Finished with most of the cross stitches. Now I will iron this before attaching the beads. For the rest of the project I will not use a hoop. I will fold the sides over and miter the corners and stitch a border with a green chain stitch around the edge. I stitched the chain stitch border leaving two squares around the outside. Now to attach the beads. I like to do a full cross stitch when attaching the beads. The kit comes with a bead needle which is the right size to fit through the beads. I should hopefully have this complete by the weekend.
