WORK IN PROGRESS: AUBUSSON RUG IN 1/12TH SCALE

I try to manage stitching my Aubusson rug in 1/12th scale while working on Navajo pillows at the same time. I know I missed 2 Sundays for the updates, but I really went back to the Aubusson only a couple of days ago. Here is how it looks now:

More than that I pulled out my another rug and add a little bit of stitches to it each day as well. It is difficult to see the changes on this one, because I work on the white background. I can tell you that during last week I finished stitching the background in the right upper corner.

Both rugs are on 49 count silk gauze and it makes it harder, but I MUST finish them before April starts, I MUST, at least one, :(((

Amazing work as always! You have a great deal more patience than I do though I do think the idea of doing a little stitching on each each day is a very good one! You are an inspiration! Judith x

I have no doubt you will have finished them very soon, because you're also wellknown as Turbo-needle... ;O) Did I understand that right - are you stitching white on white? In my opinion this is some of the most boring things to do...

Greetings

Ha-ha-ha, Birgit, you are funny - Turbo Needle, thank you for my new nickname, :))). Anyway, thank you for your credits! I'll try my best! Actually white that you see on the picture is a piece of paper under the stitching for better viewing the design. The silk gauze looks like net and has off-white color, but again, you are correct: boring....

Elga, we are both in the same shoes, rushing, rushing, but it makes life more interesting, true? Do you agree how dramatically your life has changed since last year?

Judith, you are an inspiration for me too. I envy you with green that you have time to do embroidery in real size. I am planning to start my casket someday. Someday....
