Details of my block - Seam treatments

The left/bottom side of the block is fan model, that little triangle shape lace found its place easily and I mounted new type violets its top...At the upside, I kept continue to try seam treatments...of course, using beads, sequins, bugles, charms as I always do...Some CQ'ers doesn't like sequins but, I like to use them especially their contrasts on the fabrics are lovely for me.
Those buttons must be too old, that I have used several of them on the block...I bought them from Ankara several years ago. The owner of the store who remembered my mother as being his an old, loyal customer....I'm talking about circa 1970. He brought two big boxes of vintage buttons and said to me "These are from Cheslovakia, samples of the discontinue products, if you want to buy, just pay me a symbolic amount....". As you can imagine, I was in the candy shop, selected so many lovely vintage buttons and paid a symbolic amount. All those discontinue product samples are on my block now. I'm grateful for his favor. I always visit that stores whenever I go to Ankara and pay lots of money.
I used silk floss threads to make my Bullions stitches, one ply thread, 18 and 20 turns....
Those violet oyas are new types, I love their natural look
The lace looked so naked I did a chain stitch at the edges and added sead beads.
