Braids and all

First I finished adding in all the rest of the beads on all four corners.  The I used Perle 8 and dis the straight stitches in sets of five on all four side.  Using Pebbly Perle I did an overlay in a partial eyelet stitch on top of the straight stitches.  Last in the center of those five straight stitches  I created the sets of overlapping triangles using Neon Rays and Ribbon floss to create the braided effects in the centers.

Very pretty effect with all those layers. The letter in the center is going to be quite a let-down after all this!

This is way prettier than other photos I've seen of this project. I may have to locate this for myself.

So pretty! I love all the red. My favorite color, by the way. If Noel needs a home, I am sure I could squeeze it into my decor.
