The quilt was the first item started and finished - of course! Featuring a vintage bear fabric in the Bear Paw block.
A closer look
My husband spent a few days in the shop constructing a Mission style bed which we then finished with a natural stain and several coats of polyurethane. As always, he built it sturdy enough to withstand its probable occasional use as a step-stool by either birthday girl or her little brother. While he was reorganizing the shop he also found a prototype stand built probably 10 or 15 years ago, voila a night stand!
Next, we needed some accessories! Can you tell I'm having fun with this?! Since our Abby is a dog lover, of course dolly needs a little dog with his own basket bed complete with cushion. And, the bed needed a mattress, sheets, a pillow and pillowcase.
I've spent the last day rummaging around the house for other miniature accessories and some vintage linens are being pressed into action as well.
Love that tiny picture frame!
How about a bedside throw rug?
The ensemble as of today
One more small finish - an anticlimax really - the two Dresden plate Christmas placemats are done and now put away along with the runner, awaiting their turn to shine next next holiday season. Hurray for small finishes!
