Continuing to Design
While stitching my rugs and working on my current dollhouse, I have been continuing to design rugs. Sometimes the creative juices start flowing and I stop everything else for days while I design something. I often see a photo of a rug on Pinterest that sparks my interest in design and I have to get my ideas down before I forget them.
The Deborah rug is based on a Chinese rug idea. I found a photo of a small Antique Chinese Nazimal rug and stretched it out to make a larger, more rectangular rug. Since the original colours were shades of blues, they fit in with my current obsession for blue and white.
The Nala rug was inspired by a Marble Mosaic floor picture that I saw. I couldn't believe it was done in marble and felt it would make a perfect rug. I found out through research, that the marble floor was designed from a rug so I have just re-designed it as a miniature rug! I didn't change anything on this design as the lines flowed so well and everything was so well laid out. It was a joy to work on.
Getting back to my obsession with blue and white, I couldn't resist working on the Portia rug. It too, is a fairly accurate rendition of an antique rug that, when I researched it, said it was an example of an Arraiolos rug made in Arraiolos, Portugal.

My name is Yvette, and I will be writing this blog to tell you about the creative process that has gone into the creation of my Petitpoint patterns along with showing the stitching I have done of some of the rugs.
