Persian Fantasy, Area 5: Three sides done

The last couple days, I spent time doing some gardening work with my husband so that has slowed me down a bit on my stitching. It has also tired me out as I have been using muscles that I do not normally use while stitching and I can feel the pain and I am afraid that we need to do more of it in the coming days, so .............
Anyway, I have just added another photo showing the third side of area 5 that has been completed. One more and I will be ready to move on to lesson 3.
For those of you who are wondering why the big pile of threads in the middle, I have got a very easy explanation for you. It is simply to cover the blank canvas as if I don't do that we will all be staring at wavy lines. I have never been able to photograph blank canvas without those nasty wavy lines. If someone knows how to do this, please take pity on me and let me know how you do it as I sure can't. Just in case someone would like to volunteer, here is my email address: :-)
I will now start working on the fourth side until I hear my husband calling for me to go outside and do backbreaking work :-(

this is looking great and this photo gives a little more idea of the design. I am wondering if it is not just a Persian Fantasy but that you are stitching a flying carpet ready to escape any bad weather ROFL

Hope that the garden work is not too much, here its pouring with rain and freezing cold and I have had to put the central heating on

That would be nice if it were a flying carpet. That would sure beat out the broom that you have been using for flying around these days (I do love all these Halloween stuff, so much fun, right)

No chance of rain today and it the temperature will be in the 80 degrees so am afraid I don't have much of an excuse not to do any :-(

Oooh, this is going to be a wonderful piece. Don't have the answer to photographing canvas, sometimes mine are wavy and sometimes not. Maybe it's the distance from canvas to camera?
