I did however cheat and spend an evening or two putting together this cutie. It's an older Mill Hill Kit. All beads. It was really different because some of the beads are not attached as a single bead to the perforated paper but instead 3-4 beads put on one strand and then fit into the empty space. Gives it a very organic look which I really like. It's the transparent purple ones in the between the gold that are done this way. They kind of look just fit into place (because they are).

And so my obsession with the little perforated kits continues. They continue to be the best thing on days when my hand is acting up (too shaky or too numb) to allow me to stitch my 'fancier' projects. Because stitching is stitching whether the skill level be high or low.
