Starting the crosses

All of the cross stitches are in place and I am now going over the Smynras with the + portion in Kreinik #8 093.  The pattern says to use the thread of your choice.  This one will complement the rest of the colors I have chosen.

The next two pattern rows are done!  I have started the next set which is going
to be a series of darning patterns.

More beads

I am working on the face in the black beads.  This is going to take a while!

Filling in

I am adding the cross stitches in the wings.  Remember when all the cross stitches are in place, I will be going over the top of them to change them to Smyrna crosses.
