Embroidered Seam Treatments

I have been helping a friend out by working some simple embroidery over the seams of one of his early period tunics. The ground fabric is wool and the embroidery is in DMC Perle cotton. The combination is very pleasant to work with, and works up easily.

Blanket stitch on edges supplemented with a couple of stitches in the middle

I like to use this trick to keep my stitches relatively even; I mark the distance between the stitches on the index finger of the hand I use to hold the piece of fabric that I am embroidering.

Little cross stitches in blue with an orange anchoring stitch worked in the centre
