Notes:
I actually used two slightly different shades of gold beads because I was using stash and didn’t really have enough. Also, the design called for both rectangluar and square Rhodes stitches. In order to submit it into an exhibition in the summer, I switched the square ones to Jessica stitches to comply with requirements.This design was created after Hurricane Katrina and proceeds from the sale were donated to the relief effort.
