Night Table Finished!!! Yeah!!!



I finished the embroidery yesterday and put the whole thing together, I am so pleased at how it turned out, the embroidery is covered with 1/32" thick plastic (off-road biking goggles).



View from the side. I used 3/32" thick wood for the top and it was quite a challenge to fit everything in.



View of the top. The embroidery was done on 60 count silk gauze with Gutermann silk thread. The chart is from the book Berlin Work Samplers & Embroidery by Raffaella Serena.

Happy New Year to everyone.

That is just beautiful! I love petit point stitched on #60. It is a charming image! You have stitched it perfectly. I am wondering if you design your own pieces. Do you have a program that can chart a photo so you can stitch it?

Elga said...

Hi Catherine, thanks, no I am not much of a designer, this was stitched from an original Victorian chart, part of a collection of charts published in the book "Berlin Work Samplers & Embroidery of the Nineteenth Century" by Raffaella Serena. I really love that period and enjoy using charts that were published in the 1800's, it gives me such satisfaction to stitch something that was designed so long ago.
