Winter Petersburg?

I got a very early start on this month's biscornu. This is a 15-sided biscornu by Olga. I think it's called Зимний Петербург, which Google Translate says is Winter Petersburg (I would greatly appreciate any corrections from anyone who knows Russian.)

Winter Petersburg
16 ct red aida
The original is on evenweave so I've had to make some changes since I don't want to keep piercing the fabric. I also just realized that I'm supposed to weave another thread through those running lines in the middle squares, so I have to go do that.

This is really a lovely pattern. Should make a really showy biscornu. I don't think I'd have the patience to sew that many sides together, but you will probably finish it in no time!

Looking forward to seeing this finished. Love biscornus but have not tried a 15 sided yet.
