In January 2018, I began stitching my first dollhouse rug. I started with 40 count silk gauze and found that it was very easy to see because the threads were quite thin so the holes were much larger than the usual evenweave cross stitch fabrics I was used to.
This rug is of my own design and was designed to grace the floors of my dollhouse which I named "Butterfly House". This pattern will not be available on my online store because there are elements in this design which are not my own. Never-the-less, I really enjoyed putting this design together and stitching it.
You may notice that I don't have the gauze on a wooden frame. Someone from the Petitpoint group I belong to suggested that I use heavy matboard and tape it in place. I did this and put another piece of matboard on the back to hold it more securely. I found I really enjoyed using a frame that was so lightweight. It was very easy to hold and to take with me on long car rides!
Since I didn't start this blog until December 2019, I will be posting progress photos in order until I have caught up with my current project. Hope you enjoy reading about my journey as much as I enjoyed living it.
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.
