Filling in the grids

The bottom left corner is filled in using overdyed perle, matching the overdyed floss, used to complete the grids. It is worked with one strand for the pattern. It really shines in person! the center pattern is stitched using Kreinik Perlee, working on the diagonal. Then I used Kreinik cord and worked a cross stitch over 2 x 2 threads in the center of each pattern. It, too, is really sparkly!
I peeked--the bottom right grid is going to be filled with Marlitt! Stay tuned!

Hi Pat,

The picture is very clear so I can see the stitches in detail.

This looks so calm and elegant. I''m looking forward to seeing what is stitched next.
