Valentine Block Day 2


Valentine Block Day 2

I somehow managed to sit still for a few hours yesterday so today now, I have something interesting to show!

I handpainted an applique and some tiny daisy trim. I believe that trim is left over from my wedding dress which my mother made. Anyway, I sew the little daisies around the heart and then beaded them.

I added some cream colored lace and beaded that with some tiny heart beads. I think they're quartz or some natural stone that were dyed. My friend Lula sent them to me years ago and I've been saving them. I don't know why or for what, I just couldn't bring myself to cut the string and use them. But I knew they would be perfect for this project so I cut the string and sewed some on!

I added sequins and the blue braid as well. I'll probably do some beading on the applique next.
