update on the Big Bugger

The Joseph Boria 1029.
I have placed an Euro in the centre ( that is 15/16 inch or 2,35 cms. (Just getting back at all those people who photograph with a dime for comparison- and I have never held a dime in my entire life :-) )
PS The flowers in the last pic were also photographed with an euro.....


  1. ROFL, I'm one of those Americans who often place a penny next to my minis. Not very helpful to most people, LOL.

  2. LOL! But you (and most sellers) also give the measurements, so it does not matter that much, actually :-)

  3. Yo suelo poner un euro, pero al final pongas la moneda que pongas, siempre te fijas en el trabajo y el tuyo es una maravilla.

  4. Bwaahaaa, Ascension , we poor Europeans need euros- not having dimes laying around :-)
    Thank you for your sweet compliments!

  5. thanks for the measurements Elly - I am unfamiliar with dimes, euros or British coins so appreciate the measurements in either inches or cms vbg! The carpet is coming along, and how you can keep it so square when you are doing it 'in hand' is beyond me!!!! It is a stunning piece and I am watching progress with immense interest.

  7. Thank you Maite( hope this is right).It sure will be a big rugger in a far and distant future:-)
    Sandra, my last update was taken with a steel ruler- will do so next time again, promise. Suffice it to say that it is a wide wasteland of gauze at the moment- at least, it feels so!
