Using DMC Perle, color 3753, I put in the partial Jessicas in all the corners to fill in the area outside the gold X's. This stitch was done using a single strand of the size 12. Then, again using the DMC Perle, I attached a Mill Hill Bugle Bead, 72009, going through each one twice to secure in the center of the Jessica.
I think the stitching rotation is going along fairly well. I can see progress in each piece, and, I haven't gotten confused yet! LOL
