The beads have been added to Melissa's block. I still have to do the last tiny things...you know my own personal rule "When you are done...add three more things!" So, I will review all the work and place a tiny charm or bead here and there to finish it up. Then, it's into the mail to Melissa in California! Here is the final photo of the whole block! Beads do make a huge statement don't they!
And, the upper right corner. The crochet flowers now have pearl centers and I've added a couple of green acrylic leaves. Between these, large rose beads have been stitched...with white pearl leaves.
