thought it would be. Jan also has finished hers, do take a look at her lovely finish!
I have used heavier threads than the designer suggested for most of this project, and, therefore have run out of threads twice! I also ran out of beads. The joys of working from stash!
I did not want to go across town to my LNS just for a few beads, so instead I used a different color for the beads in the center diamond and a different thread color as well.
And, I didn't care for the look of these very shiny Magnifica beads using the pattern that Peggy designed for the center diamond area. Instead, I redesigned it to be the same style as the corners. I actually like that though and DH says it looks like it was supposed to be that way. High praise indeed.
