Diagonal Half Rhodes

I finished all of the beads on the Helen's Lace and moved onto page 12.  The diagonal half rhodes is worked with Splendor.  Then the rectangles are formed with Kreinik and the long diagonals are more Splendor.  DMC Fil is laid in long diagonal stitches around the border to complete that area.

Moving on to the next area.  I had to remove the large cross stitches that I had worked in Perle.  The original charts showed them filled in while I was outlining but the instruction page says to work them in Splendor.  It just took a few minutes to frog and fix.  Then upright crosses in Kreinik are worked over the top and a long row of diagonal stitches over one form the edge.
