moves but stays in the same place.

Week By Week

Stitching has been going amazingly quickly (for me) on Robillard Ramble. Forget modesty – I am totally smitten with this design. I think it’s one of my best ever.
