fairy hill house pincushion with pink and yellow flowers
Buttercup Dell is a lovely open space surrounded on three sides by ancient trees and on the fourth side by the river that meanders through the realm. Here, as it runs by the Dell, the river is wide and shallow. It's perfect for a summer evening paddle followed by an acorn cup of dew drop wine while perched on a boulder. In Winter the river freezes and the little folk who live here skate and slide and play.
This little fairy house is hill shaped with an embroidered leafy roof. The front door is round with flowers growing around it. There are little red and white mushrooms both on the front and on the side. On the back there is a meadow of yellow flowers. Perhaps these are used for making tea or salve or dried and displayed to preserved summer in a fairy made wooden bowl. In the base of these, I've added a piece of thick stabilizer to help keep the house steady. The little house is made from 100% wool felt and stuffed with premium polyfil. Each little felt shape is individually cut by hand and appliquéd in place. This pincushion measures 3.5inches across and stands 2inches tall. It is 2inches deep.
