An embroidery stand no 2. Stolik do haftu nr 2.


So in reference to my first post about embroidery stands by G.F Kersting here is no 2(which actually should be no 1 according to his paintings. ;))


This is more "stand" for me than previous one, as this one consists of two pair of legs and an embroidery frame which is the only part that bonds legs together.


On the first painting of G.F Kersting only  you can see how the canvas is attached to the frame so I made it seen too (but of course I forgot to make the thread straight when taking pictures...)



This time I also made frame a bit shorter than legs but I think one that is as long as legs(like the first one I made) looks just better.


The embroidery is a faux one as I am (kind of lazy ;)) not as patient and not as half as gifted as many of our cross stiching Friends are.


Hope you will like the embroidery stand no 2. :)

W nawiązaniu do mojego poprzedniego posta o stolikach do haftu G.F.Kersting'a przedstawiam numer 2(choć sugerując się obrazami powinien to być nr 1 ;)).

Tym razem jest to dla mnie raczej podpórka do haftu niż stół, bo składa się z dwóch par nóg i ramy do haftu, która jest jedynym elementem łączącym nogi w jedną całość.

Tylko na pierwszym obrazie G.F.Kerstinga zauważyć można w jaki sposób kanwa przymocowana jest do ramy, postanowiłam więc zrobić takie samo mocowanie w moim stoliku, ale oczywiście zapomniałam ładnie poukładać nitek do zdjęcia. ;)

Tym razem postanowiłam, że rama będzie nieco krótsza od nóg, ale teraz wydaje mi się, że równej długości z nogami (jak przy pierwszym stoliku) wygląda po prostu lepiej.

Haft jest jak najbardziej maszynowy, bo niestety nie starcza mi cierpliwości do haftowania w miniaturze. ;)

Mam nadzieję, że stolik do haftu nr 2 spodoba się Wam. :)

Tak długo nie zaglądałam, a u Ciebie tyle nowości! Piękny stoliczek, a ten poprzedni i tapicerowana leżanka po prostu fantastyczne, świetne wykonanie.

Wow! You have done an amazing job!! It is so realistic and the embroidery is so delicate. I'm jealous - I doubt my fingers could manage that!
Well done

Another wonderful transformation from an inspiration (in this case the painting) to a gorgeous miniaturs. Awesome!

Hi Ewa! This frame is sturdier than the first one... and you can see how the artist or the frame builder wanted to make one that was more graceful in shape. But I am willing to bet that this version is the way they were making them for hundreds of years! It is so sturdy and practical looking! And you have built it so beautifully! I suppose it would have been handed down from generation to generation! You are really going to have to make a little "room box" to show off these beautiful and unique pieces! :):)
