Butterfly Lace - Center's Done

I finished the center for Butterfly Lace over the weekend but didn't get a chance to post a picture till now. See the unstitched fabric square between the rhodes stitches and the darker blue x's? That's going to be fully beaded. Same goes for the 4 corners!! This thing is going to bliiiiiing!! :D


Close up of the inner center showing the back and long stitches.

Chinese Garden is back on the scroll frame. I was too tired to work on it last night, but with IHSW this weekend, I'm hoping to get a big chunk of Part 10 done. :D
