Crazy quilt seam treatments

Here are some more seam treatments that I completed today...

Above is a fairly simple treatment, done using waste canvas 
in order to keep the stitches even.  

Below is a piece of tatting, highlighted with some gold beads.

Below I used pearl cotton to make the lazy daisy flowers,
gold embroidery floss to make the cretan stitches,
and silk ribbon fargo roses to
finish it off.

MA....very nice seam embellishments. Also you are so techno savvy, not like this old dino. Now off to prove I am not a robot...

I didn't know you knew how to tat. I try to learn a couple of times but it didn't stick. Do you use a hoop when embroidering? Your stitches are lovely.

Pretty. I especially like that cretan with the lazy daisy flowers. I may have to borrow that one some time.
