I named this Dollhouse Miniature Needlepoint Pattern VERA to honor my Mom. Translating from Russian into English "Vera" means "Faith".
I started working on this pattern 4 years ago. I charted some borders and corners of the rug. Being impatient by nature, I wanted to see how this rug would look like stitched on silk gauze. I started stitching it.
During last 4 years I kept working on it periodically adding stitch here and there without any inspiration to finish the pattern. This is how my rug looked like last time I touched it in November 2014.
One Saturday at the end of March I picked up the hoop with the framed rug on it and... I knew exactly what to do. It took me about 5 hours to finish charting the pattern: the main border and the field. 5 hours! I've been waiting for that inspirational moment for 4 years!
There are 243 x 421 stitches, Gutermann silk
The rug measures
4.96" x 8.59" if to stitch on 49 count silk gauze
6.08" x 10.53" if to stitch on 40 count silk gauze
