Persian Fantasy: Area 2

We are having another nice rainy day here, but hey I do not dare complain about it since we have had many years of draught lately and it has not been a pretty sight, so I will take all the rain that they are willing to send us. The trees are just loving it and have never looked so good and such in good health. My little basil plants though do not seem to like having wet feet all the time, so the old saying that we can't please everyone all the time remains true even in nature (grinning).
Well, I have just completed Area 2 of Persian Fantasy and here is a photo of it. That gold metallic thread (I think it is vatican gold) with that cranberry thread is really something. It brings the whole canvas alive. The photo does not even begin to show you how pretty it is. I still need to stitch his twin on the opposite side of the canvas and then I will be done with this first assignment. We get a new assignment every two weeks.
I just keep thinking how pretty this will be on my wall as I intend to have mine framed though having it finished as a pillow is certainly an option as we can see from the photographs on Jane's website. Of course, that would be the kind of pillow that you just look at it. Beware the person who would DARE use it for his or her own personal comfort :-(

I love the cranberry shade of silk and the silver brings it to life

Terry, Cynthia & Pat,

This one is a show stopper. It is like if you were walking down the street, looking here and there and walking in front of it and moving on and then it registers that you have just seen something special and you go back and have a longer look. This is how I feel about this piece. I always have to give it a second look :-)
