Transitions, Finished

Transitions is finished!  I'm quite pleased with it overall. 
I ended up using fewer beads than I thought I would in the first section, but I like it.  I stitched the open area with floss in Basketweave before attaching the beads.
I filled in the open areas of Sections 2, 3 & 5.
I redid the "center" in the center section using #12 Kreinik instead of #8 and it is much better.  #8 was just too skimpy. 
Now to find the perfect matt & frame!

WILD APPLAUSE!

I never would be able to do something like this (all the changes would make my head explode) but it looks fabulous. Congratulations!

Thanks everyone. It was a Mad Miters challenge from me to me that I wouldn't inflict on anyone else! Stay tuned for the next one!
