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.

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 Furniture, Furniture, Furniture, WIP, WIP, 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

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.

First blanket finished

Author: Виктория, October 13, 2009 в Uncategorized

I love uploading pictures! That’s why you see lot of them in my blog!:)  As it was very lazy day, I decided to finish the blanket.  I’m almost satisfied, I love Russian ornaments  and all, but this blanket, firstly it reminded me of Christmas time, remember all those nice sweaters? Then, when I finished I thought – it looks like a sleeve of a shirt, shirt in Russian style:)

First Blanket

Author: Виктория, October 11, 2009 в Dollhouse

   When it’s quiet at home, when you’re tired of everything and just want to spend sometime alone.
    Enough of words, I love embroidery! In my doll’s house there should be a lot of it – blankets, towels, tablecloths, curtains.
    I started with blankets for the bedroom on the second floor, I think I’ll finish it in couple days. I got through some antique Russian ornaments of 18th century and here’s the part of what I’ve done:

The ornament is easy, also I’m not sure if it would be on the bed or somewhere in the chests:)
