Miniature Monday - the final room

Yes, I am afraid today will be the last post for Miniature Monday, as we come to the last room in the house - the den.
This is the room where the lady of the house comes to do her accounts, put the money in the safe, relax and do her knitting or some sewing on the treadle sewing machine, or read a book.
Here is her chair with her shawl over the arm (knitted on extremely tiny and thin knitting needles!) and her footstool which was a kit. The pattern on the footstool co-ordinates with the carpet, which was also a kit and took me about 3 months of stitching nearly every evening!
And here is the carpet in more detail.
This shows her bookcase with the books I made, the newspaper rack with newspaper printed off the internet and her sampler on the wall - one of the easiest bits of embroidery/tapestry that I did!
Here is her desk where she sits and does the accounts for the tea shop and writes her letters to her brother when he is overseas. I even have letters in the drawers!
And finally a shot of the sewing machine with some fabric left in it - she must have been interrupted half way through making something!

Thank you so much for joining me every Monday. I have really appreciated all your comments and have enjoyed sharing my miniatures with you.

Becky - that carpet is an absolute work of art!

I suppose all good things must come to an end sometime, but I have enjoyed every minute of Miniature Monday

Hi Becky ~ I have loved looking at your miniature pieces and studying all the fine details! I'm sad to know that this is the last one, but wondering if you'll be making more of them in the future... ;o)

Becky its gorgeous! The detail in it is wonderful. I remember my Mum having one of those old treadle sewing machines. Wish I knew what happened to it. Sorry this is the last Miniature Monday.
