AIM Members News 2012 ~ Miniature Home by Melissa Boling



Itching for Spring?
If you're itching for warmer weather, how about doing some spring stitching?  The crocus pillow above is the newest addition to Melissa's website and coordinates with the hollyhock pillow.  Both cushions are done on 40 count silk gauze and are designed for DMC cotton floss.
The "Birds and Blossoms" cushion is the spring cushion from her Four Seasons Series.  The Four Seasons cushions are done on 48 count gauze and each has a plaid border, and an optional stitched plaid back.  (If you live in the southern hemisphere, and are tired of the hot weather, you might like to try the autumn pillow in this series.)
There are many other projects on the website, such as a peony rug if you're looking for more spring flowers, a cheery yellow tea cozy suitable for a 1950s kitchen and much more....
Why not take a look at  http://www.miniaturehome.com/  and start your spring stitching!
