Based in a Parisian cafe in the 1920's. There are lots of different fill patterns used here to highlight and accentuate light and shade and make a lovely addition to your blackwork portfolio of fills. Gold blending filament is used in the ladies hat, necklace and handbag. There is a small amount of cross Stitch in the picture.

X-Calibre The Unexpected Guest. 1920's Black Work Design by Carol Leather.
One has to wonder what the couple were engrossed talking about before the guest the look on the ladies face, she's listening intently to what the new comer is saying .... what ever is she thinking?
I like the way the word "Cafe" is opaque. It's there but in the background.
Looks great as a stand alone picture..
