Lace, Motifs, ribbon embroidery,
Embroidery stitches on every seam not already covered with lace.
I tend to mix up the textures on all layers. The stitches are done in 6 strand DMC, and Perle DMC. and fine wool, and crochet threads are used too. Sparkly knitting cotton is a favourite.
In fact anything that will stitch and is relatively strong.
And then I get to add yummy beads. :)
