Row 4 & 8
I added row 4 & 8. See the line of encroaching Gobelin below the top row and above the Herringbone row? Some progress here and there.

So I was working along on row 7 and caught my mistake! I started row 6 over one thread further than I should. See above. It is supposed to line up with row 5! I am ripping it all out and starting over!

Row 6 & Beads
I added the beads in the four way continental boxes. Then row 6 at the bottom is Perle 8 in Double Leviathan stitches tied with #8 in 002.

Kirk & Hamilton
The last shopping purchase! This is a Kirk & Hamilton canvas and a partial of the threads for this design. I have set it aside for now as there isn't a deadline on it. I got it at Cabbage Row Shoppe in Charleston. It is going to be a present and am not sure if it will be a pillow or framed yet.
