I did end up taking out the first set of gold beads. I will need to order a smaller size of them that will fit better in the corner scroll motifs. I may still use the larger beads for the areas that only have single ones, but I will wait to get the smaller ones and make sure they match in color.
Oh, and please ignore the brown splotch in the middle of the fabric where I had to pull out stitches. It will eventually be covered by other stitches once I get back up to that section.
