Two new beaded seams

I added two new seam embellishments to the beaded block.

The first is a basic flat chevron. I like how it looks so nice and precise. I will be going back later to add to each seam. Right now I am focused on getting all of the major seams covered with one stitch. The other is from a beading book I just added to my library, Nancy Eha's Bead Creative Like Crazy. Great book, full of creative ideas for bead embroidery. I used her pointed flowers which I thought would make a nice balance in theme and color to the appliqued flowers I have on the block. In the photo they seem to blend in but with the addition of some foliage, the flowers will become a more prominent motif for that area of the block.

And an overall shot of the block. It is coming together nicely.

Your block is coming along beautifully. The stitches using Nancy's book instructions are wonderful and really catch your eye.
