Persian Fantasy: Area 9 - One corner stitched

After working a little bit on my brazilian project yesterday, I then switched to Persian Fantasy, a needlepoint project on which I have not worked on for a little while now. I have stitched one corner, area 9, which are variations of Japanese silk and metal embroidery filling patterns. I like the look of it but I did not enjoy stitching it at all and I still have 3 other corners to do. I guess there is always some parts in a project that we enjoy less than the rest and I have just reached it :-(

I took an overall picture for you so that you can get some idea of what has been done so far. This last filling really makes the corner stands out. It is a lovely design and I will get it done for sure :-)

I enjoy seeing your posted photos of your needlework. Persian Fantasy is beautiful - the colors are so rich. I look forward to watching this one continue to grow.
Take care,

Hi Pierrette,

You may not have enjoyed stitching the corner but it's beautiful!

And at least it wasn't green. :-)

I almost puchased this project but since I have so many I just couldn't do it, especially since I ordered the ANG Heart in Log Cabin project.

Hi Lisa,

I agree with you. Persian Fantasy is a lovely project.

I will continue to include that piece in my rotation.

Hi Terry,

Yes, the center for last, like the cherry you put on top of a sunday. I guess I must be in the mood for ice cream :-)

Hi Cynthia,

Right, at least it wasn't green.

I can understand you not purchasing it as we all have to limit ourselves in the amount of projects we purchase as there is a limit to what we can stitch in a lifetime, though we seem to often forget that :-)

Hi Anne,

Everything is a lot of work when we are stitching. That is probably the reason why nobody wants to pay the amount of money that a finished piece is worth :-(
