Golden Centers

The original directions called for the bargello circles to be filled with ecru eyelets in size 12 perle ... it faded into the background, like the elongated stitches do, but worse. So I used Kreinik braid on them. I think it looks a lot better. I also added really fine gold cord to the elongated cross stitches to make them a bit less subtle too. After this picture was taken, I've finished the bottom row of the red "flowers" and am almost done with the side row of them. There are filling stitches and such on them, too.
