A Miniature Christmas Eve
Here is my miniature scene of Christmas Eve. I included a Sharpie as a reference for scale. (A few family photos seem to have snuck in too)
I embroidered a needlepoint cushion in very fine gauge.
I made the stockings too. On the ottoman is a letter to Santa who has just finished eating the apple, drinking milk and wiping his mouth.
I love the way the light inside the firelogs make them glow. The quarter on the mantlepiece is for scale.
Of course I had to include a violin and I've been dying to incorporate the parrot into a scene. This turned out to be the perfect place for many of the little bits and bobs and doodads I've collected at garage sales and consignment shops.
Thanks for looking!
