What materials did you use? Madelinetosh Prairie in Cosmos with gold beads. The beading on the border wasn?t hard for me to get the hang of. Ditto for the nupps. But the beading in the middle lace section was tricky for me to line up properly. So I ended up placing the beads in the center section in a slightly different way, using fewer because I thought it nicely highlighted the stitches while adding less weight to the piece. And I was having trouble lining up the beads as indicated in the pattern anyway so this was a solution that saved me from an expensive yarn bonfire. Laceweight yarn shows every oops.

What are you most proud of? That I didn't give up.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take deep breaths. And really do the center panel chart first until you've got it. Laura wasn't kidding about frogging hundreds of stitches several times if you skip that step.
