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:

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.

Dollshouse from Kensington Palace

Author: Виктория, July 16, 2014 в History

This time I had to make a break, I have a terrible luck with nannies. I’m hoping to get one next week, but for now I’m super jealous of those lucky girls who have grannies 🙂 My kid just turned one last week and I’m not getting younger, the good thing about birthdays – I got a superb present from my husband, Proxxon planer. I had no time to test it properly, so I’ll leave it for now till the next post.

Now for some photos from London, this time – from Kensington palace and V&A museum, this one is a dollhouse which was made for Queen Victoria:

Holidays.

Author: Виктория, January 10, 2014 в Furniture, Furniture, Furniture, Furniture, 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.

Roombox. The Rug.

Author: Виктория, November 28, 2013 в Commissions, 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

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.
