Well chuffed!

What a lovely surprise and honour to be choosen as the winner for the mini challenge, such a boost and thank you to everyone who left such nice comments.

Today we went to Guadalest with our Miniatures club. This is a mountain top village, about an hours drive away, it is literally built on top of and into the rock, where some of the little shops have a wall of mountain as their back wall. It is very pictureque with far reaching views across to the sea and even our own mountain range behind us at home. There is a wonderful miniatures museum with houses and room boxes displaying every type of shop, home situation you can think of, with the third floor becoming a complete miniature village, again created within and around the mountain formation the village sits on. A little browsing, plus a little shopping and lunch and the day was very enjoyable.

I have not managed to finish anything else for the EBCC, but thought you may like to see a 1/12th scale miniature quilt I made for one of our miniature houses. This was created using foundation piecing and is all hand stitched. (DH made the bed) I have made several different quilts and soft furnishings including carpets, rugs, cushions, (1/12th scale nine patch gets a bit small!)
This wall hanging was created using folded flowers and applique with beaded tassels.
