Dollhouse Miniature Petit Point Izmir Carpet

It is those last stitches that are always mundane, but a new project to start excites me a lot.

It is a whole ritual that takes a couple of hours for me: to prepare and frame a piece of silk gauze, to print out a pattern, to cut the silk floss.

This weekend I've started a new project, a commissioned miniature rug Izmir. This is a reproduction of an antique rug, 18th century.

I use 48 count silk gauze, Gloriana over dyed silk floss. The approximate size of the finished rug is 3" x 4". The updates on the stitching progress will be posted each Sunday. Here is update # 1

What are you working on?

Beautiful colors. I can't wait to see the entire design.

Not working on a rug as delicate and beautiful as yours... but I comfort myself with the thought that you're Mrs. Turbo-Needle and I'm not... ;O) Happy stitching - the motif is awesome.
