First, all of the diamond lattice pattern is done with 2 strands of #12 Perle. Then the gold filigree pattern was worked with DMC Fil inside of them and in the center of the box. Cross stitches were placed over the intersections with 2 ply of Bijoux and then 1 x 4 crosses were placed over the lattice with one ply of the same Bijoux. The Pinwheel Mistake stitch is worked with #8 Kreinik and then diagonal stitches worked around it with 1/16 ribbon. This completes this area and page 10 is done!

The triangles are tri-layered. Perle 5 was stitched diagonally across each one. Then Marlitt was stitched over the top of those from the other angle to create padding. Finally Sprat's Heads were worked in a single ply of DMC Fil over the top of those. Very sparkly!
and that completes pages 6 and 7!
