Valentine Swap Block Finished

Highlighted left top side of the block. I used red/white flat type oyas that are called "with cheery". I especially used a few tone lighter green ribbons to make leaves, that they gave a better look. At the right side of the block I made a small spray. I used contrast color ribbons and added a few pearls.


This is the final look of my first Valentine swap project. Hope my swap partner likes what I've done for her.

Rengin, I'm in the SRE group, also. This has been a fun swap. I did a postcard for Florence. Your wall hanger is so beautiful!! I hope I can swap with you in the future. Do you know where I can learn more about oyas? The work is beautiful and looks very interesting. I am always looking for a new craft. You do lovely work. Peggy in Fl, USA

Simply beautiful~

Rengin, it looks like you are the "go-to" person for oyas and information:)

Rengin Yazitas said...

Ladies,
Thank you so much for your all nice words...
I'm so happy that this amazing needle art is getting popular once again. I had always a fear that oyas shall be forgetten by time.
Love,
Rengin

Dear Shashi,
Please use oyas on your beautiful doll projects. I also treasure all those wonderful beads and charms you gave. Have you seen some of them on the Header photo of my block?
I came to London for a short visit on Dec.30. Unfortunately, I couldn't contact you in that heavy program. Hope to see you on spring.
Much Love,
Rengin
