After a bit of a battle with the beads, here's my Pompeii Garden progress!
Hand-dyed 32ct is too small for this many beads really. Especially horizontally as the beads are a teeny bit wider than they are long. I should have gone to 30ct, but I think it'll be OK when stretched for framing (a long way down the road!). And I'm not changing the fabric now! It was a bit of a fight to get a couple of them in there and you can see the edges bulging a bit. It's certainly not perfect and it doesn't lie flat unless you stretch it. But it's very sparkly!
