"Heart" swap block finished:)

Finally, I completed embellishment part of the little heart that I make for Mary. It is the most fun part so I completed easily. At first, I did one of my favorite seam treatment with long chain stitches, after adding their seed beads, I decided to add a beaded oya trim on the pink patch to make a good contrast with the bottom beige fabric. I didn't want to leave beaded oya trim as it is...I added pearl drops and chain stitches to form little flowers at its top side.

I think, these little antique looking charms looked nice!
I like these little oyas so much and I love to use them at every possibility. I added a few of them on the right side and made final touches with green floss and added small butterlies.

This is the final of the little block. Now, I'll applique it on the muslin that Mary sent me with her swap baggie. I made my heart according to its original size as she drew on the muslin. Afterwords it will be ready to start its long journey.
I have another RR block to complete as of Wednesday than I'll start a new project. I'm so excited about it. Of course I'll share it here with you all:))
