The other "Old & New" design has now been stitched, in silver blue and purple Petite Treasure Braid. Unfortunately the sparkle doesn't really show up in the pic :-( . The fabric is opalescent lugana.

And here is a small sneak preview of the beaded version of old & New 1:

:applesauce: :applesauce: Wish the sparkle came through better, but that is often a problem with photos. Very delicate and elegant!

Brilliant work on the white/blue one, looks like finely made lace. Cat is cute & other one pretty too. Such varied designs again Mabel, each one has its own appeal but definitely love the white one. :applesauce: :applesauce:

The sparkly may not show up, but the piece is still so delicate and beautiful.

We've been away for a bit so I haven't posted pics of this even though I finished it last Monday. It's Old & New 1 in beads, and boy it pops, especially in sunshine! I wish I could post it here in 3D :-) - the closest thing is a straight-on and a slightly angled, sun-drenched view.

*sob* It's black...
Is there any way of getting the fabric to look black without making the beads too dark?

probably not. I know that when my husband put together a photo gallery of his paintings, he had to take the photos outside in sunlight or the colors would really be completely different. That might work. Or a professional photographer could?
