BrightSea Village now has it’s own needlecraft shop, The Nifty Needle. I so wish there was a real Nifty Needle handy to where I live. I’d love to shop there. Also de Malmanche Demesne is ready to be rolled out on a dollhouse floor (or framed and hung). And because I’m still as eager to stitch as ever I’m already over a quarter of the way through stitching the next addition to BrightSea Village, the Lido cinema. That’s the back that I’ve stitched so far. I try to save the most exciting side to stitch last.
So close to finishing BrightSea Village’s Needlework shop when I ran out of one colour (just near needle in picture). (Doesn’t that always happen.) As soon as our lockdown restrictions loosened a little I ordered some online. Guess which colour was out of stock?
Good news. Put in another order last night and it appears to be available.
In the meantime I’ve started on the next mini carpet, de Malmanche Demesne. Loving these gorgeous colours.
Keep stitching and keep safe, people.
The fabric of my life has frayed a bit over the past few months but now I’m gathering the threads together again. (See what I did there?) Even my stitching got put aside for a while and the longer I left it the less inclined I felt to resume stitching. Yesterday I made myself pick up the needle and stitch, just for fifteen minutes I thought. Boom! The joy of stitching surged back through my veins. Now I’m keen as ever to stitch so I’m back to work on the BrightSea Village Needlecraft Shop and having fun.
I’m going well on the back wall. Two of the villagers are sitting out in the sun stitching, knitting and having a good old chat.
I’m not that keen on back stitching (is anyone?) so I make myself do one strand of it every fourth needle threading.
Bee-latedly, here I am, announcing the release of the Pyramajig #1 — Bee Happy. Hooray! (A pyramajig – my invention – is a nifty little container for holding all sorts of gifts or goodies. It’s shaped like a pyramid but opens up to a neat little box.)
But wait, there’s more! I’m also releasing Newton Abbot, my new miniature carpet.
I’m now working on the next instalment in the BrightSea Village collection. It’s about time the village got a needlecraft shop.
