A small progress on a petit point rug designed by Nicola Mascall. One page is almost done (and I have 15 more!)
So far I made just one mistake and managed to fix it, the back is okay too
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!
