Visiting Bessie May's Quilt Supplies

Quilting being another hobby of mine made it an easy pick for my shop dollshouse.
The name comes from my grandmother Bessie May who passed away in 1971. She enjoyed sewing, quilting and embroidering for most of her life.

The shop has 2 floors and an attic bedroom and toilett.
The 1st or ground floor contains the shop with quilting supplies galore, office corner and a quilt on frame.

The 2nd floor is the sitting room with black accessories & kitchen nook. The black is a little out of my comfort zone, but I had to try it as the sofa pattern included black. The copper stovehood is the result of a course I taught at the Craft Retreat one year. Copper & metal work is a favorite technique I often use in my multimedia and scrapbooking projects.

The miniature water colour on wall by the stove is an original by A.Midttun.

The attic bedroom has a blue colour theme and is enjoyed as a chilling out place for a football interested girl.

This catching up with the missing year of blogging will take some time.
