Welcome to Quayside my town by the seaside!
WELCOME TO QUAYSIDE MY TOWN BY THE SEASIDE
Thank you for visiting my blog and thanks even more if you decide to follow :-) I really do enjoying doing it and love to share my projects with you all! In the village at last count I had 18 houses, 14 little roombox size shops, 3 half houses, and 1 half church (half being just a front!) there's also 1 quarter of a house (just half of a front lol) 2 market stalls, 3 market carts and beach huts on the beach although theres always seems to be room for just one more!
I also have a my 1st house a traditional Victorian manor which is very special as it was bought with money left to me by my beloved Nan. There's also my witches house and a witches shop. I also have a lovely Honeychurch house which is my Christmas shop and house and my latest venture a little vintage cottage. But the bulk of my property empire is Quayside, my little Cornish seaside village full of lovely individual cottages and all its wonderful residents. This has become a real labour of love and has turned me from a Dolls house fan into a complete and utter addict! The links below will take you to each of my houses and I especially hope you enjoy your visit to Quayside :-)

Knitting Pretty wool shop!
Of course the sign once again is made by Bethany what would I do without her talents!!! I think it needs another one under the window though now I can see the gap!
I have looked at it a few times but couldn't quite get the layout right. I had too many unit in there and by taking one out completely it worked much better!
On the mannequin is a nice winter woolly set although not sure it may need something a little longer and will look out for a pine mannequin as I don't like the white one it doesn't match lol!
I love the little boat jumper its so beautifully made and the little doll on the shelf is so sweet. All these were made by Deb I am so lucky having such a talented friend!
The large bookcase is perfect for the balls of wool, sadly not made by me I cheated and bought some on Ebay, but I will make some more to fill up the gaps on the shelf.
I printed a few posters out from Google images and a colour chart to make it a little easier for the customers.
I stained the shop counter and added the little crochet balls and cross stitch kit to the top shelf.
On the bottom shelf is a selection of pattern books I made including of course fisherman knits!
Of course Halloween is nearly upon us so a scary pumpkin jumper makes up the window display again by Deb lol she has another one on Ebay at the mo if you would like one the same!
I seemed to put loads of things in but in the photos it still seems a bit bare!! I think more wool and a few more bits and bobs will fill it up a bit more but at least the hard but funnest (if thats a word!) bit is done! I hope you like it :-)
