Navajo Table Rug/Carpet/Cover

Here is another project. I finished it in 2 days. It takes me 6-8 hours (yes, a whole working day...) to complete a 1" - 1 1/4" pillow on 40 count silk gauze. The design like you see today takes a little bit longer. Only 3 months left till Chicago International show and I have to push myself to work harder. Luckily for me, I enjoy stitching and love to see how a new project is opening. What I don't like to do it is to put the finished item together. Hopefully, it won't take me too long to put all these pillows together and show them to you as a package with the Navajo rug. I think about duplicating some of the Navajo pillows I've done already, so it might take a little bit longer to display the completed idea.

I decided to make something different and stitched a table rug in Navajo style. I used 40 count silk gauze, The Silk Mill, but inside area of the medallion was stitched with the Gloriana over dyed silk.


I still have some room left on the canvas.


Hmmm, what possibly else can I stitch here?

What do you think?

Наталья, ковер прекрасный получился! Уверена, на выставке ты будешь иметь успех! А на оставшесмя месте очень хорошо поместятся подушечки :)

Люда, подушечки, к сожалеию, по высоте не пройдут. Я думаю, может быть тапочки...

This settles it - you're stitching faster than the speed of light! I've always known that... it would take me 6-8 weeks to stitch something like that... or even 6-8 months (teehee). Great designs, all of them - and lovely colours.

P.S.: And please don't worry about Flutterby and me, we're still the best of friends... He thinks things would go faster if he'd give me a helping paw, but hell freezes over before I would allow him to get near to acrylic paint... ;O)
