Finished piece. by Helens-Serendipity Finished piece. by Helens-Serendipity
At last :w00t:

I have taken so many shot's of this it's unreal :faint: this is certainly the most difficult thing i've had to shoot, it's been on the floor, the door, outside.. you name it... doesn't help it having lines either, alter the angle very slightly & it gave some really odd shots & then trying to choose :faint: even got hubby's eyes on it... not easy :no:
But hey... it's done :dance: & not without it's mistakes either but i'm delighted with it & in the frame it looks much better than i imagined :nod:
There have been some slight changes.. but for the better i think ;)
It's a shame you don't get the real beauty on here.. but hope you like it :D
This is it before the beads went on [link]
Spec's...
Done on Zweigart Quaker cloth 28count.
27 different shades of DMC thread (using 3 strands).
1233 beads... that i thought would never come to an end :faint:

Design by Lavendar Lace.

I LOVE Lavender and Lace designs! This one is so beautiful!

My, this looks hard though. I can't tell if the beads would be fun, or just horrid. I like a few beads, but that might get.... I think the part that would be hard would be the squares that have four beads really close together like that...

They are very good at detail :nod: thank you :D

It's not that hard, as long as you keep your beads the same way up/down ;) it does become a little tedious though :D

I love the colours and all the details on her dress. Impressive, and again, congrats ;)
