Just look at this tiny 1:12 scale exquisitely embroidered cushion!
It is the work of Sandi Quance (from Canada).
Sandi asked Liberty and I what we would like to see on a cushion and we suggested a few animals.
Sandi outdid herself with not one but three perfect tiny cushions!
The beautiful wicker chair came from Wendy Brown (of England).
Wendy asked if we could do a swap and she made the most beautiful wicker items.
This beautiful wicker chest is another of Wendy's creations. It fits so perfectly in the corner of the girls' bedroom it looks like it was made to go there!
The baskets all come out and are fully lined with gingham fabric.
Wendy made the blue chair and cot in half scale especially for Liberty and the tiny pink chair in quarter scale for me.
That little pink chair is only an inch high and just perfect!
Here's another one of Sandi's spectacular cushions in the country lounge.
This little bambi cushion is my favourite.
I've long wanted this bunny cushion for my real house.
It looks just perfect in the country kitchen.
The cushions are petit point embroidery - Sandi tells me she used 61 count silk gauze and silk threads - and the pictures really don't do them justice, each one is a masterpiece!
Thank you Wendy and Sandi (neither of whom have a blog!).
