Lillian's Heart: ready to sew

Click on the photo to see it closer.
This is the best photo colorwise of all the photos of this heart.

I stayed up late tonight and finished the final details for the flowers. Now it's ready to sew and finish. I love this heart! I think it's my favorite one I've made so far. I love every one I make but this one I really, really love. I think it's because of the colors and the Swarovski crystal beads and the rose ribbon is antiqued with tea. I love how it is encrusted with ribbon stitch leaves vining inward. I also like the swirls on the monogram.
I think Lillian is going to love it! I also think I might make one similar for myself!

And the tye dying was brillant... Lillian is going to just go NUTS over this heart. Just you wait and see... What a lucky lady! Brenda

I hadn't looked at the progress of this block in a while, and boy, am I totally impressed. You do a GREAT job, Melissa. As Brenda said, you have real talent.
