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!
