Tiny Photos

It’s Friday already so it’s time for the Friday Photo Challenge organised by Postcard from Gibraltar. Today’s theme is tiny, so I looked back through my photos for little things…Blackbird by Nicola Jarvis

The seeding stitches on my blackbird are pretty tiny. I’ve stitched a little more on this one but not enough to show you yet!Needlepoint cat pillow

The stitches on this cat embroidery are seriously small, needlepoint over one thread, I made it about 25 years ago, I don’t think I would tackle it now!

This pincushion is pretty tiny, I made it several years ago, it was a pattern in Classic Inspirations magasine. It holds a thimble inside too.

Splendid Sampler Blocks so far!

These were some of the early Splendid Sampler blocks, some of the pieces were tiny, I used to drown them in spray starch to make them more controllable! There’s a new Splendid Sampler starting this week over on Pat Sloans website, it’s a great way to learn new techniques, I’m thinking of making one just from my scrap box. It’s the same format as before, one 6.5″ block each week, the main difference is that only the first twenty will be free, after that you need to buy the book. I’ll see how I feel when I get to twenty whether I just make a throw with what I’ve got or take the plunge and buy the book.

If you fancy seeing more tiny things, follow the link to Postcard from Gibraltar. In the meantime I’ll leave you with a picture of Zach trying to be tiny!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Those are certainly tiny! I’ve been thinking the same about the Splendid Round 2, but need to take a serious look at where at where I am before jumping in too. 😄

    I absolutely adore the pincushion – it’s just so exquisitely adorable! I have a very small pincushion collection, and I SOOOO (or sew) want this!
