New Furniture, Mini Afghan Blanket, and 2012

My new 1/24 scale furniture for my Fairfield I got from my mom and my sister for Christmas! They're perfect and I love them so very much!

 The Dining set.

I want to reupholster the chairs since I don't like the fabric. I'm going to take a bold step forward and reupholster them with some needlepoint fabric, which means I gotta learn how to do it first! It will be #3 on my new years resolution list for 2012: learn how to needlepoint. This is going to be interesting ;-)

 The white bed set.

The bed set goes very well with this room. This room may be my favorite; very shabby chic! I even crochet a 1/2 scale afghan blanket to go with the bed!

Used a continuous granny square pattern. Super easy!

Since 2012 has approached, I want to take a moment to look back at 2011. It was a great and a fast year for me. It was the year when my obsession with miniatures started, the year when I finished building my first dollhouse, and the year when I learned how to crochet.  It's also the year I started this blog, so it's definitely a special year to me. I know there is going to be many challenges ahead, but I'm looking forward to the year 2012!

Wishing everyone's year 2012 to be filled with good health and success! Thank you for following and reading my blog!

  3. @Coffeeaddict & mariaireland: thanks loves!

  4. I taught myself crochet, knitting and needlepoint at the same time. I don't know what got into me. But a couple years ago I just had this craving to try it all. You will love needlepoint. The absolutely most fun sampler is here:
    I don't always have to much time and this one square at a time is so much fun. Happy New Year! Wishing you all the best in 2012!
