Persian Fantasy: A Jane D. Zimmerman cyberclass with Shining Needle Society

For the last few days I have been working on "Persian Fantasy" designed by Jane D. Zimmerman. Jane is teaching this cyberclass on Shining Needle Society.
There are different color options offered for this design and I selected Green and Cranberry for mine instead of blue.
I don't seem to have done much so far on this project, but that would be entirely false. There were lots of prework to do as we had to mark the canvas intersections for all areas of the design. This was relatively easy to do but took quite a bit of time. Then I had to outline all the bands with tent/reverse tent/back stitches.
The photo above shows Area 1 (historical florentine stitch) using all the colors that will be included in this project except the dark green. I have another one like this to stitch that is located on the opposite side and then Area 2 (which is an hungarian point) which I still have to stitch two of of the same.
I will be back with another photo as soon as Area two has been stitched.

Hi Pierrette,

You have a great start, especially with the pre-work done!

I'm looking forward to watching you stitch "Persian Fantasy". :-)

WOW what an exciting start, I will watch this with great interest and I just know that you will create a work of art from this design, love the sparkle of it and look forward to seeing how the colour combinations show as it progresses

I agree with Cyn and Terry! You have gotten a great deal done, and it is so pretty and shiny! Nice choice!

Hi Pierrette,
I love the colors you've chosen, green and cranberry, yummy! SNS has offered so many wonderful stitching opportunities and this is certainly one more! Have fun.

This is the first project in which there are so much prework like this, but it will be well worth every minute of it by the time it is completed.

This project is an attention grabber and I love my color choice.
