Dollhouse Miniature NAVAJO BURNTWATER: 44,625 stitches were accomplished

WHAT A RELIEF! I've finished stitching my Navajo Burntwater rug today! 44,625 stitches!
I need to call it Burntbrain rug - this rug gave me a little bit of headache when it came to choosing the colors. I spent so far $100 on the silk thread (Gloriana silk is very expensive), trying to match the colors, but I think it was worth it. What do you think?

The rug was stitched on 40 count silk gauze, with Gloriana silk thread, 10 colors. It measures 4.5" x 6.5" (11 x 16 cm) and has 44,625 stitches. It took my one month to complete it.

More close-up pictures:

This is how the back side of the rug looks like:

I haven't blocked (stretched) the rug yet - that's why it still looks a little bit crooked, because there is still some silk gauze left that I can use probably for Navajo throw pillows. I will try to finish them this week and will let you know.

have a great day!

Best regards,

Came here specifically for something like this so that I will work on my stitching again :).

A beautiful piece , Natalia and I don't think there were too many colours at all. You have blended them really well.

The silk threads sound really expensive !
