Comforting block for Hideko

I made this little comforting heart block for Hideko who lost her mother recently. I waited block's arrival to Japan to post these photos. I wanted to make something different other than a heart applique. I used a heart shape charm on the solid color fabrics and surrounded it with oyas. As you see I used pastel color fabrics and used various oyas with the neat colors. The beaded lace oya is one of my favorite type, I especially used it to make a good contrast with the white patch of the right side.
Here is another close up photo to show you a lovely lace. I used this lovely lace which is from Maureen's store. It looked so pretty on the mist mint color fabric, I added same color small pearls but unfortunately the photo doesn't judge those colors perfectly. If you would like to have this lace you must visit Maureen's site, she offers wonderful goodies.
I wish I could make this block for Hideko with another reason but so sad that this the reality of the world, we lose our precious ones!!!

It's lovely Rengin. And you are right, we should make blocks for an other reason but it is comforting to get some nice mail in sad times.

Rengin, Your "comforting block" is beautiful as are you! I've just got to use the oyas. I have so many and can't decide which to part with. Maureen

Rengin your block for Hideko is truly beautiful. I like your Oyas and the flat ones are super.

I have only used a few as it is hard to part with them..I look at them often but will share soon.

Dear Hideko,
As I've told you before, I wish I could make it for another reason.
I believe that friendships are much more important during our hard times!!!
Take care of yourself,
Much Love
