I've spent the last two days messing around with adding silk ribbon and beads to Antique Lace. I'll have to figure out how exactly to do the ribbon as I've never actually stitched with it before, but it'll be a fun challenge!! I'm ordering lots of ribbon in case I screw it up. lol
You can't really tell from the mock up where the beads will end up, but I promise I didn't go too crazy. It's only about 1000. Given that in all there's over 40000 cross stitches alone, that's not that many!! :D Of course the beads are optional and could always be replaced with a cross stitch if beads aren't your thing.
And now I need to stop fiddling. I'm happy with it.
