A bit of inspiration
Here's an update pic of Alpine Seasons (hopefully to inspire those struggling with lining up parts 4 and 5). I finished one of the sides last night and I've nearly done a second side. The beading took a surprisingly long time, and the whole effect is a bit of a surprise to me (it's paler and pinker than I thought it would be from the screenshot), but it works. It's one of those things that doesn't look right until you've got the last stitch in, then it looks great!
