Evalina Rose and her little sister Posy Anna are the main characters of a series of children's stories that I am writing. In this blog I will share the final stages of crafting their half scale house--Honeysuckle Cottage--and the miniature stuff that will make up the settings of their stories.

Violet's French Dress

I have not posted anything for a while, so I thought that I would show you Violet's new dress and her baby's bassinet. 
 I am not done with either, but I like to show things in progress.  I am going to add some more embroidery to the hem line and bodice of the dress.  The bassinet will get some flowers added to the rim and a pillow. 
 This project is growing in some interesting ways and I will share them in the future. 

I decided to join the Marie Antoinette craze.

I made the bassinet in the same manner as described in my Basket Tutorial. I made a special form to work on , and I am very happy with the results.

Have a great week,


  1. Lucy, her dress is Gorgeous!!! I Love the embroidery and Marie Antoinette wore some of my Favorite gowns! :)I am currently trying to make that style gown for my Lady Rat for the Tree House... I have not shown it yet....! Your baby and cradle are too tiny to be believed! I can't see how you knit so small!!! Some day I am going to try your method of hat making too! I look forward to seeing what is next!
