Author: Виктория, April 23, 2015 в Miniature Needlepoint

A small progress on a petit point rug designed by Nicola Mascall. One page is almost done (and I have 15 more!)

Carving and needlepoint

Author: Виктория, March 18, 2015 в Furniture, Miniature Needlepoint, WIP

I finished marquetry panels and started carving central door ornaments.  Last time I made my own pear plywood – and what was I thinking? Especially with boxwood veneer I had. This time I decided to use boxwood. And I love it! It’s such a great wood, no excuses .  I hope to finish carving tomorrow and then I’ll stain it and glue to the door. I’m quite happy with the details I’ve got now, hope that result will be even better.

As for something different – I got this beautiful pattern from  Nicola Mascall , when I saw it on Facebook I fell in love with this carpet, the colors are magnificent! I promised to myself earlier that I’d never do needlework again, I wanted to work on my bobbin lace mats, but with my baby girl it is quite difficult, she love the bobbins too much. I guess I’ll wait till she grows up a bit. Besides, this beautiful carpet, OMG! I couldn’t help myself!  This is my first time stitching with Madeira, quite happy about the result and the back is not bad either! :)

Petit point for pillow

Author: Виктория, January 14, 2015 в Miniature Needlepoint

My current petit point project – miniature pillow.  This time it is 49 count silk gauze. I was going to use it for a bed, but I changed the colors so I’ll have to use it for something else.

Petit point

Author: Виктория, October 16, 2014 в Miniature Needlepoint

I caught a cold, so last week was out. I only managed to finish one item in Solidworks, pretty happy about it.

Among other good things – finished petit point “something”. I have no idea what I’d make with it, pillow or something for furniture, I started stitching another thing so later we’ll see and decide.

It’s 72 count silk gauze, Russian silk.

Holidays.

Author: Виктория, January 10, 2014 в Furniture, Miniature Needlepoint, WIP

We had  very long holidays as usual. I wish I’ve done more, but what can you do. I made two wonderful fringes on bobbin lace, painted them, then realised I needed one more!

At the moment I’m working on a second chair, the seat upholstery is done, now it’s back of the chair I’m working on.

 

WIP - another chair

40 nails used, I think another 40 will go too.

Textile for roombox

Author: Виктория, December 2, 2013 в Miniature Needlepoint

I’m working on a textile for roombox. I need to make a fringe, so I thought of bobbin lace.

I found a silk thread, pretty close in color to the silk I used  for a chair, but then decided to add yellow to make it look lighter. Looks much better now.

Roombox. The Rug.

Author: Виктория, November 28, 2013 в Commissions, Miniature Needlepoint, Roombox

Another portion of the photos – this time about the rug. I’m not an expert in petit point, so when I started working on a project I decided that the rug should be commissioned to someone who’s the best at petit point. It was very important because even the back of the rug should have been perfect. And of course I was looking for someone who could chart the rug, find just the right colors, add the right mood to the whole picture. I immediately thought of  Natalia Frank, I had no doubts she would do it perfectly. Natalia made several posts about this amazing rug – here, here, and here and here.

But I should add some personal thoughts about it – to see such beauty on the monitor is absolutely nothing, you should see it yourself, touch it, feel it, admire it. Natalia is a genius, I was blown away by all the details. The colors – perfect, just what I was looking for. We were all worried about the result, because we all have different monitors, so it was hard to say, how it was going to be, but here we are.

Petit point

Author: Виктория, June 21, 2013 в Miniature Needlepoint

Almost forgot about one thing – petitpoint!:)

I made this bunch of flowers for the gaming table, last time I tried crewel work, then painting on silk, this tim 60 count silk gauze and chinese silk floss. I’m making two versions ( the upper one on the photo is not done yet).

Petitpoint

This is my first attempt with 60 count gauze, but I could manage without magnifier. Pretty happy about it!

I have a small piece of 72 count gauze, though I’m not so sure about trying it for now.
