Here's all of it so far:

The remaining rows follow the blue lines and are couched and beaded trim and ribbons.  I pulled out all of my trimming stuff and don’t have much in the 1/8 inch size. I’ll have to make do with what I have and it will be good.

The pattern called for two packets of 00151 ash mauve Mill Hill beads.  I think I will use different colors and maybe different sizes of beads for my bag.  Stay tuned....

Did you work row 41 in individual Cross and Straight stitches, or did you use the Zigzag stitch?
Your sampler is coming along nicely, I especially like the Arrow stitches.
Looking forward to what you will do with the ribbon, braid and beads.
