Miniature Quilts

Recently I finished a miniature quilt that I called "Red Barn - My little American Dream". A real red barn inspired me to make this quilt. I used to drive a country road where I saw that barn first time. It was for sale for more than a year, and I regret I never took a picture of it, because one day it was finally sold. The new owners turned that little charming red barn into an ugly brown rectangular house with small square windows. It is so interesting how we all look at the same things differently...

Anyway, I continue to make little miniature Christmas quilts and finished these 2 quilt tops with a Christmas tree.

My Santa is definitely love it!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Dollhouse Miniature Petit Point Rug VERA - Stitching Progress

It is a weekly update on stitching progress of a dollhouse miniature petit point rug VERA (Faith) to hoonor my mom. I use 49 count silk gauze, Gutermann silk (4 colors). It took me from 5 to 7 hours each day during a week to finish the field of the rug. Now I can start working on the borders.

In spite of the fact that I enjoy a lot working on this rug, I need a little break from it, because of the colors, and I must finish some other projects this month as well. So, I hope the progress won't suffer too much.

Have a wonderful week!

Dollhouse Miniature Petit Point Rug VERA - Stitching Progress

My first post in the new 2016 year will be an update on a stitching progress of one of my UFO projects - a dollhouse miniature rug VERA (Faith) to honor my mom. As a reminder, I use 49 count silk gauze and Gutermann silk (only 4 colors).

I started the main border (white lace) and moved on the field of the rug (black lace). I still have to fill up the left low corner with white silk (it is hard to see on the picture, but that area hasn't been stitched yet). Back to work!
