Antique Kazak rug in 1/12th scale - Week 6

Today is a day I show the progress of stitching the dollhouse miniature rug - a reproduction of an antique Kazak rug in 1/12th scale.

I worked on the outer border - filled up the background with beautiful Northern Lights color by Gloriana silk on the sides and I started developing the inner border as you can see on the image.

As for the Green Aubusson, there won't be any update today. The reason is that last week we had some business in Montana and I left a bag with all floss for that rug at the hotel. So, I need to go and buy new threads and then will continue working on it.

I wish you all had a great weekend and ready for a new week!

I can't believe it is August already. I've been waiting for this summer so much and even haven't noticed how fast it has come to the end. We had such a hot summer this year, the highest temperature we had was about 100F, sadly to say but no desire to go outside at all...

Trying to cool down a little bit with cold drinks I got a cold, how funny is that? So, last week I spent at home, no stitching, no working on minis, no exercising, but I had time to go through my cross stitch and miniatures stashes. I need to downsize big time...

I feel much better now and am back to blogging! :))))

I will start with my SUMMER 2012 GIVEAWAY.

The conditions are the same as always: leave your comment if you would like to participate in this giveaway and spread a word that more people will have a chance to join us.
