Vintage Victorian DYB RR - My work on Alice's block

I've started to work on Alice's colorful block before our trip. Unfortunately I couldn't finish it as I planned before our departure, I would like to repeat  my thanks to RR group members for their understanding.
 I started my work with making a mimosa spray on the wine color patch which made an excellent color mix with the top yellow patch. I used small golden charms with green seed beads,  their combo  looked pretty. As my CQ buddies and followers know, I like to use chain stitch very much, I like its lovely appearence on the patches and it provides a great background to create new seam treatments easily.
 My RR partners like me to use oyas, I keep use diffferent oya models on each block as much as I can. I prefer small types otherwise in these 6X6" small blocks I can lose control of embellishment harmony.  I used green bugles under the silk print and did bullion sttiches with yellow silk threads, 14-16 wraps with one ply thread.  I embroidered my name on this block with metallic thread. 

The silk print of the block is black&white. I just added Swarovsky crystal beads as Victorian Lady's necklace to catch nice harmony with main patch's  lovely wine color tone. I hope Alice likes what I've done on her block. We're coming to end of another RR, I'll have just two more blocks to play with.  Happy stitching.....
