Just a quick progress update on my "Louis Box" carpet.  Just the cream background to complete the outer border, then it is ready for blocking and finishing off.  While I'm busy with all the coloured threads for the roses on my needle, I have also started working on a few cushions to carry the rose theme through.  Just wait until I have finished dressing the bed - its way out!
I have also had time to continue playing with Fimo this weekend while the weather was more co-operative.  No photo's of my efforts in miniature baking as yet though.

I put aside the petite point for 1 day and joined Diane Yunnie who was hosting a workshop at her house on Saturday.  We dressed a Father Christmas and intended to make his pixie as well, which was a bit over ambitious! We had a lovely day - just wish we could get Di to have workshops more often!
Father Christmas is pictured here with a few toys from my stash .. I mean.. COLLECTION!
He is standing in front of a Christmas shop front I made several years ago.

I usually work on my petite point while sitting on my bed propped up by a mountain of pillows.  There is a down light directly above my head, so I can see properly.
Daisy is so determined to be part of the action, that she crawls onto my lap, under the embroidery frame and goes to sleep.  This is what I see when I put the frame aside and look down!

"Louis" room box carpet - progress photo
After the completion of the the Teddy Bear series, I leaped straight into making this carpet, while I still on a roll!
This pattern is the same as the turquoise blue one I made originally for Milady's bedroom, but this one is intended for a stand-alone room box I started some time ago.  The plain roombox was given to me by friends, Louis & Priscilla Kleintjens as a Christmas present some years ago and which I never completed - because it needed a carpet and I wasn't in the mood to make one!
Once complete, the roombox will be Narcissa Vane's boudoir, which is a reflection of her love of luxury and narcissistic personality.

More photo's soon....
