Finished for Friday: Needlework Shoppe

This is the needlework shop from a series of Christmas village buildings available from Mill Hill. I had so much fun making this.  I might need to make a few more of the buildings.  They certainly take up less space and cost less than the big ceramic village I have.  Do you have a Christmas village?

I just put the frame over it for the picture, I need to put it all together - I do see the object under the frame in the lower left.  Didn't notice it when I took the picture.

This gives an idea of the hundreds of beads that went into it.  A bit time-consuming!

What have you been up to this week?  I hope you've checked things off your list.  Come and share so we can all cheer you on.

You do such amazing work.

I have 40 yds of burlap sitting in my workroom waiting for me to turn them into burlap sacks for a boy scout event. Yet another example of how opening one's mouth and admitting one can sew is a bad idea.

Alas, not only not finished for Friday, but not even started.

I can see how this one would be fun to work on - it has a great wintery/dickensian feel about it.
