Side Area

The sun came out today!  This is actually better colors!
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!
