I never had a doll's house. After skimming through this wonderful book, I wish I had. There are wonderful designs here.
Each design has both a full color chart and a black and white chart. The colors key works for both.
The book takes you from the very beginning, the basics of simple needlepoint all the way to the finished item. It also has ideas about things to do and ways to decorate your doll house.
I believe this book is associated with Doll's House Magazine. If the magazine is anything near as good as this book is, it should be great.
The chapters include:
Basic Guide: very comprehensive
Take 1 Cat, The Entrance Hall
All at Sea, The Bathroom
Teddy Bear's Picnic< the Nursery
And So To Bed, the Bedroom
Dinner is Served, the Dining Room
Here Be Dragons, the Library
A Bouquet of Roses, the Drawing Room
Some of the chapters have more then 1 design, all have lots of ideas for adaptations.
This is a brand new book, first published in 2000 by The Guild of Master Craftsmen Publications in Lewes, West Sussex, England. Needlepoint 1/12 Scale is a large glossy paperbound book with 116 pages. This is the 2001 re-print.
