Filling in the boxes

I worked on filling in the boxes using either the #8 Kreinik and/or DMC #8 is almost all of the boxes I worked on. Except for the one that is in the center which is done with four strands of white floss. The center boxes are going to have beads added and I like to add the beads last to keep from catching my working threads so I moved to filling in the outside boxes which are, so far, darning patterns and quick to stitch.
Also, at the top are new Bada Bling magnets. They are jeweled magnets for the needles. One is red and one is gold and the gold one will move to the Black and Gold design tomorrow! Thanks again for the present!

This is coming right along! If most of the boxes are darning patterns, they'll be done quickly. Which is good--I find adding beads quite time consuming!

It'll look beautiful with a mix of stitching and beads, though, making it worthwhile.
