The Persian - 18.25 hrs

by brae  

Continuing work on the Persian rug.  I'm now at 18.25 hours of stitching.  I've had a few sessions of pulling knots back out to get the colors right and have added two more browns to the mix since the darkest brown that worked for the red border was too stark in the lighter areas.  I think it looks very rich, and I'm pleased with it so far.

Here are the needles I'm using, John James embroidery in size 10.  I has helped immensely to have multiple needles in play so I can have many different colors threaded for the small areas without having to stop to change colors.

Stitched in French knots on printed poplin.

So lovely! Is there something you do while stitching? TV show or podcast? I find it more relaxing to have background noise.

Thank you! :>>

I do have the TV going or movies I’ve seen before. Having a new-to-me movie on slows down my progress due to distraction. :yes:
