Today I visited the closing needlework store in the area and bought Gloriana silk for my new project - reproduction in 1/12th scale of the Antique Kazak rug, the end of the 18th century.
Here you can see a little progress
It took me 3 hours to stitch this tiny strip of 4 rows in red, each row has 317 stitches, total 1268 stitches.
125532 stitches to go!!!!
