On the Seamy Side RR - Jeanne's block

I have just had the pleasure of working on Jeanne's block in the On the Seamy Side Round Robin at CQI. This round robin dictates which stitch we use each go round of the round robin. This time it was the feather stitch so I used that both as a beaded feather stitch seam as well as for the basis of the silk ribon florals etc I added to the lace already on the block.
I also threaded some gold braid through the lace above and below the floral design. Below this I added my first attempt at a Beaded Hedebo Edge that I found in A - Z of Embroidery Stitches 2 book. This edge shows in the picture of the whole block but not in the detail picture above.



I really enjoy doing feather stitch in beads as shown. The stitch seems to lend itself so well to being embroidered with beads.

The beaded feather stitch is fantastic, I've never seen it done like that before
