Work in Progress: Antique Kazak Rug, 18th c., 1/12th scale

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!!!!


Best wishes,

Natalia

Did you buy up everything from that store? :)

I really like your ruler. Did Little Natalia do that?

Your stitches are so neat!!

Yap, little Natalia rules in this house!
I don't like to buy silk thread for my rugs on-line. I need to see and feel the colors. It was only one local needlework store that carried Gloriana silk (love it!). Next nearest store is 5-6 hours of driving, lol....

Natalia, you deserve a medal for just taking on this project. Not only for crafting these wonderful rugs as for using the best material you can find.
The end results are always gorgeous.
Hugs, Drora
