DIY Play kitchen part 2

Do you remember my play kitchen post from october 2012? It was my first play kitchen made for my son from an old night stand. I have recently found a pair of old night stands really great to make some play kitchens. I wanted to make one for my goddaughter's christmas and I thought I could make the other one for sale. Here is the result.

This one is featured in my "cuckooclocks shop". For the fabric, I have been inspired by Amy from Nana Company (one of my favorite blog) and I have chosen a Tanya Whelan print. My goddaughter's kitchen is not finished yet, I want to add a small oven and I will put a red fabric from the Lecien's Azalea flower sugar line. I recommend Marie-Madeline studio shop, they have a lovely selection of fabrics.
The great thing with this kind of night stand is that the feet are easily removable (screws), so I can make a package small enough for a reasonable shipping price. And I love the retro style of the small "columns".  The original brown night stand was quite ugly, but it makes a perfectly cute kitchen, isn't it?

My son plays every single day with his kitchen. He has tested and approved this one too! He told me that he wants to keep the yellow one and to own a blue one like this too! Maybe I should look for a bigger house...

Cuckoo Clocks

Oh, I forgot to tell you, if you like embroidery, just have a look to my other Etsy shop (The Cuckoo Clocks) that I opened recently. I have also put some other stuff like baby toys, etc. I hope to be able to add a lot of more patterns by the end of the year. So many ideas and so few time!!!
.....Ok, I give you a glimpse:

Squirrel BOM

The October BOM is here! It's my favourite of the quilt. Isn't it cute?
I will probably sew several of this lovely block for Christmas gifts...
I think I will have to design a badger and a raccoon too, so my woodland animals team would be more complete. Any other ideas?
