Chippendale Firescreen

Author: Виктория, May 11, 2019 в Uncategorized

After pretty successful experience with higher count petit point, I decided that I can make another screen, but this time on 90 count silk gauze. I found this screen in a book dedicated to Thomas Chippendale 300th anniversary of birth. It’s pretty tall 169.5cm high, the screen itself is pretty large too.

I should also say that the original screen is fully made of wood, in my version a pole and a finial are made of brass. The finial was traditional too, but I made a parrot 🙂

The screen is stitched on a 90 count silk gauze, with Chinese silk floss.

French Firescreen, the second version.

Author: Виктория, May 11, 2019 в Uncategorized

I don’t really understand how I missed that one on my blog, I took it to IGMA school last year and haven’t posted about it! This screen is a bit different, it has a higher count silk gauze (86) and different design, besides the frame has a different finish.

A bit of a process:

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 Uncategorized

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 Uncategorized

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 Uncategorized

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.

Petit point
It’s 72 count silk gauze, Russian silk.

Holidays.

Author: Виктория, January 10, 2014 в Furniture, Furniture, Furniture, Furniture, Furniture, WIP, WIP, 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 Uncategorized

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.
