Around the World in 80 Stitches, Part I

I finally finished Part I of this SAL! Without further ado, I present to you the beginnings of my autumn themed piece:

Part I: Beads have since been removed

I decided on bead colors, too- I'm on a roll! I'm going with Purple Passion (Mill Hill 03053) & Victorian Gold (Mill Hill 02011). I did a bead toss & these colors really add to the piece without overwhelming it.

The right side looks so bare now!
