Dollhouse Miniature Heriz Serapi rug in 1/12 scale is completed. It took me 378 total hours to finish the rug.
Heriz Serapi in 1/12 scale available for sale at my Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/listing/156678571/dollhouse-miniature-rug-heriz-serapi-112?
I want to say a BIG THANK to all of you who read my updating posts on the stitching process and left comments. Your support and nice words motivated me a lot and let me finish the rug in a short time of period (it could took more months actually). I appreciate all your time and all your private messages! Thank you very much!
Just to remind you, Heriz Serapi is stitched on 40 count silk gauze with fine Gloriana silk. It measures 5 3/4" x 8 1/4.
I've been thinking how to sign he rug. Since the edges are finished delicately and without any access of silk gauze, there is no way I can sign there. I decided to leave my initials in the top right corner NF (that stays for Natalia Frank). may be next time I will find better way to immortalize my name in my work.
And here are more pictures to enjoy. Please, don't forget to click on them to enlarge the image.

If you find the price of the rug is something that you can't afford at this moment, you always can stitch it by yourself and make it one of a kind by choosing different silk to work with. The design of this rug is available in pattern or kit at my new website www.dollhouseneedlepoint.com but it is absolutely different story, I mean a website, :)))
Have a great week!

Little update on my stitching Dollhouse Miniature KAZAK Area Rug in 1/12th scale. I am almost done with the main border and at the same time trying to work on the bottom of the rug. Don't forget it is 49 count silk gauze and the process of stitching is slowing down: I want my stitches to lay down smoothly and even, no knots, no tails behind, :)))))

I thought I would share the picture of the Dollhouse Miniature Firescreen in 1/12th scale. This is a reproduction of "Le Chiffre D'Armour" by Fragonard in miniature.
The stitched design measures 1 1/2" x 2". I charted and petite pointed the firescreen on 60 count silk gauze with the Silk Mill silk using 38 colors total.
The chart can be purchased by request.

The furniture for my Spring Fling 2013 project arrived.
Just one glimpse on it and you will tell it is outrageous! I love it!
I ordered these fabulous pieces from PRD Miniatures (www.prdminiatures.com)
These 2 unusual chairs are constructed of corrugated cardboard the Ayche (pronounced "H" like the letter).
Chairs have sleek modern lines with white acrylic detailing on the sides.
These chairs and the table are versatile but truly you don't have any idea where I am going to use them!!!
The Vortex End Table is constructed of pressed paper fibers in a natural finish with a Plexiglas cover shaped top and is only 1.5" tall.
The design is truly a marvel of interlaced pieces that is sure to be a statement piece. The Vortex End Table is designed and built by Aaron Taylor.
This marvelous simple looking coach is another masterpiece I am proud to have in my collection.
Lovely color, true? This left-arm piece is called Uno sofa and is finished in a blue tweed fabric.
I also got a little surprise with my order: a book with the Audrey's cover! I was a little bit surprised because she is one of my favorite actresses.
All together it lookes just like I wanted!
Are you having an idea what I am building? He-he-he....

While the dollhouse miniature Heriz Serapi rug is hanging on the blocking board I picked up another project that has to be finished as fast as possible - dollhouse miniature Kazak rug in 1/12th scale. Last time you saw this rug was last February and it looked like this:
Just want to remind that I am stitching it on 49 count silk gauze with Gloriana over dyed silk. The finished rug will measure approx. 6.5" x 8.5".
My goal is to finish the main border this week and start working on the inner border. I hope to accomplish this task. It is very, I mean, very hot here and I don't have any desire to spend any time outside, the heat makes me disabled.
Are you staying cool?
