I used various kind of beads, sequins and bugles on the laces, most of them are Swarovski crystals and small charms that I was keeping for special projects...As you all know, we keep our stashies for the special projects:)))
I used gray color silk thread to make Chevron stitch under the Victorian Lady photo.... I had flower form small silver charms I sewed them securely with black beads on to left side of the print, it looked like a nice trim with bugles on the lace.
I was planning to make pink fargo roses between stitches but I when I found some old crystals with neat colors I changed my mind. I guess, they made a nice harmony with the base color of the fabric with rose motifs. The only things are those pinky crystal beads that I used on the block as colorful things. They are pretty enough to cheer up the block, the rest of the block is dark colors.
I embroidered a little fan with soft gray color of silk thread at left side. I liked its harmony with the original motif of the fabric.
At right side, I made one of my favorite stitch, Hideko likes it too, I especially made it for her with black silk thread and added dark sead beads.
I hesitated to add some frilly things on the Victorian Lady print or not. I just added an earring and necklace with neat color sead beads to make them...
I hope Hideko also likes what I did.
At last, I added some other small charms, they added more femminen apparence.So, I completed my work on the first block of this lovely Victorian Lady theme RR, waiting another block to play.
