When an idea of stitching a miniature Kazak rug popped up in my head, the main goal was to concentrate on the border and make it as detailed as possible, and leave the center of the rug plain, actually, fill it up with an over dyed silk floss imitating an abrash that you can see in antique rugs. When I finished working on the border of the Kazak rug and reached the point of moving onto the center, a reasonable question raised in my head: Do I really want to spend/waste time monotonously filling up the field of the rug that measures almost 4" x 6"? No. NO! So, I came up with the design for the middle of the rug and started working on it. Here is a picture of stitching progress:
After a couple of days of working on it I realized I was running out of 2 colors. Our only one local needlework store was closed last year (it hurts me a lot), so I used E-bay to purchase Gloriana silk floss to finish my rug. While I am waiting for the silk floss to arrive, I decided to work on another project, but later about it...
Happy 1st of October!
