There are small eyelet stitches scattered throughout the design. One stitcher substituted Mill Hill beads (#02012) She changed the oatmeal floss to a shade of gold. I followed her suggestion and stitched mine the same way.
As an alternate suggestion for finishing this beautiful piece, Leslie Ann Hale stitched it and had it finished as a pillow. STUNNING!!
