Finished my Work on Rosa's Block

Rosa's block was so much fun with it's Fall & Sunflowers theme! The third motif I added to the block was this little cross stitch mouse nibbling on an ear of corn, using waste canvas.
I added a button trail on one patch using vintage buttons made of metal and glass and a few beads. They appear very dark in the picture but actually they are a bit brighter and seemed to fit the block.
This is the whole block after two of us have worked on it. I did a few seams as well: one double feather stitched one, a gold metallic herringbone, some green lace with gold bugle beads and a rust coloured cretan stitch. This block is off in the mail this morning to it's next destination to be stitched on some more.
