Work two days. On its own pattern. "Lya illah il Allah." Red canvas, metallic thread in 4 additions. Size of 13 * 18 cm Very risked by a red outline. But I started this job three times. First time on the red canvas beads, the second time on a black canvas floss, and a third time again on the red canvas metallized thread. And the third time it all came together.
I love this pattern as it isn't in Arabic calligraphy- it's in English. It's nice to know exactly what you're working up. I would do it in gold floss with white aida, probably 20 with all those curves, and I would probably rotate the frame so that it make a diamond rather than the square that it is now.
