The final box!
The final box is done! I started by doing a series of crossed stitches around the Smyrna crosses-the silver. Then gold Kreinik is interwoven over the crosses. Elegance created the modified Sheaf stitches amongst those. Then more woven stitches in the center and then the Kreinik star is woven over those with a Jessica added to the center. Gold and silver are backstitched around the Smyrna crosses and finally the beads were added. Then more backstitching next to the center panel and below the two rows of silver in the box on the far right. Below is the final photo. Now all I have to do is finish it into the weight.
