Victorian French Knot Rug

The lap stand has really proved its weight in gold, I am stitching a lot faster and easier than before. I have started a rug for the parlor of my Victorian dollhouse, I am using french knots again as I like the pile look that it gives to the rug, I found the chart here and there are lots more on this site to enjoy!!!!

Elga, this is going to be a wonderful carpet again, I am looking forward to see it grow under your capable hands!

Elga, It is going to be stunning!! I have a kit to make one of these rugs and haven't started it yet. Are you using one or two threads? By the way. I purchased a small table that you made with a decoupage top from Francois and really love it!! Your work is wonderful!

It looks very nice.
I think the pattern is very well done.
The colors are beautiful.
I am looking forward to see how the result is.

Greetings, Alexandra

Elga, your rugs and furniture are amazing. I hope that you don't mind that I directed people to your blog, from mine, yesterday. I think that everybody should see what you are doing.This latest rug is beautiful. The colors are just right!

Thank you all!!!!

Patty, I am using one strand of DMC and I wrap my thread around the needle once, I count it off a chart just like you would do for regular needlepoint or cross stitch except that I use a knot for every stitch.

Casey, I don't mind at all, I tried to choose colors that would match my wallpaper, the Victorians definitely wasn't shy when it came to choosing colors!!!!
