A Little Woven House
This tiny little woven house is only 3 inches by 2 inches, excluding the frame. It was all lonely in a charity shop so I had to give it a new home. It is years since I bought it. It now has its own special place in my sewing corner.
So often beautiful pieces of needlework end up in charity shops Whoever made this little house knew exactly what she was doing. All the warp threads are wound securely over a tiny piece of board, and the weft threads must have been woven in and out with a darning needle. The little wooden frame completes the picture to perfection, and I love it.
