Save the Stitches, Block 5

I’ve finished block 5 of the Save the Stitches blackwork sampler from Blackwork Journey. The metallics are DMC E3837 (purple instead of copper), DMC E815 (red instead of gold), and DMC E3843 (blue instead of silver); the beads are Mill Hill glass seed beads (02097). The chart called for gold (red); I tried purple to make it monochromatic, but they didn’t show up at all, so I used blue since I hadn’t used them yet. Blocks 6 and 7 were released at the beginning of the month, so I’m about caught up.

Here is the whole thing so far:
