My mother liked her Dolls House Carpet so much that, like the Danes, she asked for more. "I need one for the drawing room, one for the dining room, and one for the master bedroom. And one for the nursery."
Did I say it was a large house?
She chose these from the pattern book. The first is based on a Kazak rug. The coin to the side is a twenty pence piece and the carpet measures about 6 inches by 4 inches.
Like the Holbein carpet, theses are all Susan McBaine designs, and all stitched in DMC Medici. It was a long time ago and I'm not sure what I learned from these except:
1. I still had problems counting;
2. If you do a project, the prayer rug in this case, with a lot of background and you stitch part of it in tent stitch and the rest in basketweave your backside looks ugly and;
3. I was NOT going to stitch stair carpets!
