Rugs in Miniature 

Some of my favorite things to stitch are miniature rugs. I found a work in progress the other day and maybe I'll have time to stitch on it again soon.

I really appreciate Frank Cooper's book Oriental Carpets in Miniature. Although his models are stitched in wool on 18 ct. canvas, I have been stitching them on 40ct silk gauze with DMC (single strand). I've finished one and have the camel rug about half finished. I have to stitch a border of camels around the entire center section and then finish it off with a little geometric border. I have no idea what on earth I will ever do with them, but I do enjoy stroking these little rugs.
