The hem of my rug.

Thanks to Elga and hereby my almost finished rug.

Start in the middle of the rug to make the hem.

This was my first time I embroidered such a small rug. Finishing it was also the first time. I'm proud that I could manage it so there will be more rugs in the future. 

Tatatataaa !!! The rug on the parquet floor of the living room. It's so funny because that's all there is at the moment. Just a piece of parquet floor.
Today I start with making marble of wood. At first I have to experiment with that. It's my first time making marble.  I'll keep you informed of my bumbling.

Embroidery tips and techniques.

I just came along a site that I like to share with you. On this site you can find all kind of tips for embroidery. Also videos to show you how it's done.
I wish you a lot of fun during your embroidery job.

Carpet 1:12 is ready.

I'm having a serious problem. My carpet is ready but I don't dare to cut away the canvas.
When someone knows the solution please put it in the comments I would appreciate it very much if you do.

The rug is almost finished. I'm so glad that I still can embroider.I didn't make fringes on this rug because I like it the way it is yet.

Now I have to solve my problem. Cutting down the unnecessary bulk. What is the best finishing method ??? I'm still puzzled.

These three colors I used for the rug. I'm still having a lot of DMC. So I can embroider cushions, Bell Pulls and Chair Covers. But I've had a enough embroidery for the moment.

I used the book Miniature Embroidery for the Georgian Doll House by Pamela Warner. During the Victorian period they used flower patterns. Georgian is also wright because that's the period before the Victorian. So you did inherit the rug. There are all kind of patterns inside this book so I can also use it for Chair Covers. 

My next project will be the staircase. I like the steps to look like they're made of marble. I had to wait till my natural sponge was delivered. It's in the house so I start tomorrow with the steps of the stair.

The carpet embroidery is still going on...

As promised I'll keep you informed about the progress of the carpet.
It's a very slow process because it makes me squint of. Hereby the last pictures I made of the carpet.

It's still a long way to be continued.

An old camera 1:12 for my doll house.

As promised here are the pictures I made from my camera.

The material I've used for the camera are 4 nails, balsa wood, lock nut, cardboard.

I had to paint and glue so that takes a while. I used the colors gold, brown and black from Humbrol. This paint is still in the house because my son made some airplanes when he was younger and now I can use them for my doll house.

The camera is almost ready and the legs of the tripod are drying.

The camera and tripod are ready. Now I only have to combine the camera and tripod and then it's ready.

I'm proud to present !!!!!
