WHAT A RELIEF! I've finished stitching my Navajo Burntwater rug today! 44,625 stitches!
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.

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!
