Jo’s Sweet Shop

This miniature needlepoint rug called ‘Janine’ was stitched by Jo L, and she’s used it in her cute 1:12 scale dollhouse sweet shop. I think it looks just fabulous! The shades of the rug go so well with the stripes of the wallpaper.

I started with one of your little footstools, then a cushion, and this is my third piece. I’m quite pleased with the results. It’s just perfect for the miniature sweet shop which I recently completed.”

I’d agree with that – it does look just lovely in this miniature sweet shop!
